Thanks to Frazier, and also to General Manager Rick Spielman, the entire atmosphere around Winter Park has changed. Jim Souhan of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune highlights that trend in his most recent article.
For decades, when you left the Vikings' Winter Park facility, you needed a long shower. Maybe even a luffa.
You were constantly confronted with the ugly realities of an ugly business, from ownership and management infighting to angry and sometimes felonious players. Paranoia often ruled, and often for good reason. The Vikings had a lot to hide.
These days, the franchise that brought you such great hits as Denny Green's Basement Tapes, The Love Boat, the Original Whizzinator and "Straight Cash, Homey,'' has become the kind of place you wouldn't mind bringing your children.
