I think we all agree with almost everything that Kent Hrbek has ever done and said pertaining to anything about baseball and air conditioning units. I think we can all agree with Hrbek’s response to Al Michael’s claim that the Twins piped in noise during the 1987 World Series.
For a little background, the story of piping in noise comes about after the Atlanta Falcons admitted to piping in noise in the 2013 and 2014 seasons. The Falcons will be punished for this.
After that story, someone brought it up to Al Michaels of NBC Sports and he said he believed the Twins were bringing in the noise.
The first comment came from Twins President Dave St. Peter via Twitter:
Of course, when you ask for Hrbek’s opinion, he’ll give it to you.
Let’s just face the fact that debating sports from 1987 is trivial, but acceptable. Debating anything off the field pertaining to that sporting event from almost 30 years ago is just weird. It’s really not necessary.
I must say that I am a pretty big Al Michaels fan. I simply find his voice to be one of the coolest in sports, so if he was saying this about any other team, I’d probably agree. But a Twins fan always needs to stick with Kent Hrbek.
