    So is Blair gonna break out the rubber stamp at book signings too!!! LOL
    LOL, I wouldn't doubt it. I would like to ask him if he remembers doing that, because I sure do. My guess is that he still packs the same stamp around and is looking for another opportunity to use it. What has he been up to the last few decades anyway? Does anyone know?

    Re: Book: "To be a Viking" coming soon

    He's a big collector of classic cars. I used to see him occasionally when I'd drive around the south side of the Twin Cities area. I'd always honk and wave..., he would always smile and wave back. He does a lot for charity, and has a nice website, which says he likes to hear from fans.

    http://www.mattblair.com

    His website says a little bit about him:

    Matt Blair, #59, former Minnesota Vikings All-Pro Linebacker was a fixture at Outside Linebacker for more than a decade. Playing for 12 years (from 1974 to 1986) with the Vikes, he appeared in two Super Bowls and three NFC Conference Championship Games.

    Being named to the All Rookie Team, NFC All Conference Teams, and All Pro Teams and to six consecutive Pro Bowls, and the 1981 NFC Linebacker MVP and the Vikings Defensive Captain, Matt's a professional no one will soon forget. Especially if they ever took a hit from him or even watched him deliver a hit or block a kick.

    In 2003 and 2004, Matt was named to the preliminary ballot for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. And we hope the future gets him further into the selection process, eventually in the door.

    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

    Matt Blair was no Foreman, or Cris Carter....I wish Cris Carter would write a book about being a Viking.....Matt Blair was good, but it would be better if it was by a hall of famer or someone who will go down in history as a great player 30, 40 years from now....thats all I was saying.......I saw Blair play, he made a few Pro Bowls...like 6 or 7 or something, right.....I saw the end of his career...like 82 to 85....I guess he wasn't as bad as I made it sound....he was actually pretty great....but I'd rather hear from a hall of famer...not to take anything away from Blair.....

    Hall of Famer or not, Blair was a great player and should not affect whether or not the book is good or bad. Bo Jackson wrote on heck of a book!

    I have an old Tarkenton book and Kassulke too. Maybe I'll put them on ebay.LOL I also have the Golden Memories book. I wish Jim Marshall would write a book. That guy is movie material. Burning money to start a fire, wrong way run, played better when sick, cancer survivor. etc. I know theres more stories, but get think, need coffee.
