Opening Day

My beloved Minnesota Twins are opening the 2012 season today.  It was a terrible season last year, and it may not be realistic to hope for a World Series championship this year either. 

But heck, I can always escape's a nifty bit of fantasy.

This marvelous work captures two of my and dogs behaving like people.  It is entitled "One to tie and two to win". 

Does the style look just a little familiar?  Well, it should, as it is a lesser known work of a genius named Cassius Marcellus Coolidge.  For an in depth exploration of the man whose "Dogs Playing Poker" paintings grace many a basement rec room, I recommend:

Dogs Playing Poker!

And back in the real world....Play Ball!
