MINNEAPOLIS — Bud Grant turned 87 Tuesday and got a nice birthday present.

Minneapolis was awarded Super Bowl LII, to be played in the Vikings’ new stadium in February 2018. The legendary Vikings coach, who then would be 90, sure wants to be there.

“I hope I’m around,” Grant said shortly after Minneapolis beat out New Orleans and Indianapolis in voting by NFL owners in Atlanta. “That will be a bonus if I’m there.”
