As the Minnesota Vikings were about to kick off against the Seattle Seahawks in one of the coldest games in NFL history, former Vikings head coach Bud Grant furthered his legend by taking to the field in a short-sleeved shirt.
The 88-year-old—I repeat, the 88-year-old—Grant showed off his toughness by wearing the polo in sub-zero temperatures. This after Grant asked someone to hold his coat, according to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello:

Per the Vikings, Sunday's NFC Wild Card Game is the coldest in franchise history:

No one will judge Grant if he decides to put his jacket back on. Many fans will find themselves wanting to put on jackets just from watching this game.
