I hate the Yankees and am not a Knoblauch fan but throwing hotdogs at people is stoopid.

If Puckett was a 100 on my personal fandom scale, Knoblauch was a 99.

I never could dredge up any vitriol against him.

Knoby was one of my favorite players growing up... Disappointed he got traded, especially knowing he asked for it.

I hate the Yankees, they've knocked us out of the playoffs too many times, but I gotta wonder if Yankees fans consider the Twins "rivals"

I was there for the hot dog night. It was a perfect storm for something like that to happen. I was even in the sections that were doing it (though I thought it was pretty ridiculous). Not only was it Dollar a Dog Night, it was also student night. Tickets were like $3-5...so, throw in a plentiful bounty of ammo, the fact that Knoblauch made a not so liked exit to the much hated Yankees, and a ton of blitzed college students....and you have Tom Kelly jogging to the outfield to give everybody the calm down single. I really hated that move by Knoblauch at the time, but even I was fully disgraced by what was happening around me.
