"Killer" Father's Day Quote

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there. One of the better quotes I've heard over the years concerning boys and their dads come from local legend Harmon "Killer" Killebrew. “My father used to play with my brother and me in 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.” Words of wisdom, indeed!

One of my most treasured memorabilia pieces is an autographed ball that "Killer" personalized for me. I used to work with his sister-in-law, and she was kind enough to get a ball signed for me.
