Hall of Fame Vikings coach Bud Grant launched on Wednesday his final garage sale, with several hundred fans already showing up to buy a memory from one of the greatest eras in team history. Before the event resumes for 12 hours on Thursday, Coach Grant will spend a few minutes chatting with PFT Live.
He’ll join us at 8:35 a.m. ET, less than 30 minutes before the garage sale resumes. It runs through Friday, and features among other things an autographed, limited-edition bobblehead with the coach and his late hunting dog, Boom.
“They’ve been after me for a bobblehead doll for years, and I just never felt the need to do that,’’ Coach Grant recently told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “It’s an ego-trip kind of thing. But somebody suggested to have them at your garage sale to advertise. You’ve got to have a hook. You can’t just say, ‘Come to my garage sale and buy baby clothes.'”
If you’re in the Bloomington area on Thursday or Friday, go check it out.
