Good tribute to Killebrew...also, one of the origins of calling Washington "Warsh"?

Killebrew was still a boy, just 17, when he signed with the Senators as a $30,000 bonus baby. In 1961, he moved with the team to Minnesota, to Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, where I grew up. By the time I was attending games at Met Stadium, Killebrew had retired, and so I remember him as an occasional Twins broadcaster, face framed by a fringe of white. I remember his soft voice, pronouncing the surname of Twins infielder Ron Washington as "Warshington." I know that when RW started here a few years ago.. posers on the DMN site sometimes called him "Warsh" and moderators derided that as derogatory...
