Bud Grant is on Twitter and he's bringing back his popular garage sale


Bud Grant is in the Hall of Fame for football, but you could have a part of Bud Grant in your hallway if you take advantage of his upcoming garage sale.

The beloved former Minnesota Vikings head coach announced on Twitter – yes, one of the toughest men in Minnesota sports history has a Twitter account – that his popular garage sale will be held Wednesday through Friday, May 20-22.

The Pioneer Press notes that Grant debuted his garage sale last year and sold a bunch of outdoors equipment and Vikings memorabilia. The only details the coach has released about this year's items are some Les Kouba paintings.

Grant's Twitter handle is @HPBudGrant. The "HP" represents his real name, Harold Peter Grant.

2013 Super Bowl-winning Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll welcomed Grant to Twitter. Carroll's first season as Vikings defensive backs coach in 1985 was Grant's final season coaching the Vikings.

Grant's response to Carroll: "Just trying to #winforever"

Grant took the Vikings to four Super Bowls in the 1970s and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1994.
