[quote="So.Mn.Fan"][quote="El Duderino"]That's an awesome story about Eddie Mac. The only Viking I have ever met in person is Justice Page. When I worked at Super America, he would come in from time to time. The first time he came in while I was working, I didn't recognize him. After he left, my boss asked if I knew who that was, I said no, and he told me. The next time he came in was shortly after a controversial supreme court decision, and we chatted about it a bit. I told him I thought he made the right call and told him why. He said, "That's exactly what I thought." He also recommended Acme deli to me. He spoke a year or two later at my now sister-in-law's graduation from Macalester (home of the second worst football team of all time!), and I have seen him in my neighborhood. When my wife and I were planning our wedding, we met with the guy who decorated our cakes at A Piece of Cake on Selby. While we were looking over selections and tasting cakes, in pulls a tan Mini Cooper. Who should get out other than the Justice himself. He is a very tall man, and a wealthy one at that, and he drives a Mini! Not what I was expecting. Anyway, I would have to say he's my favorite Viking, if for no other reason than what he has done since he left football. Is there a more accomplished NFL alum? I don't know, but I can't think of any. Also, I absolutely LOVED Robert Griffith. A guy smaller than me, and one of the hardest hitters in the league for years. Gotta love that.[/quote] Excellent choices. To answer your question, No, no player has accomplished more post-career than Alan. Has refused to take no for an answer his whole life. A true renaissance man, imo. Should have stayed a Viking his whole career, those years in a black uni hurt. And they fell in love with him in Chicago as well.[/quote] A quick read shows that Byron White played a couple years with Pittsburgh and Detroit in the NFL before becoming a US Supreme court justice. So, maybe not quite the most successful post-NFL career, but he is close to the top.
