From the tortured ledes department: TheStreet.com says the Twins may have been swept by the Yankees, but Minnesotans should look on the bright side because our hometown U.S. Bancorp is having a great year, too.
So don’t retire those Homer Hankies just yet. You’ll want to stand up and wave ’em when you read that U.S. Bank is the only one among the 10 largest banks to post a profit in every quarter for the year that ended June 30.
Uh, no. Good for them, and thanks for trying to cheer us up, TheStreet.com, but I don’t see how that’s any consolation to Twins fans. Unless U.S. Bank plans to donate some of those profits to a sign-Mauer-to-the-Twins-for-life fund.
