RIP Tingelhoff. Tough guy, good player.

Tinglehoff spoke at one of our High School athletic banquets, once. He seemed like a good guy, even if he was a viking. He told some good stories of guys he faced while in Minnesota. One story I remember, was when he lined up at Center for the vikings and he looked up to see who he was to block on the play. He saw Big Daddy Lipscomb licking his chops. It was a Tinglehoff "Oh shit" moment.
