This just makes us warm and tingly all over. Here’s video of a typical Minnesota Vikings fan running his mouth about how great his team is and how terrible every other team is. Fortunately, a San Diego Charger fan is there to give him what he deserves.
We wanted to kill ourselves… wait… no. We’ve found the most brilliant article in the Bleacher Report catalog, which is a gigantic piece of brilliance itself, and it turns out it’s written by a Minnesota Vikings fan. We’ll annotate it for you, since it’s obviously way above any Green Bay Packers fan.
Seriously, this is the dumbest thing you’ll see all day… wait, no, all week. Probably all month for that matter. The Minnesota Vikings are trying to get a new stadium. For the most part, no one cares including the fans.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was asked several questions about the team’s quarterback situation and struggled to say anything positive about rookie Christian Ponder or default incumbent Joe Webb. Peterson suggests he can’t see Ponder starting when the season opens.
We’d expect nothing less from a member of the Minnesota Vikings. Running back Adrian Peterson is ditching his own football camp, which begins tomorrow, claiming he has to film a show for the NFL Network. We’d probably ignore this if the camp wasn’t called the Old Spice Adrian Peterson Football Camp and the NFL Network didn’t say Peterson isn’t filming his spot until July.
There’s been a lot of talk about the Minnesota Vikings moving, specifically to Los Angeles, if the team doesn’t get a new stadium, but that is beginning to look more and more unlikely. The deal the Vikings are trying to craft with the state for a new stadium in suburban Arden Hills is far from done, but it does appear a little closer.
Two of the Minnesota Vikings main offensive weapons, running back Adrian Peterson and receiver Percy Harvin, are lobbying for the team to sign receiver Plaxico Burress, who was released from prison earlier this month. Burress hasn’t played football since 2008 after pleading guilty to gun charges and will be looking for a new home to resume his career when the lockout ends.
Former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle John Randle, who had a very public rivalry with quarterback Brett Favre when he was with the Green Bay Packers, still doesn’t think much of Favre. In fact, he recently compared Favre to a reality television show. “I’m done following him,” said Randle, who sacked Favre 13.5 times. “That went […]
We love tales of Minnesota Vikings woe almost as much as we love the Green Bay Packers, so it’s literally impossible for us not to tell you about Pro Football Talk’s list of the team’s four worst moments since 1987, which is the last time there was a lockout. PFT previously looked at the Packers’ four worst moments. The Vikings’ list of failure and ineptitude is much longer, though.
