Legendary sports writer from the twin cities for those who don't know of him, he was 100 and wrote his last column 6 days ago, he was also the official/unofficial GM of the Minneapolis Lakers.

His close personal friends were Bobby knight, Woody hayes, Bud Grant, George Steinbrenner to name a few and my dad who was his pharmacist for many years, my dad always said he was a very nice guy

Been reading his column my whole life . He was selling papers off the street corner in 1928. The last great sportswriter. He was a critic but a fan who loved sports. Writing columns until your a hundred unbelievable.Had a column in the Sports section today at at age 100 the day he passed.

My wife isn't a big sports fan,but she has nothing but good to say about Sid.
Sid lived in the town less than a mile from ours. At one time we had a restaurant ln our town,and ran into Sid there many times.He was always the gentleman and always took the time to talk to my wife and daughter.
I always enjoyed his column and radio shows.

If my feet aren't wet,I must not be trapping.

I liked listening to him on the radio. If a caller to the program disagreed with him he would call them a "genius" and hang up.

I was never a fan. That said, I didn't know him personally.

My son in law was a neighbor of his, and has always spoken highly of him

RIP.
