AND WELL SEE YA TOMORROW NIGHT
Kirbys gone. In some ways, he was already gone, gone from the consciousness of todays Twins, gone from the mindscape of Minnesota Nice, but that doesnt make todays news any easier to take. In fact, it just makes it more difficult
As one of the smaller, colder markets in professional sports, Minnesota has enjoyed a disproportionate wealth of superstar talent. Superstars transcend the sports they play, the stats they post, the games and awards they win, because in a few glorious moments, moments that become memories, memories that actually enrich your life, they sear themselves into your heart.
The first time you saw him The first time you saw him climb a wall. 10 for 11. 1987. 1991. Game 6 (on par with any individual performance in any game in any sport ever, EVER). The pitch from Dennis Martinez The sunglasses at the press conference. Cooperstown. Front row at Target Center. Yesterday. Today.
Today Minnesota mourns, along with everyone else who ever saw number 34 play baseball, because to see him play was to love him.
Tomorrow isnt promised to any of us, he told reporters, teammates, and fans when he retired in 1996. But just five years earlier, with one brilliant swing of his bat, Kirby Puckett gave us tomorrow night.
Now, somewhere in the eternal tomorrow, PA Announcer Bob Caseys voice is echoing again
the centerfieldernumberthirtyfour KIRBYYYYYYYYYYYY PUCKETT!
Jack Buck is calling the game, and yes Kirby, well be seeing ya
Calling HECTOR JOHNSON!
Hector wrote us a great email about Golden Gopher football coach Glen Mason on November 23rd, but when we tried to email him back, the address he gave us didnt work.
