Fuck You Minnesota! The Twins unveil a Hrbek-Gant bobblehead



It's been 20 years now but I still remember this absolute bullshit play from the 1991 World Series. Minnesota Twin's first baseman Kent Hrbek pulled the ultimate dick move and literally carried Atlanta Braves outfielder Ron Gant off the bag at first base like he was Ric Flair. It was a garbage play and of course with the Braves luck the umpire called out Gant. Fucking shit it still pisses me off. Not as bad as the Jeffrey Mayer call but it's a close second. Well just to prove how big of a dick the whole state of Minnesota is the Twins are coming out with the Hrbek-Gant bobblehead giveaway this season to commerate it. I'm not even shittin ya. A bobblehead to display a play which cheated their way to a 4-3 series win. Fuck you Minnesota! Fuck you!

By the way the bobblehead sucks. Hrbek isn't nearly fat enough and there is no way Roberto Kelly was pulled off the bag. Oh that's suppose to be Ron Gant? Could have fooled me assholes!

Look at a picture Trixie; that's exactly how fat Hrbek was in 91. You know how to win a World Series? DON'T GET SHUTOUT IN GAME 7! Bitch.

Wow you sure have an extensive vocabulary! Let's not forget the other gem of base running that the Braves displayed in that series when MN faked a throw to 2nd and the Braves' runner slowed up costing them a run.

Yea, that pretty much sums the whole thing up except for a couple of things. Since it worked it can't possibly be a dick move and even if Gant had been called safe Twins still win the series.

Hey it's been 20 years go have a beer and get over it! By the way, Gant pushed Hrbek off the bag, got tagged and was out. Umpire made the right call, simple as that. Great bobblehead, I think I'll get one myself.
