Former Vikings coach Grant quotes Randy Moss in garage-sale tweet
Legendary Vikings coach Bud Grant may be 89 years old, but he's as social-media savvy as any teenager when it comes to advertising his annual garage sale.
Grant posted a series of tweets about the sale during the past week, including one that referenced former star wide receiver Randy Moss.
We will have Moss Vikings stuff— Bud Grant (@HPBudGrant) May 7, 2016
The post referred to Moss' quote about how he would pay a $10,000 fine for pretending to pull his pants down during a 2005 wild-card game at Lambeau Field.
Grant likely would not have tolerated such behavior during his 18 years as the Vikings' coach. A stickler for discipline, Grant led the Vikings to four Super Bowls in the '60s and '70s. He made headlines during Minnesota's wild-card game this past January by wearing short sleeves onto the field during the coin toss, despite sub-zero temperatures.
The Grant-family garage sale runs May 18-20 at Grant's Bloomington home. No word on Grant's account whether he takes checks or credit at the sale or if it's just straight cash.
