Light Someone's Shoelaces on Fire...

... because Bert Blyleven is a 2011 MLB Hall of Fame inductee!!

Yes, the Master of the Hot Foot (GREAT instructional video starring Bert himself) was finally elected to MLB's HOF today, receiving 79.7% of the vote. He will be inducted along with Roberto Alomar.

Per Minnesota Twins on Facebook, here is a current picture of Target Field's scoreboard:

Who wants to bet the new bronze statute at Target Field of an unknown player will be Bert Blyleven? The three current players with bronze statutes at Target Field are the Twins' Hall of Famers--Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew, and Kirby Puckett.

In honor of Bert's accomplishments, I provide the following videos for your enjoyment.

Lest we forget Bert's distinguished broadcasting career:

Congratulations Bert!!
