Hotdishes, conjoined Joe Mauers and lovable Lutherans: Tweeters pick the new Twins mascot

In our inaugural #mp140 post, we asked MinnPost’s Twitter followers for a new mascot to go along with the new Twins ballpark. It became clear that many fans love T.C. Bear, so his job hasn’t been placed in jeopardy by our little contest. MinnPost has selected our favorite tweet, along with five honorable mentions.

Congratulations to our winner, Julie Blaha of Ramsey. Julie wins two tickets to the April 14 game against Toronto.

Winner:
julieblaha My mascot pick is “Runny”. Not so much rounding home, or flowing lakes, but more commemorating MN’s abundant cold and flu season. #mp140


Honorable mentions:

    As communications director of the American Lung Association (and justplainbob), I should have thought of “Runny.” After all, I deal with respiratory disease and flu all the time!

    Congrats, Julie, and thanks, MP, for the honorable mention.
