period birds?! now you're just makin' stuff up. and i didn't wait to post, he just put this up yesterday. we'll see how the year goes. at least we don't have a nickname like "twinkies". baseball might as well have been invented here. cardinal baseball is as american as apple pie, and the only nicknames we have are cool like "cards" or "red birds"... something like 'twinks' would never fly here. this is 'merica!! i anxiously await your inevitable rebuttal, and scandinavian traditions like ice fishing, though commendable for its make-the-best-of-it attitude, will not fly on this one
