    Book: "To be a Viking" coming soon

    Charley Walters at www.pioneerpress.com has noted that

    Former Vikings linebacker Matt Blair is working on a book, "To be a Viking," a recollection by him and teammates of their playing days in Minnesota.

    I cannot wait till this comes out I think it will be a great read.

    Matt Blair was awesome, he was probably before your time so you may not recall him. In fact he may be among the best 2 or 3 linebackers to ever play for the Vikings.

    We'll mark that comment down to reasons of youth :grin: Matt Blair was a great player and could show some of the LBs today how to play the game. He played for 11 years and hold the record for the number of punt/FG blocks.

    I'll look forward to that book coming out for sure

    Anybody know of any other good Viking books?

    I saw one awhile back; cannot remember the name of it though.
