It's Been a Long-Ass Week, Guys, So Here's a Picture of Kirby Puckett and a Quote from Junior Ortiz

Kirby. - Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

You deserve something nice.

You're probably watching the news and manically refreshing Twitter right now. I know I am. Between Boston and Texas and ricin and earthquakes and way too much goddamn snow, I've had my fill of this week. So have you. So has the Onion.

So: I've posted a nice picture of human fire hydrant Kirby Puckett. God, he was something. I'm also providing a link to Patrick Reusse's column from Tom Kelly's office after Game 7 of the 1991 World Series. My favorite passage:

There was a knock on the door and the bearded, Latin mug of Adalberto Ortiz Jr. appeared. "Here or here?" he asked the manager, pointing at the ring fingers on his left and right hands.

"That's up to you, Junior," Kelly said.

"I'll be at the parade Tuesday, but I have to go back to Puerto Rico on Tuesday," Junior said. "I won't be able to go to the White House. I don't care. I see that guy (George Bush) on TV all the time. Who needs him?

"All I want is (ring size) 9 1/2, please. That's all . . . 9 1/2, please."

A picture of Kirby and a quote from Junior Ortiz. That'll do. See you back here later with the lineups for tonight's game.
