Sid Hartman, the longtime columnist for the Star Tribune of Minneapolis and a noted booster for sports in the region, died Sunday.
He was 100 years old.

"I have followed the advice that if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. Even at 100, I can say I still love what I do,'' Hartman wrote in a column that ran on his 100th birthday on March 15.

"He was an iconic sports figure, a tenacious reporter and a tireless advocate for his beloved state," the Vikings' statement continued. "His doggedness and work ethic were unmatched, 우리카지노쿠폰 but it was Sid's ability to nurture relationships that truly set

He was a confidant and a loyal friend to countless athletes and coaches across the country."

Adam Thielen, a wide receiver for the Vikings, said he "just heard a story from (Hartman) the other day, and 카지노사이트추천 he was obviously a big part of this organization and 카지노사이트쿠폰 was always around the facility, so we are grieving during this time."

Hartman was born in Minneapolis on March 15, 1920, and he worked for newspapers in his hometown for most of his life, according to the Star Tribune. At the time of his death he still was writing three or four columns a week.
