Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Stu's Hunt Down: Ex-Viking Kirk Lowdermilk

Posted by: Michael Rand under Vikings Updated: February 3, 2011 - 2:10 PM

This is where commenter Stu does his thing. It often involves obscure band references (check!) and cheap shots at rivals (check!). Stu?

------------------------

The Hunt Down

Name: Kirk Lowdermilk
 
Claim to Fame, Minnesota: the wonderfully-named, mustachioed Lowdermilk played center for the Minnesota Vikings from 1986 to 1992.
 
Claim to Fame, Everywhere Else: Lowdermilk left the Vikings for Indianapolis in 1993, signing a contract that made him the highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL. The deal: three years, $6 million plus. (By comparison, Steve Hutchinson gets paid that much just to be surly.) He finished his career with the Colts in 1996. The Canton native played college ball for Ohio State, because his last name was Lowdermilk, for Pete’s sake. 
 
Where He Is Now: Wiki says the Ohio city of Carrollton. By all accounts, he enjoys hunting (scroll down a bit). His son Johnny is tempting fate by taking his glorious surname to [redacted] Iowa City, where he should probably avoid the weight room and Derrell Johnson-Koulianos’ house.
 
Is He on Twitter: perhaps. His handle is @trees63, Lowdermilk’s jersey number was 63, and the first Tweet mentions coaching football. The account has been inactive since March of 2009, so we may never get any Account Verified finality. David Chase approves.
 
Glorious Randomness: there was a band called Loudermilk in the early part of the last decade. You can buy their debut album, The Red Record, for a penny. Let me know if it’s any good.
