Sports Illustrated's cover story this week is on Kirby Puckett and his fall from glory. I'd imagine it mostly details his current situation with the upcoming sexual misconduct trial and his other actions off the field. As with many people from Minnesota, Kirby was one of my favorite players growing up, but he's proven himself to be nothing more than common trash. It should be interesting to read if it includes anything else that wasn't publicly known in the Twin Cities.

Headline: SI Tells Puckett to Suck It



The brighter the photo, the darker the negative.

Too bad they didnít print this story until after he got voted into the Hall of Fame. No way he deserves it more than Don Mattingly.

Un-freaking believable.
A truly depressing story.

we put our faith in those that are mere mortals - no different from you and me then scoff at them and tear down the tributes to which we have made for them



If someone gets urinated upon do they get pissed off or pissed on?

Somewhat, but what did the average fan really ask of Puckett? That he act with a little class, be a contributing member of society, that he NOT sexually assault women?

I would hope that his actions would show that Puckett is INDEED different than most of us in that he is more and more being shown as a low life useless bastard.

that was my pt. exactly, that he was nothing special as a person but rather just a good ballplayer.

I contend the opposite, that he was held up so high because of his percieved "Nice Guy" image. Without that, he was just another good ballplayer.

I thought that the tone of the actual indictment (hosted.ap.org) revolved more about what's considered "knowingly"...
