Puckett thoughts

It is always interesting to see how the media treats a fallen hero. You can go on the internet and watch the articles come down the pike as they are published. Usually, they are just a rehash of the same Associated Press article. Why I get into monitoring these things is anybody's guess.

Blyleven quote

Since word of the death of Kirby Puckett's death came out a little over an hour ago, the internet has been abuzz. You can check out all the weblogs by typing in Puckett's name on Technorati, a website which tracks the content of weblogs within minutes after it is posted.

One quote I hadn't heard: apparently, Bert Blyleven, great pitcher and current Twins TV commentator, once gushed during a broadcast: "If you don't love Kirby Puckett, you don't love life." Well said.
