Groundbreaking, Cont'd

It really was always all about the beer with Kent Hrbek. From Scott Miller's Sportsline column, on the Twins stadium groundbreaking:

So after Twins legend Kent Hrbek steps up to speak during the ceremony, telling everyone he can't wait to explain to his daughter that catcher Joe Mauer actually lost the ball in the sun and not in the dingy Metrodome roof, he says, "I came for the beer."

Then someone hands him a bottle of Bud Lite. So Herbie wheels around, obtains the approval of owner Carl Pohlad, cracks it open and takes a swig. "That's the first of many here at the ol' ballpark," he says.

Can't wait for my first.

Yeah, but Bud Light? You may as well pee in your own mouth.

wouldn't Leinie be a more appropriate beer for the Twins park groundbreaking?

Should have been a Grain Belt.
