One of my favorite sports writers is Patrick Reusse from the Minneapolis Star Tribune. He’s the perfect mix of wit and humor. And he can absolutely coax the English language into doing what he wants it to do. Reusse is a columnist, and I agree with his points of view probably 95% of the time.
In today’s Star Tribune, Reusse wrote about one of my favorite football players, Jim Kleinsasser. Kleinsasser is from Carrington, North Dakota, played college football at the University of North Dakota and is now entering his 13th year with the Minnesota Vikings. Reusse’s story can be found here.
Two winters ago I spent a couple of hours with Jim and his family at his beautiful Lake Minnetonka home. I was interviewing him for a television story. He could not have been any nicer. Thirteen years in the NFL is unreal accomplishment. I’m happy to see him get some ink. And to give him some.
