2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesI remember really enjoying watching that '87 series with a friend from South Dakota who's a fire-breathing Twins fan (as such things go). I also remember the announcers being almost stunned to learn that there were good players on the Twins not named Viola and Blyleven... and then mistaking Dan Gladden for one. (Christina Kahrl)
