RIP: Kirby Puckett

Man, what a way to go out, first Glaucoma kills your Major League Baseball career, and then you're struck down by a fricken heart attack, and all before you're 45!

Rest in Peace, there's always a double header up there!

Send a message via AIM to Grover was a stroke, but it got more serious. They performed surgery on Sunday but he was still in critical condition since they got done. He had a serious weight gain since he left the game..that MIGHT have played a part in it.

He was dogged by bad press after he retired. Dragging women into public bathroom stalls by the hair, etc.

His weight problems didn't start after he retired. He was pudgy when he played. He looked like a bowling ball in center field.

I liked him as a player. He just passed so I'll just say RIP.
