    Re: Kirby Puckett statue

    Based on the picture they probably used, I think the statue looks like the man in the picture. Kirby's facial expression in the picture doesn't look like a normal recognized Kirby face.

    Re: Kirby Puckett statue

    I'm of the opinion most bronze statues tend not to look like who it's intending to depict...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    The inscription says, "Just Puckett."

    I'm just glad they didn't use a post MLB pose or picture. I saw him at a T-Wolves game in 97 or 98 and was shocked!

    Re: Kirby Puckett statue

    That is one of the worst statues I have ever seen. Yes, bronze statues are still supposed to look like who they are depicting.

    I think it actually looks a bit like a yelling Ben Vereen.

    Those are the operative words. They rarely ever do...

    You aren't going to like it unless it's by this guy, and he's been dead a while...
