      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

In light of the Minnesota Twins beating behinds all over
the central division of Major League Baseball, we at
Daybreak have turned an eye towards the sports page.
While we do not condone capitalist anything, we figure,
what the hell, in this case we're rootin' for the Twins to
go to the "World Series".

Two words, sports riots.

"World Series," win or lose will bring chaos to downtown Minneapolis.
The sort of chaos we wish Mayday could be. The sort of chaos we
can bring baseball bats to and not get singled out and arrested
right away. The way we figure it, if we cause more damage to
downtown than the Twins' payroll of $40 mil then anarchy
wins. A strong anarchist presence (with Homer hankies
over our faces) could steer mob mentality to lay waste
to all corporate interests in the downtown area.

Regrettably, most of us missed the hockey riots in
Dinkytown last winter, a mistake that will not happen
again, rest assured.

OK, so some would argue that sports riots are anything
but anarchist, that it's mere stupidity or drunkenness.
Well, they may be right. But we would argue that being
on the receiving end of police brutality radicalizes lots
of folks, especially if we make an anarchist presence
known. Besides, lighten up, it'll be fun. The kids
arrested for the street fighting in Dinkytown were
recently sentenced to COMMUNITY SERVICE!
Need we say more?

So root for the home team, soak yr homer hanky in apple cider vinegar, grab yr batting helmet and the bat that Kirby signed and we'll hopefully see ya this fall by the
