    "Minnesota Vikings: The Complete Illustrated History' is the Star Tribune's thorough look at the Purple's five decades as an NFL franchise. The book is illustrated by scores of photos from the newspaper's archives...

    May have to get it. Looks like some of it is about my hero -- Joe Kapp!

    I finally got my copy. Also got "A Tradition of Purple" by Jim Bruton.

    Looks like I'll have to take a trip to the local book store, maybe Amazon has it also
    I'm thinking.
    Sounds like a nice book to read, and help me deal with this cabin fever I have lately.

    Looks like a cool book!

    I just picked up my copy of "A Tradition Of Purple" when I was there for the Giants game and Stu Voigt was at the MOA signing copies of it and it's pretty good as well.

    Dam Tad,
    where was Stu at?
    One of the book stores?
    I was there also, right after the game, with Singer and CTVikingfan.
    We just went to the Vikings Locker Room, and didn't see him there.
    Then we stopped at Nickelodium Store and CTVF had to pick up some Dora stuff he wanted
    :
    LOL










    Hate to see I missed him.

    I was there the Saturday before the game and he was set up at a table right outside the Vikings Locker Room with the author signing copies. They also had other copies already signed by other former Vikings but I'm not a big fan of autographs you don't get yourself. Stu brought up how he thought we were gonna win against the Giants and talked to me for about 5 minutes..very nice guy.

    lol! Sounds like Nickelodium was fun though too...
