    I'm really surprised this hasn't received a single reply.

    I wish I would have been born 20 years sooner, so I could have at least seen his teams.
    I guess my parents were a little slow.

    Bud is either freezing his balls off or he converted to oompa-loompa

    Go Bud Grant. Even if he were a Vikings Coach before I started watching the NFL he's the Vikings Coach in history.

    I think he still has an office at Winter Park, I wonder what he does for the team these days other than just being around from time to time.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Wonder what they will go for?

    The Vikings have commissioned nationally recognized artist Terrence Fogarty to create a print recognizing Bud's lifetime achievement in athletics. The print will depict his high school career at Superior (Wis.) Central, as well as his time at Great Lakes Naval Training Station, the University of Minnesota, in pro basketball with the Minneapolis Lakers, in pro football with Philadelphia, Winnipeg and the Vikings and his love of the outdoors.

    All proceeds from the sale of the portrait will go to the Vikings Children Fund.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    He still has an office & still works in administration as a consultant Although I'm sure only on a limited basis..
