Thread: Kent Hrbek statue

    Kent Hrbek statue

    Hi
    I'm currently putting together a website cataloging all of the USA’s baseball statues - www.sportingstatues.com - as such I was wondering if anyone out there could let me know what the plaque inscription on Kent Hrbek's recent statue says - I can't find a photo of the plaque anywhere. Answers to c.b.stride(at)sheffield.ac.uk please :-)
    cheers

    I'll try to get out there tomorrow. I'm headed out to the 'burbs in a few minutes or I'd do it right now. (I live about 5 blocks from the stadium.)

    It says:

    "Yeah, I'll have a number three with cheese, onion rings, and a chocolate shake. Wait, what? What's this for again?"
    -Kent Hrbek


    Okay, so I haven't made it out there yet. Sorry, I've been busy.

    I don't know... is the number 3 the double? Because he definitely ordered the double.

    I think it says:

    Kent Hrbek: This Twins great is known for fishing, eating, hunting, and the occasional baseball game. He is currently believed to be a masked wrestler in Japan using the name 'Tyrannosaurus Rex'.

    I finally made it out there. I took a picture that I can post later when I'm not on my phone, but the plaque reads:

    "

    Kent Hrbek
    Minnesota Twins
    1981 - 1994

    Kent Hrbek to his wife Jeanie Hrbek,
    before the start of the 1987 playoffs

    "I don't want to win the World Series
    for me, but for all of the fans
    of Twins baseball."

    "

    Thanks for the effort.

    Your suggestion would have fit Hrbek much better.

    Hrbek is proof positive that Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid is absolutely the way to go through life.

    If you are going make sporting statues I hope you are going to include something about Kirby Puckett's statue. Or better known as Tonya's revenge. The Star Tribune gossip columnist C.J. wrote about this because the statue doesn't look anything like Kirby and is his ex-wife's way of getting back for his sexual harassment business. The Twins wanted it too like as much as him and let Tonya have the final say. Personally he looks like fat chipmunk.

    Also I hope you are going to talk about the Michael Jackson statue at Fulham's Craven Cottage. If you do not know what I am talking about it is worth a Google.
