Twins Fans Come Up with Ingenious Solution to Missing Letter in their Human Body Paint Sign

twins fans use cardboard stand-in for missing w buddy

Getting a group of buddies together for a ballgame and painting letters on your shirtless chests that spells out a message is a timeless sports tradition. It doesn’t take quite as much commitment and effort as shaving a message into your chest hair, but it still takes some coordination and a good-sized serving of liquid courage.

So what do you do when you’ve got a group of guys together and are ready to head on down to the stadium, but one of the dudes is no-show?

Well, a group of Minnesota Twins fans were faced with just such a dilemma last night in Kansas City. They intended to spell T-W-I-N-S out on their chests, which of course requires five people. But for whatever reason—maybe the fifth dude’s wife went into labor, or maybe they never even had a fifth dude—only four of them were in attendance. So they improvised thusly:

Yep, a cardboard cutout of their missing buddy—a brilliant solution. He even has plaid shorts like three of the other dudes, adding a generous dose of realism.

I think I speak for sports dudes everywhere when I say well done, gentlemen.
