Nick Punto Loves Jim Thome

I love Jimbo

Yesterday the Minnesota sports scene was dominated by old guys.  The Vikings had Brett Favre back in Winter Park and Jim Thome beat his former team with a bomb that left the park.  Thome was of course mobbed by his teammates as he crossed home plate and the mob moved towards the Twins dugout.  The Twins broadcast had a great closeup shot of the mob and in the background you can hear someone yelling “I LOVE YOU”.  I initially thought it was Matt Capps or John Rauch screaming that since Thome covered their butts.  Turns out it was Nick Punto screaming his love for Jim Thome.  Click Punto Loves JIMBO. for the audio.
