NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS

Tom Clancy died today at the age of 66, he was once almost the Vikings owner

Today one of the best author’s ever died in a Baltimore Hospital at the age of 66.  Back in 1998,  Tom Clancy who is best known for his books “The Hunt of Red October, and Clear and Present Danger” almost purchased the Minnesota Vikings.

Clancy submitted the winning bid to purchase the Minnesota Vikings in 1998 for a reported $200 million, but the deal ended up falling through after his divorce proceedings caused concern that he wouldn’t be able to provide his share of the purchase price.

I wonder what the team would have been like under Clancy? If he was as good as Owner as he was an author, the Vikings would probably have a Super Bowl Ring.
