Default Re: Who would you like to sit next to?

Former Minnesota Twins great and Baseball Hall of Famer, Harmon Killebrew. He was my boyhood idle and others I have spoke with that know him say he is a great conversationalist.

I was lucky enough to sit across from another Twins Hall of Famer,Kirby Puckett, on a return from Fort Lauderdale. It was interesting to know that the most enjoyable memories he had in baseball were the first time he put on a big league uniform and that you didn't have to carry your own bags when you traveled. His worst memory was waking up one morning with a blind spot in his eye. It was the start of the glaucoma that ended his career.

Take care,
