Pity Poor Mike Lynn

From a Sid Hartman column last week:

Mike Lynn, the former general manager of the Vikings who was instrumental in getting the Metrodome built, later was rewarded when then-Vikings President Max Winter made it possible for Lynn to receive a percentage of the income from the suites.

Sources claim Lynn's share has been worth as much as $400,000 per season. Now, with the end of the Vikings' Metrodome lease
coming in 2011, there is some question whether Lynn still will draw that income if the Vikings continue to play in the dome while a stadium is built.

That poor guy! How will Lynn, who hasn't worked for the Vikings in 15 years, live without a six-figure income that he earns from doing absolutely nothing?

I'm even more upset about Cris Carter not making the Hall of Fame again...
