Morning Headlines: A's 14, Twins 13
Most mornings, we'll lead off the day with some AM headlines -- but not your traditional ones. Rather we'll focus on one game or story and write headlines that are completely inconsequential and insignificant to the outcome of the game. We'll give a few examples and then you'll play in the comments. Best headline (read: the one that makes us laugh the hardest) will get a shoutout in this space the next day. We'll provide the box score for the game as that can lend itself to plenty of content. Let's have some fun. The more insignificant, the better!
WOW! Talk about an Ikea Game! The Twins blew a freakin' 10-run lead by giving up seven in the 7th! Holy shit! Meanwhile, it took a blown call on a slide at the plate in the 9th for the A's to avoid a 14-14 tie. ROLLERCOASTER! Someone is burning down that fucking mall right now. And if we were Twins fans, we'd bring the gasoline.
