Dear Chuck,



I’m proud to call Minnesota home. Ever since I retired as Vikings head coach, I’ve stayed involved in the community and our state’s great sports and outdoor traditions.



If you’re like me, you’re used to hearing, year after year, that our state legislature needs to do something about a new Vikings stadium. Now there is an exciting new plan to build Northern Lights – Minnesota’s Sports, Retail & Entertainment Center. This plan makes good sense for our state. It’s time to get down to business and make it a reality.



That’s why I’ve agreed to serve as co-chair of a new group comprised of Vikings fans and Minnesotans from all walks of life. The name of our coalition is Minnesota Momentum. We’re committed to getting this project moving and getting a new stadium built.



Please join us. Click here to visit our website and sign up as a member. Joining doesn’t cost a thing. It just means that you’re standing with thousands of others who want to move our state forward.



In case you haven’t heard the details, the Minnesota Sports, Retail & Entertainment Center is an important economic development project, with $1 billion in private investment, that will include shops, restaurants, space for small businesses, a new medical center and 260 acres of preserved wetlands and trails. This is a great opportunity to resolve the Vikings stadium issue, build for the future of our state and promote a tremendous boost to our economy. Please join us to support it!



Sincerely,







Coach Bud Grant

Yes they do.
I went to dinner in Fort Worth the other night and our waitress was from Green Bay.
We all hit it off, and she was dogging the Vikings all through the meal.
Then after we ate (Cuzz I saw "Waiting) I lit into her.
All her co-wait staff just loved it.
They gave me a free dessert!!
I was too funny.

I still not a big fan of the design of the stadium or the complex, but it would be better than the dome. Maybe in reality it will look better than the way I am picturing it!

But remember to keep contacting your representatives and tell your friends to support the Vikings new stadium.

Good Golly. Bud was out east here pitchin' "Hunting Safety" to Mr. Cheney. He wanted Mr. Cheney to come back to Minnesota and demonstrate "Gun Handling" on the Minnesota Legislators - Stadium Subcommittee.

I guess it didn't work out so he decided to send a mass e-mail instead!

Not signed by Grant you don't.

I got one from Bud as well. It was right after the one from Jesus telling me to buy viagra. I didn't think much of the one from Bud after that as my feelings were hurt that Jesus thought I had an "ED" problem...........

Geez... I titled it what I did because it would draw attention and also show how Grant is the co-chair of this movement.

I just thought it was cool he was getting so involved with it.

Do I think he sat down and personally wrote that to me....NO :roll:
however he did have to come up with the letter in the first place.

so please quit ripping on me.

---sorry for sharing it with you-- :mad:

THIS BUD'S FOR YOU

Former Vikings coach Bud Grant was introduced Wednesday as co-chair of the Vikings-backed coalition called Minnesota Momentum, set up to help the franchise get a new stadium. On Tuesday night, the team sent 112,000 e-mails to Minnesotans with a message from Grant asking people to join the stadium effort. I talked Wednesday to Grant about the coalition. Here he is …

On his role: "Politicians only hear from the naysayers, the people who are against everything. The people have to let these guys know (what they want). The legislators need some help. They don't know what to do.

They're stuck. They're for everything, but they vote for nothing. I can't go over there and pound on their door. They'll say, 'Bud, good to see you. We love the Vikings. Remember that game? Geez, what are you doing? You getting any ducks? How's the fishing? Stop by any time. We love to see you.' That doesn't amount to anything. I'm one vote. So they've got to get the help from the people they represent. And the people of Minnesota love the Vikings. … They've got to come forward now and get (legislators) off the pot."

On politicians: "I think we're being shortchanged by our politicians. They're so self-centered and so entrenched in whatever they're doing. … The thing that scares me when I talk to these guys is, they're going to sit around and do nothing, and there's not going to be a team. You can say they're not going to let that happen. How long do you want to suffer like this? You want to go until 2011 (when the Vikings' stadium lease expires)? Then, at the last minute, we'll build a half-baked stadium under the gun. Who wants to live like that?"
