Seems like so long ago.....partly because it was 22 years ago, but also because the shambles my beloved Twins franchise is in right now.
But I remember it like it was yesterday. Sitting up late on a school night, with my Mom, watching Kirby Puckett made Jack Buck utter, "....and we'll see you.....tomorrow night" in Game 6. Then Gene Larkin popped a fly ball to the wall in the bottom of the 10th inning of Game 7 to win it, after Jack Morris absolutely shut down the Atlanta Braves. I think I almost woke my brother, I was so excited.
Here....relive it. So cool. Those were good times.
And it was around this day in 1987, that the Twins beat the Cardinals in 7 games to clinch the first. I think I actually enjoyed the '87 win a bit more, but I couldn't find any good video for that to post. UNLESS, you care to watch the WHOLE game......you don't really wanna work do ya?
