Vikings legend Bud Grant walks onto the field wearing a t-shirt in the bitter cold

By Derek Wetmore

MINNEAPOLIS — For Bud Grant, apparently, handling the cold is a question of mind over matter.

He doesn’t seem to mind, so what does it matter?

The legendary former Vikings coach was out on the field before Sunday’s Vikings-Seahawks game and was wearing a collared purple shirt and no coat.

It’d be one thing if Grant was standing around in the cold for three hours in that attire. In that case, we’re talking certain frostbite in temperatures measued a six degrees below zero at kickoff.

But seeing Grant out there on the field might have given a few Vikings fans goosebumps on Sunday. I was cold just looking at him.
