FARGO - All those Minnesota Vikings fanatics – who Thursday night watched the ESPN trio of Fred Flintstone, Chucky and Quentin Tarantino emcee the NFL draft – will forever shudder when they hear this name: Troy Williamson
FARGO - To this day, Cliff Hermes still chuckles about the 1959 Campbell (Minn.)
