Today's Sports Clip: Twins players read cheesy pickup lines


You may have already found the perfect Valentine's Day gift for your significant other, but have you come up with the right thing to say when you deliver the gift?

Don't worry, the Minnesota Twins are here to help. Starting pitchers Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes, infielder Brian Dozier, closer Glen Perkins and manager Ron Gardenhire reading cheesy pickup lines.

Nolasco: "You're name must be Candy, because you look so sweet."

Perkins: "I wish I was cross-eyed so I could see you twice."

Hughes: "If you were a booger, I would pick you first."

Dozier: "Are you a parking ticket? Because you've got fine lookin' all over you."

Gardenhire: "If you were words on a page, you'd be fine print."
