86 reasons to chill

86 reasons to chill

Yeah, I know he’s throwing stuff out like 40-0 (which may happen) and NDSU people are bunch of hayseeds — and I know he’s as arrogant of a human being as they come — but let’s lighten up on the Old Man of Sportswriters a bit. Just let Sid Hartman be.

The man is 86 years old.

If most of us are still able to utter a complete sentence at 86 — and that’s assuming most of us will make it to 86 — I think we would take it.  

My first run-in with Sid was several years ago in a locker room when I was talking to Vikings offensive lineman Tim Irwin. In the middle of Irwin’s answer, Sid barreled right in — damn near physically shoved me aside — and took over. The man was a total jerk. I know the Star Trib brass is well aware of what’s going on.

But all that aside, just let him be. He’s 86.
