At the risk of ruining a perfectly cromulent <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/tag/the-dugout">Dugout</a>, I wanted to share the latest commercial from Explore Minnesota, a group hoping to embiggen the state's tourism.

"For the second consecutive year, Minnesota Twins perennial All-Star, Joe Mauer is the cover athlete for MLB® 11 The Show, available exclusively for PlayStation®. To commemorate this achievement, Nike will release the Nike Huarache TR Low “The Show”. This very limited trainer will be released on April 9th at Nike Mall of America, EastBay and select Minnesota and Chicagoland retailers. "The Huarache TR Low “The Show” retails for $110 and is a baseball lover and gamers' dream. Baseball inspired stitching around the toe emulates that of laces on a ball. The PlayStation logo is prominently displayed on the shoe’s outer tongue. The game’s cover artwork, including the image of Mauer and the MLB® The Show classic logo, embellish the inner sock liners of both the left and right shoe respectively. The right shoe’s inner tongue includes Mauer’s iconic ‘7M’ logo. "While style certainly catches the eye, the Nike Huarache Low silhouette is a premier training shoe designed for maximum support and traction. Mauer’s signature shoe is designed to fit like a glove for a custom feel to help you perform like a pro." Set to launch April 9th at <a href="http://www.nikestore.com">NikeStore.com</a> and select retailers.
Twins catcher Joe Mauer, obviously tired of all the effort it takes to select a groupie from the hotel lobby (and apparently split from 2005 Miss USA <a href="http://www.joemauer.info/2006/09/joe-mauers-girlfriend/" target="_blank">Chelsea Cooley</a>), has turned over woman-finding duties to Extra TV.
It looks like the Twins are probably going to the playoffs this year, and it will be largely in part to MVP candidates/youngsters Justin Morneau and Joe Mauer.
