Kent Syverson: Make Bud Grant smile

Letter writer encourages the Minnesota Vikings to win a Super Bowl for Bud Grant.

Reader Opinion letter

My all-time favorite sports memory is the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team.

Tied for second are the two Minnesota Twins World Series wins. There's no way I can separate those two.

Tied for third are the four Minnesota Lynx WNBA Championships. Again, there's no way I can separate them. The only reason that the Lynx are in third place is that they don't get as much media coverage as the other teams.

My favorite memory is now 41 years old. What will it take to replace it at Number One?

How about the Vikings winning the Super Bowl? They are 0-4 all-time in Super Bowls, and they haven't been to one since 1977.


Bud Grant, who was the head coach back then, is now in his 90's. He can't live forever. Neither can we. So how about it, Vikings? Make Coach Grant smile for a change.

Go for it!
