BASEBALL: Say it ain't so, Kirby

It's hard to imagine a more disheartening story than this: Kirby Puckett charged with sexual assault. Puckett is a guy who can truly and fairly be said to have been universally admired in his playing days: by teammates, opponents, management, media, and fans alike; by white and black alike; for his childlike enthusiasm, but also for the more manly virtues of endurance, durability, work ethic, and cool under fire. Along with the charges by his ex-wife, the picture we are given is of a man whose ever-friendly smile and gentlemanly good nature have given way to a far darker side with the opposite sex. Say it ain't so, Kirby. Say it ain't so.
