It's Not Just Current Vikings Who Suffer Embarrassing Arrests

News Item: Hall of Famer Carl Eller Arrested for DUI

Speaking of Canton enshrinees, I briefly interviewed Steelers Hall of Famer-turned-gubernatorial candidate Lynn Swann at a fundraiser Sunday morning, and I wanted to rib him about his Steelers having won two Super Bowls against my Vikings in the '70s. But I couldn't find the right words, so I just asked him about the Dubai Ports World deal, or whether he'd read last week's SI piece about his candidacy (he hadn't.)

Don't know if you saw this story on Carl in City Pages a couple of weeks ago, http://citypages.com/databank/27/1314/article14097.asp

Heck of a guy.

If it were Keith Millard we wouldn't bat an eye, but Eller has positioned himself as the Chemical Abuse Rehab Counselor Guy.
