Viking Underground Podcast Fifty-Seven

Audio Description: This week's podcast is back to actually talking Vikings football. Back in 1997, I had conducted a series of interviews with Vikings coaches and front office personnel. Back then, I had used an old micro-cassette recorder to conduct the interview and then set to transcriping it for the ol' Viking Underground. You see, there were no such things as digital recorders or podcasts in those dark days of yore. I recently located those old tapes and have set to making them available via VU podcasts. While they are dated, they make good listening. For example, this week's podcast is from mini-camp April 1997 when I sat down with Brian Billick, then offensive coordinator for the Vikings. It is interesting to hear Billick speak to such players as Robert Smith, Brad Johnson, and Randall McDaniel knowing what we know now.

Viking Underground Podcast Forty-Six

Audio Description: He serves as the agent for notables such as Stephen Davis and Todd Sauerbrun. He also happens to be the agent for the Vikings Willie Offord and Troy Williamson. He has had multiple features on ESPN.com. He is David Canter, who only started work as an agent after a chance meeting on the side of the road. In 1995, Canter was at a gas station, changing a signal lamp on his car, when he ran into Miami Dolphin Lamar Thomas. After chatting for a few minutes, Canter got Thomas' cell phone number. Not too long afterward, Canter did some marketing deals for Thomas, who eventually became the first client for Canter's company. It was my pleasure to speak with David and gain some insight into the world of being an agent for some of the highest priced athletes in the world. During the podcast you will learn insight into the agents view of the Wilf ownership, the new head coach, Offord's rehab, and even some news on Daunte!

The first version you will hear is the orginal by Fleetwood Mac from their "Rumours" CD which is followed by a version performed by The Corrs. Which is better?
