Since I hate this whole anonymous blogger thing, I am going to step out from behind the “Jonas” shield I have been using for more than three years now. My name is Eric Olson and I live, work, and attend law school in Washington, DC and am a Midwest transplant. I brought with me from Minnesota a love for open spaces, Swedish food, and the Minnesota Twins, all things that are extremely scarce out here. The Twins have morphed from a hobby to an obsession, and they have become my primary release from law school’s six to seven hours of homework a night. The one problem: no one out here cares about the Twins, much less about what I think about them, which is a rather gross turn of events.
Therein lies the purpose of this blog: to get my thoughts on the Twins out there in a more complete and polished form than is possible on comments pages (especially at the Strib Blogs, which make me want to vomit sometimes). I welcome disagreement and want a discussion, so get out here and comment.
