    Code:
    Is "Bud" Grant's true name really Harry Peter?? How long before he got the nick name, Bud? Does anyone know?
    I did a search and here is what I came up with:

    blog.lib.umn.edu/maasx003/Vikings/043724.html
    Born Harry Peter Grant, Jr. to Bernice and Harry Peter Grant, Sr. in Superior, Wisconsin on May 20, 1927, 'Bud' earned his nickname to help his mother avoid the confusion of two Harry's in their house. His mother's first choice 'Buddy Boy' was eventually shortened to 'Bud'.

    Instead of 'Major Dad', I think 'Major Brad' would be more apt...


    The man who says he CAN'T and the man who says he CAN are BOTH right.

    I don't like it.

    The whole military connection reminds me too much of Les Steckel.

    Plus nicknaming a coach after a comedy TV show, just because he somewhat resembles Gerald McCraney, is a slap in the face to Childress, IMO.

    Nicknaming a NFL coach after a comedy TV show star, just because he somewhat resembles Ron Howard, is a slap in the face to Childress, IMO.
