Kirby Puckett, a two-time World Champion ('87 and '91), 10 time All-star, and first ballot Hall-0f-Famer with the Minnesota Twins, passed away yesterday after suffering a massive stroke. He was only 45. There are certainly many dudes my age who remember Puckett well. He was in his prime when I was in my formative years (i.e. before Internet porn), and along with other all-stars of his generation like Dale Murhpy, Jose Canseco, Dwight Gooden, Andre Dawson, and Barry Larkin, to name a few, was undoubtedly idolized by many. According to some, however, Puckett's sterling reputation may be a farce. My questions to you all are 2: how will history remember Kirby Puckett? Will his exploits on the field in life be diminished in death by revelations of previously undisclosed problems? And second, what other professional athletes have had (or currently have) a favorable public image but beneath the facade may be complete douche bags?
