    So Long Bob Rainey

    Bob Rainey, a Twin Cities sports reporter on WCCO Television passed away Saturday, at the age of 46, after a battle with colon cancer.
    I've always been a fan of Rainey because of his history.
    While Rainey was raised in New York, he is a life-long Vikings fan.
    His dream job was to cover his favorite team, which dream he finally realized four years ago, when hired by WCCO.

    I know this doesn't mean much to those of you outside of the TC area... but he was one of us, a Vikings fan.

    I remember him from when I lived in Minnesota... R.I.P. My prayers go out to his family.
