We'll let baseball blogger/Uptown lifestyle tweeter Aaron Gleeman explain what the fuss is about:
Twins' marketing department survey asking which car brand is most similar to their brand. Choices are ... optimistic. pic.twitter.com/7YfC6DZVtj-- Aaron Gleeman (@AaronGleeman) September 2, 2014
Olbermann discussed the survey debacle (and dropped Gleeman's name) during his ESPN show last night.
They're headed for fourth straight 90-loss season and asking fans if the brand is "quality and luxury" or "powerful and flashy." TONE. DEAF.-- Aaron Gleeman (@AaronGleeman) September 2, 2014
Here's a transcript of Olbermann's savaging:
All those cars [in the survey] run. Given that the Twins last won the World Series in 1991, last finished above .500 in 2010, and were nearly contracted out of existence in 2002, the correct answer [to] which car brand is most similar to the Twins brand is -- no, not a 1908 Morgan three-wheeler -- the Yugo.It's hard to argue with any of that, but in the interest of being fair and balanced, here's an awesome GIF of Eduardo Escobar busting some moves during last night's (gasp!) Twins win:
Boxy, underpowered, tough to watch, unsuccessful on the road, and not bought by anybody in this country since 1992. The Twins marketing department -- [sarcastically] yeah, the Twins are Lexuses -- today's worst persons in the sports world.
