Way to go, Big Hurt!

It still hurts to see Frank Thomas in any other uniform other than that of the Chicago White Sox, whom he left after the 2005 World Series Championship season.
However, today, to use a Bill Simmons line, it got a little dusty in here when I read that the Big Hurt had hit his 500th career home run, capping a Hall of Fame-bound career in that most appropriate of places, the Metrodome, against the Twins, against whom he has hit 50 of his 500 blasts.
I watched Frank is his rookie year and knew he would be a star, and he has been all that and more. Bravo, Big Hurt, we are all proud of you!
