Patrick Reusse uncovered a gem on Friday. It's a shocking statement from former Vikings head coach, Bud Grant.

"I'm going to the State Fair next week to make an appearance. It's going to be the first time I've been there," Grant admitted.

Seriously. Grant, the man who guided the Vikings to four Super Bowls and 11 division titles, has never been to the Great Minnesota Get-Together.

"And you know, we used to practice at the old Midway Stadium starting at the end of August, until the Twins season ended and we went to Met Stadium," Grant added. "We had to go through State Fair traffic to get to Midway for practice. For some reason, I never walked across the street to see what was going on.''

Reusse will have more with Grant in his Sunday column in the Star Tribune.
