    A co-worker of mine had a silent auction at work during the past week for a kids charity & one of the packages included;

    An autographed hard-cover copy of Matt's book "To be a Viking"

    An autographed Matt Blair T-shirt

    An autographed 8x10 action photo of Matt
    Matt Blair is my all-time favorite Vike!
    I'll give you $10 for the picture!!
    (I already have the book - it's a nice read).

    It's no great work of literature, that's for sure, and I wished some of the stories got a little deeper, but it's a nice read and certainly cool to see some of the old names.

    He's one of the all time greatest. What a player.
    The newer fans who didn't get to see him play missed out ona true Viking great.

    Good job Singer. Glad you got it.

    Re: Thank you Matt Blair

    You're not going to believe this, but last Wednesday a co-worker came up to me & asked me if I've ever heard of "Matt something or other" from the Vikings.

    I asked him, "Do you mean Matt Blair?"

    He said "Yes, that's the name."

    I told him Matt played LB for the Vikings in the 70's & 80's, was a probowl player & had written a book called "To be a Viking".

    As it turns out, he took a course thru work & the instructor, Lori Severson, is known for handing out prizes as rewards. He ended up getting an autograph copy of Matt Blairs book as a prize.

    He proceded to tell me he was not into watching proffessional sports on TV of any kind & asked me if I wanted the book.

    Of course I accepted & now I have two of them.

    The way my luck was running, I immediately purchased a Power Ball ticket after work for that nights drawing. Unfortunately, my luck ended there.
