    BUD GRANT FOR GM!

    Very Interesting to see that Bud Grant was involved in the interview process with Brad Childress. I can only wonder if Bud Grant has been considered for the GM position (that really is a GM position, but it's not called a GM position). I don't know if he's sick of fishing yet, but wow what a great opportunity for us if he'd accept.

    I like that idea.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Re: BUD GRANT FOR GM!

    I think Bud has earned his retirement & should enjoy life with his 4 greatest loves;

    Family, Vikings football, hunting & fishing.

    I'm greatful that Bud is on our staff as as a consultant.

    But if he were GM it would be more of a full time position & too "tasking" & that would take a great deal of time away from his other loves.

    It would be a great honor to him to offer the job though, although I feel he would turn them down.

    Exactly Singer. He loves teaching his grandkids hunting and fishing and the outdoors. Be thanksful we got him as much as we do.

    We just gotta move on, Bud is old and moved on, hes still around the Viking orginization but just becuase he loves the team. Its a new era...we're gonna get ourselfs a "new" Bud Grant ala Brad Childress!

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!
