With the NFL Draft officially in the books and the Hall of Fame Game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Pittsburgh Steelers still. . .checks calendar. . .94 days away, we have officially hit the long, dark tea time of the offseason. With that in mind, this qualifies as news as much as anything. So, in a sentence I never thought I'd find myself writing. . .
Bud Grant is on Twitter.
Yes, that Bud Grant. The Bud Grant. (As opposed to the numerous other Bud Grants, I suppose.)
You can find the coach's account at @HPBudGrant. It's been promoted by the Vikings on their official account, so it's legitimate. And it's already being put to good use.

So hey, if you're not doing anything in two weeks, the coach is selling some more of his stuff. I'm a bit too far away to make it there myself, but if anyone else goes, let us know.
If you're on Twitter yourself, you can now follow the greatest coach in Minnesota Vikings history and one of the greatest of all-time. And, if you're so inclined, you can follow us, too. . .after all, Bud Grant follows us, so apparently we're on to something.
