Curt Schilling questions character of Kirby Puckett in Hall of Fame rant Kirby Puckett has had his dirty laundry aired in public (at least in the media) on multiple occasions, perhaps most notably in this 2003 Sports Illustrated piece, three years before his early death.
It is a part of the Puckett story that most Twins fans either honestly don’t know about or choose to forget about — or, at the most, gloss over when thinking about the baseball hero.
The less-than-perfect side of Puckett the human, in fact, gets buried so deep that it becomes somewhat shocking when someone brings up his name in a negative way. More

Martin Jones makes his Sharks’ home debut Saturday in front of a lot of “new” friends three nights after playing his first game for San Jose against two “old” friends.
The 25-year-old offseason acquisition stopped the final 19 Los Angeles shots after surrendering a goal on the Kings' first during San Jose’s 5-1 win at Staples Center on Wednesday.
Jones cemented the Sharks’ longtime interest in him with his work as the backup to Kings All-Star starter Jonathan Quick.
Jones made a rookie splash in 2013-14 with a 1.81 goals-against average and .934 save percentage during 19 games that included four shutouts.
Retired since 2007, Friesen scored 149 goals during 512 games over seven seasons with the Sharks, who chose him 11th overall in 1994.
With so much focus on Connor McDavid (Oilers) and Jack Eichel (Sabres) making their NHL debuts Thursday, it’s easy to overlook the top performance of the night by none other than Antti Niemi.
The ex-Sharks goalie made 37 saves to shut out visiting Pittsburgh in his first game with Dallas, and he contributed assists on each of the first two Stars’ goals.
The Wild ruined the Avalanche’s home opener Thursday by scoring four unanswered goals for a 5-4 win.
The Avs were darlings of the NHL two years ago, then took a step back in missing the playoffs last season.
New York's Empire State Building was lit up in blue and orange Thursday in advance of the Islanders’ first game Friday in Brooklyn after playing their first 43 years on Long Island.
Old foes U. S., Mexico meet once again on soccer pitch
Clint Dempsey has been immersed in the U. S. soccer rivalry with Mexico pretty much from the moment he understood what the international game means to both nations.
The slumping Americans face Mexico on Saturday at the sold-out Rose Bowl in a one-game playoff for a spot in the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia, a prelude to the 2018 World Cup.
While Mexico had a raucous summer that included its Gold Cup triumph and the firing of coach Miguel Herrera, the U.
The Detroit Lions have ruled out running back Joique Bell, tight end Eric Ebron and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata for their game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Bell (ankle), Ebron (knee) and Ngata (calf) did not practice on Friday.
Safety James Ihedigbo (quad) and offensive guard Larry Warford (ankle) were limited in practice and are questionable Sunday when the winless Lions host the NFC West-leading Cardinals.
Linebacker DeAndre Levy is expected to play for the first time this season after being out with a hip injury and tight end Brandon Pettigrew is probable to play after missing three games with an injured hamstring.
