For a guy who was as wide as he was tall, he could sure play some ball.

Dude talks like a honky.

Kirby's got nothing on Tony Gwynn in this department.

Wouldn't it suck if Bruno Kirby had a stroke too? That guy is SO funny. "City Slickers" should have won Best Picture. "Crash" can suck Bruno Kirby's balls.

Ever wonder why such a "healthy" professional athlete would have such health problems? Sounds fishy. Don't most of them have Trainers and Chefs? Strick diets? Curfews? How does such a health conscious being end up having a stoke or heart attach? Hmmm?

We'll his health problems are over now. So "healthy" living includes having a mistress for 18 years and groping women in the bathroom. I have a feeling he wasn't as clean as you think....

That said, I was always a fan of his myself. He was a great player and hustled his ass off.

I always liked him. He was in the same school of ball-player as Ozzie Smith.

damn dude, damn. I think I had his rookie card. That sucks.

Now Prince and Morris Day are the only remaining black Minnesotans.

He was fat as fuck. He also got beaned in the eye with a ball, went blind in that eye, and had to retire. I'm sure that fucked his brain up and might have been the cause of the stroke. Not a doctor, but some people have been suggesting this.

I'm also assuming that going blind in one eye and retiring didn't exactly motivate him to stay on any kind of regular exercise/diet program.

anybody 'member when kirby made that bare handed catch (no glove) in left field? that guy was fuckin awesome.
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 9:38 pm
 
He's dead.
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 10:07 pm
 
yeah, yesterday... scroll up.
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 11:44 pm
 
He was a great player, and also one of the more colorful players off the field as well. Not that I give a rip about his cheating, death threating, and bitch-slapping, but all the lionizing of him being a class act is freaking hilarious.

He played with grit and intensity, and that's what he should be remembered for. RIP.

Did Kirby make a bare handed catch, too? I remember seeing Kevin Mitchell make one in left field. Kirby played mostly center field.
