I hate the Queens, in part, because of the way they dominated the Pack in the 1970s.
One of the Minnesota players who always seemed to kill us was outside linebacker Matt Blair.
Sorry to hear he passed away, likely due to effects of CTE, today.
Matt Blair was as big a reason as any that the Vikings dominated the 70's NFC. 4 superb owls.
That story is terrifying. Up until about 20 years ago I'd never heard of anyone dying from ALS besides Lou Gehrig. Now there's an epidemic of it among former pros.
I can't think of a worse fate than to be told "you are going to lose your mind, you're going to know it's happening and there's nothing to be done about it."
I've thought about it and if I ever get that confirmed diagnosis, I believe I will take the 9mm cure.
