For some reason this list of favorite cheers for the Twin Cities Marathon made me laugh.

From now on, whenever I see one of you, I'm going to yell "Welcome to Saint Paul! (when appropriate)"

If there's anything we hate here in Saint Paul, it's welcoming people when it is NOT APPROPRIATE

@hfrazey I only welcome people to Saint Paul when I’m in Wisconsin.

@Chelseaknits @hfrazey
I'm surprised "woo" isn't there. It's a way to make some noise, an expression of how everyone is doing tonight, a phrase to show love for whatever is happening, a director of some well-received films...

@hfrazey Now my brain won’t stop offering me examples of inappropriate welcoming occasions.
