    When Jim Kleinsasser found out he had been selected for induction into the North Dakota Sports Hall of Fame, he was taken aback....

    Nice to hear, congrats to Kleinsasser!

    If McKinnie do get suspended from some games, maybe we should use Jimmie Kleinsasser as a LT
    ;D

    Usually, a hall-of-fame induction happens *after* you end your career, but Jim Kleinsasser hasn't hung up it quite yet..

    “I’ve had some good teams in Minnesota,” Kleinsasser said. “But this team has a ton of talent. The big thing is we have the right type of guys — good teammates, guys who are willing to put the work in, sacrifice for the team. That’s huge, that cohesiveness and playing well together.”

    I think this is a perfect example of Brad Childress guys, like I've mentioned before there is standard set to be apart of this team. Those with the talent and willingness to get better and be great teamates will have an opportunity to win alot of games. TEAM is the very new aspect that Jimmy K is enjoying so much, he's seen the ups and downs but he's getting a glimpse of what its gonna be like to be on a championship team.

    I love the man. He has been one of my favorite vikings since he has been here. In madden against my friends, he always caught the winning touchdown

    Congrats to the guy. He's never been blessed as a pass catching TE but he gives 100% in everything that he does on the field. If there's one player who just gets on with his job and is never in the headlines then it's Jimmy K.
    I'd love to see him get a SB ring just to piss off some of the more flamboyant 'me first' players who will never get a ring.
    Well done Jimmy
