    Happy birthday Don Henley! And enjoy your retirement years¹!
    ¹At least, that's what Zeke hopes ... :D

    You know what Zeke (but maybe not Forever_Town ;) ) would love on Don Henley's birthday?

    To picture himself in Stevie Nicks' role in the Leather & Lace duet. Nothing could be more enticing to Zeke that to be on the receiving end of Henley's tender mercies.

    "You in the moonlight
    With your sleepy eyes
    Could you ever love a man like me?
    And you were right
    When I walked into your house
    I knew I'd never want to leave
    Sometimes I'm a strong man
    Sometimes cold and scared
    And sometimes I cry
    But that time I saw you
    I knew with you to light my nights
    Somehow I'd get by
    First time I saw you
    I knew with you to light my nights
    Somehow I would get by

    (Zeke joins in)

    Lovers forever... face to face
    My city or mountains
    Stay with me stay
    I need you to love me
    I need you today
    Give to me your leather ...
    Take from me ... my lace."

    So touching. :'(

    More teasing about this, and this will be the End of Zeke's Innocence.

    This is the last worthless evening that he'll have to spend.

    HED: Mauer, Twins enjoy Eagles' tunes while visiting 'Hotel California'

    OAKLAND (AP) -- Twins all-star catcher Joe Mauer revealed that after a tough day at the ballpark, there's nothing he likes better than to chill to the sounds of his favorite band, the Eagles.

    "The Don Henley ballads really help me cool down," Mauer said after the Twins suffered a 16-1 setback in Oakland on Wednesday. "You know, there's nothing like grooving to the laid-back sound of 'Desperado' or 'Best of My Love.'"

    Minnesota slugger Justin Morneau, however, said he is partial to Glenn Frey's numbers.

    No, it's not — the Twins have 67 games left.

    May his retired years be filled with bubble-headed bleach blondes.
