Today’s back page of the New York Daily News demands a snappy comeback from flyover country. I’ve got nothing. You?

  • Heather

    A Twins win.

  • JackU

    EZ-Pass? No Exit Lane.

  • JackU

    Let’s try that again…

    E-Z Pass?

    No.

    Exit Lane.

  • Tyler

    At least our new stadium has a sense of history (Met flagpole, etc)

  • I’m with Heather – there’s no real comeback but a series victory. But if you’re just looking for a good opposing headline, how about this?

    “Twins To Face Old-Timers’ Team In Division Series”

    Sub-head: “In friendly gesture, Minnesota stocks visitor’s clubhouse with metamucil and Werther’s Originals”

    Good News: Twins host Yankees and ALDS

    Bad News: Mauer will rest until ALCS as Twins continue to play scrubs in meaningless games.

    Rest Area Ahead.

    Cried of the Yankees:

    How about: As wild card, Jeters never win. (You can look it up: In the last graph here: http://content.usatoday.com/communities/dailypitch/post/2010/10/why-the-yankees-will-win—and-lose/1)

  • Bob Collins

    Ah, now I’m inspired:

    Same cover with headline:

    Lake WeBeDone

  • Harvey

    Reign expected to End in Time For Twins Series

  • Pat

    You can choose your friends, but the Twins can’t choose who they will lose to.

  • John O.

    I thought Lake WeBeDone was located in Ohio. Near Cleveland. 😀

    //At least our new stadium has a sense of history (Met flagpole, etc)/

    And our new Target Field wasn’t simply a copy of the old stadium.

  • Minn Whaler

    Twinkies never go bad…

    Twinkies shelf life longer than history of baseball

    ohh, whoops, not supposed to call them Twinkies.

    hmmm

    Big apple worms come to little apple only to be thwarted by worm resistant fruit developed near U of MN.

    How about BRONX MERCENARIES PLAN TO BUMP OFF MINNESOTA NICE GUYS

  • V

    Got it. Same cover:

    Bluehairs don’t have home field and never have won as wild card, but they doesn’t stop their yapping …
