I posted the blog entry "Forget the Fans" on the Twins chat site and had some interesting responses. Thanks for the support to those who responded.

Now that’s a GREAT idea! What could be more American than circulating and submitting a petition in an attempt to get "America’s Game" put on the airwaves which, according to the FCC, belong to the people.
Therefore, below is the petition which I plan to submit to as many western Wisconsin radio stations that I can find as well as the Twins organization. If you feel moved to become part of this petition, simply reply by clicking on "comments" where you can add your comments. It would be especially helpful for Wisconsin fans to enter their community.
To Whom it May Concern,
Western Wisconsin Twins fan are quite disappointed that it has become so much more difficult to follow their favorite baseball team. The change of Twins Radio Network flagships from WCCO to KSTP has made it virtually impossible to listen to the Twins over the air in western Wisconsin. We feel like we have been left out. Gameday Audio and satellite radio are not acceptable alternatives as they do not allow most people to be able to listen through their typical household radios and/or car radios like they could in the "good old days." We feel that this is a case of technology actually being a step backwards.
