When it comes to discussions of the “greatest Vikings of all time” there is little argument against Alan Page.
The man just continues to impress with anything he does, even with his Hall of Fame NFL days way in the rear-view mirror, and now he will be beginning another chapter of his ridiculously productive life.
Page will be forced to retire from the Minnesota Supreme Court in August, according to the Star-Tribune, due to an age limit imposed on members of the court. Page will be turning 70 and will have served 22 years on the highest court in the State.
Page was the first African-American member of the Minnesota Supreme Court and is well known as a champion for equality and justice. He says that his retirement will bring a renewed focus on his philanthropy, and possibly even a little downtime.
