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.

A lot of runners hate the treadmill, but it beats the alternative.
