Jim Irsay bought Prince’s famous yellow guitar at auction, but rather than stash the instrument away, he should put it up as a trophy.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay occasionally likes to scoop out handfuls of gold from his Scrooge McDuck gold pile and purchase iconic musical instruments. In his life Irsay has collected instruments once belonging Jerry Garcia, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and Bob Dylan. Any of the above outcomes would, to my mind and probably the minds of a lot of Prince fans, be an insult to both the guitar and the man who used to shred on it. No great rock instrument should be relegated to some rich guy’s house just so he can show off how much money he has.
Jim Irsay, Indianapolis Colts owner, put up Prince’s guitar as a trophy when your team plays the Minnesota Vikings in 2016. Prince is of course connected to Minnesota and especially the Twin Cities like no other cultural figure. Prince was so into all things Twin Cities that he even occasionally became a Vikings fan, notably in 2009 when Brett Favre was leading the team on a playoff run and Prince decided they needed a fight song.
The fight song was hideous, the team ultimately did not make the Super Bowl and afterward Prince seemingly went back to not caring about the Vikings, but all that’s irrelevant. Minnesotans feel such a sense of ownership over Prince and his legacy that I bet more than a few of them were ticked when they learned his guitar had been purchased not by Zygi Wilf (who frankly doesn’t seem like much of a Prince guy) but Jim Irsay, owner of a rival team.
I’m sure Jim Irsay doesn’t care much about the feelings of Minnesotans, but if he does possess even a shred of compassion for Prince fans from Minnesota who are still grieving about his death and now have had this memorabilia-related insult added to their injury, perhaps he would be willing to give Minnesota a chance to win back the guitar?

PALESTINE, Texas a€” Two doors down from Bent Tree Drive, standing outside his red-brick house, Jerry Mayo, once a roughneck in the oil fields of West Texas and now a retired educator on the Lone Star Statea€™s east end, weighed a whuppinga€™s virtues.

Corporal punishment is still permitted inside the Palestine Independent School District where Vikings tailback Adrian Peterson starred in high school from 2001-2004, when Mayo was superintendent.
Memorabilia from Adrian Peterson's football career at the University of Oklahoma and with the Minnesota Vikings is on display at Palestine High School in Palestine, Texas, where he graduated in 2004.
Peterson eventually agreed to pay child support ($2,500 due on the 15th of every month) and school tuition ($1,385 per month this school year), but his schedule appears free going forward. A few houses down the block, as family members and friends came and went from his mothera€™s brick house overlooking the Willow Creek Golf Cluba€™s course, was a sign posted for golfers cruising on carts and locals steering pickups.

Because Jim Irsay figures, since he has lots of money, that means he’s entitled to own pieces of our collective cultural history.
This weekend, the rich music lover added to his personal rock and roll museum by shelling out $137,500 for a yellow guitar once owned by Prince.
Not only did Prince come from the Cities and cut his musical teeth in venues there, after he became a big-time star he still headquartered himself in Chanhassen.
In our minds Prince is connected to the Vikings however tenuously, and folks from Minnesota certainly think of him as one of their own without reservation. He talked about the evolution of educational discipline: paddles stored in teachersa€™ desks, rulers rapped against fists and modern-day timeouts.
Disciplined as a child with sticks and belts by his father, Nelson, in an old railroad town of 18,000 residents, Peterson found himself explaining his methods as a parent.
For those still in disbelief that Peterson may have played his last game for the Vikings, there were reminders of what Peterson lost in the last week outside his mother Bonita Jacksona€™s house in Spring, Texas, 126 miles south of Palestine.
He also acknowledged the difference between a familya€™s disciplinary approach and a schoola€™s.
One son, Tyrese Ruffin, died after receiving a beating from the mothera€™s boyfriend, Joey Patterson, last October in Sioux Falls, S.D.

Flying on a nearby tree was a black New Orleans Saints flag, the team that the Vikings will play without Peterson in the lineup Sunday afternoon. So too is passing the hat and attempting to purchase the guitar from the insanely rich dude who now owns it. He wona€™t want to stay at the house because youa€™re not gonna make things real pleasant for him.a€™a€? I think Adrian made a grave mistake. He was indicted by the Montgomery County (Texas) grand jury, charged with reckless or negligent injury to a child after beating his 4-year-old son with a small tree branch, leaving bloody cuts, welts and bruises on the boya€™s legs and buttocks.
His status as the nationa€™s top prep player is still recalled, and his Heisman Trophy campaign at Oklahoma is memorialized on an accompanying plaque. Peterson only learned that the boy was his two months before Ruffin was beaten, but there are more children belonging to Peterson, who married Ashley Brown, mother of another one of his children, in July.
In turn, the Vikings meted out a form of corporate punishment, giving Peterson, a former MVP, a timeout of indefinite length, banishing the tailback from all Vikings activities.
It takes joggers and runners 46 steps to ascend the cement stands, but Petersona€™s accomplishments greet them there, between Sections E and F. Children charge into his camps each summer, the town surrendering to Petersona€™s celebrity with its annual a€?Adrian Peterson Day.a€? Peterson rides on the back of a Corvette convertible. In 2013, he wore a white T-shirt with the words a€?Adrian Knowsa€? printed in bold lettering.
