In 2014, the Vikings announced a settlement with former punter Chris Kluwe over his departure from the team the previous year, which included the team making donations to groups fighting for marriage equality and others causes.
They’re going to deliver on that promise in June.
According to Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Vikings will host a summit and fundraiser at their team headquarters on June 21 “to promote LGBTQ inclusion in sports and raise money for LGBTQ groups.”
Kluwe will speak at the event, along with former Olympic diver Greg Louganis and longtime NFL defensive lineman Esera Tuaolo.
The Celtics dug themselves an early first-quarter hole highlighted by three missed dunk attempts on a night when Boston missed a staggering 15 dunks and layups overall. Despite numerous second-half surges, the Celtics never truly got over the hump, as the Cavaliers fended them off en route to a 111-102 triumph at Quicken Loans Arena.
“It’s the best two out of three to go to the NBA Finals. Doesn’t get better than that,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. “Ultimately, anybody that didn’t think this was going to be tough — I mean, everything is tough. In this deal, it’s a blast to have to grit your teeth, get up off the mat and go after it again. That’s part of it.”
The series is tied at 2-2. Game 5 is Wednesday in Boston.
The Celtics won’t find watching film of Monday’s loss very therapeutic. There were head-slapping miscues in the first half and numerous missed chances to pull close in the fourth quarter. What’s more, the Cavaliers generated 15 total points directly off the 15 missed dunks and layups that Boston had in Game 4.
