Thanks for being the reason I love the Twins.
Thanks for showing a 13 year old what true sportsmanship is.
Thanks for making every game exciting. Even if the Twins were losing, there was still a chance if Kirby was going to be batting.
Thanks for giving me a number to put on the back of my soccer jersey.
Thanks for the smiles.
Thanks for making that catch.
Thanks for hitting that homerun.
As a grown-up I don't understand the stories I heard about you after the Twins. I don't know if you were unfairly accused, or if you just didn't know how to handle your fame. I choose to remember the good things you did and how you positively influenced my life. As a 13 year old you and the Twins provided one of the most exciting things I could have imagined. You provided hours of positive entertainment.
Thanks for the memories.
