It would have been nice if, 25 years after their great seven-game World Series, the Twins and Atlanta had done something this season other than combine for 196 losses this season. But it didn't happen and a wise fan is smart to excise the memories of this season as quickly as possible.
To help with that, it felt like a good time to think back to 25 years ago today, when Kirby Puckett ended Game 6 of the World Series with one of the best-remembered moments in Twins history. Most of us have heard the Jack Buck -- "And we'll see you tomorrow night" call -- more than a few times.
Well, here's the home run described by Vin Scully, the Dodgers legend who retired at the end of this season after a career of calling major league games that began in 1950.

And, as a bonus, here's the catch Puckett made on Ron Gant earlier in the game that did a pretty good job of setting up the 11th-inning home run.
Yeah, it would be nice for Twins fans to have some fresher championship fodder. It's OK to hope that seeing these won't have to suffice for the next quarter century.
