Iowahawk decides that if the Star-Tribune is going to waste talent on beat reporting, why not go all the way? The thought of Hunter S. Thompson covering a Little League T-Ball game is funny enough — and the results are even more hilarious. A sample:
When we finally got to Wayzata we made our way to the baseball complex, built in â€™76 by the crewcut fascists of the local American Legion to dull the pain of the Vietnam horror. The parking lot was crammed with every manner of minivan â€“ Caravans, Voyagers, Windstars, Siennas, the bloated metal three-row-seating carcasses of a filthy cul-de-sac world driven half insane by rot, hate, and juice box schedules.
Thatâ€™s when the mushrooms kicked in.
