Quote of the week

Sunday is Father’s Day, at least it is here in North America. Growing up in Minnesota as I did, one of my favorite players with the Twins baseball team was Harmon Killebrew. Here’s a quote from him that fits this weekend to a “t.”

My father used to play with my brother and me the yard. Mother would come out and say, “You’re tearing up the grass.” “We’re not raising grass,” Dad would reply. “We’re raising boys.”

— Harmon Killebrew


  1. I have a lot of good memories playing baseball in the backyard with my boys Bob. How about you?

    My oldest son, Justin, got a Minnesota Twins cap for his birthday just last weekend. Here in British Columbia, we are very proud of another Justin – Morneau on the Twins, one of baseball’s best players right now!

    I’ve always loved playing ball in the backyard with my boys, too.

  4. Great quote. I’ll bet the Killebrews never opened a furniture store, either.
