Good ol' days. I remember the parade and the explosion of twins mania across the state. It was amazing.
Kirby was a teat grabber. His heart exploded.

His heart was working just fine. He was blind in one eye and his head exploded.

I once rode in an elevator with Kirby and Tonya. As we were leaving, he held the door open for us. I thanked him and he said, "No problem, man". I did not approach him or ask for his autograph. A co-worker who was with me was oblivious. After we got to our office, I broke out in laughter and she asked what was so funny.

Ok, here's the rest of the story. My co-worker was chatting at me in the elevator. Kirby Puckett gets on. I elbow her and nod over to Puck. She looks at me and says "What?". I nod again to Puck. She again says, "What"? I say never mind. When we get into our office I burst into laughter because we just rode in the elevator with Kirby Puckett (this was '96 around the time he retired) and she was oblivious. He was still the most revered professional athlete in Minnesota at the time and she had no clue. It was funny.

My friend lived around Brooklyn park and was jogging when Kirby Puckett slowed Down to avoid splashing him with slush. Classy guy.
Yes. The woman he attacked in the bathroom would agree. Classy guy.
