    What Vikings players have you met?

    So, what Vikings players have you met? Some of you probably have extensive lists. I know Hamper Hider has played golf with a few.

    I've met the following:

    Matt Blair
    Bob Lurtzema
    Fran Tarkenton
    Alan Page
    Wally Hilgenberg
    Sammy White
    Ed White
    Stu Voigt
    Carl Eller
    Tommy Kramer
    Fred Smoot
    Randy Moss

    I think that pretty much exhausts my list. The only people on the list that I have actually talked to for more then a minute are Fred Smoot, Wally Hilgenberg, and Bob Lurtsema. I guess it's obvious that I haven't lived in MN for a few decades after looking at that list.

    I've never met a player, but I have Bud Grant's autograph.

    Yeah, I saw that misspelling and corrected it for some strange reason. I forgot about the barnstorming tours, do they still do that?

    No clue - would be cool - but I doubt it, since today's players are so much less approachable. Plus - they don't need the $$$ like they did back then. They came to my hometown (Marshalltown, IA) and played a game against local HS alumni and all that. As I recall (25+ years later) it was really neat.

    I need to add Joe Senser to my list, since I sat next to him at the bar in his restaurant in Bloomington during Day 1 of the NCAA tournament.
