Great picture! That is a man right there! Lol
Seriously, TK is often seen as deadpan and dry. And there is no question TK has a very dry wit and sense of humor about him. But this photo, I think, shows the mind of guy players and close associates know and love. A guy who is anything but flamboyant, but also not afraid to have a little fun.
Whether it's time for Gardy to go or not is not a point I wish it discuss at the moment. I love Gardy as a good guy and a good baseball man. And I've always loved TK the same way. I think we've been lucky to have both men represent our team and the Twins Way the past 27. That's right...27 years these two men have lead our favorite ML team through thick and thin...and let's be honest here...it's been mostly thick.
I love that TK still scouts for us. I love that he remains involved in ST along with other past greats. I hope that like TK, when his time comes to go, Gardy will stay involved as a scout, mentor, or occassional broadcaster.
Happy Birthday TK, and thank you for all you've done for our Twins!
