Purple FTW! Podcast: Vikings Summer, Summer, Summertime (ep. 378) | 1500 ESPN

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings have broken down their Mini-Camp tents and dispersed for the summer. It only took a day for news of the first legal run-in to break (KOMBUCHA!!!!), but hopefully it will all be low profile until the Purple reconvene in Mankato at the end of July.

Today’s Talkers Include:
• Dammit, Michael Floyd
• We Didn’t Need Eric Decker
• Zimmer Becoming HEAD COACH Mike Zimmer
• Let’s Talk About David Morgan
• Dalvin Cook Has Been Impressing
• Trae Waynes is Gonna Start
• Thoughts on the ‘Packer’ Wedding
• Check-In With Jordan Reid (@JReidDraftScout) of The Viking Age

All that and more “PLEASE no (more) legal run-ins before Training Camp” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

VT Roundtable Episode 17

Welcome Back to the VT Roundtable!

The team once again gathers around the table to talk a variety of different Vikings topics. This episode features a five-man squad consisting of ever-optimistic Austin Belisle (@austincbelisle), ever-pessimistic Drew Mahowald (@DrewMahowald), ever-charismatic(@NeumSamN), ever-rational Adam Warwas (@vikingterritory) and the ring leader Brett Anderson (@brettAnderson87).  The group discusses whether or not they’re buying Michael Floyd’s kombucha story and joins Zimmer in his recent self-reflection to determine areas the head coach can improve. Things are wrapped up in entertaining fashion when the team picks what current Vikings player they’d want to be with on a deserted island.

– GUEST POST –

This post was guest-written by Luke Braun, who is a writer for Purple PTSD and co-host of the Purple Journal Podcast. Since before he can remember, he was immersed in the ups and crippling downs of Vikings fandom. In adulthood, he’s taken an analytical approach to evaluation, but the compelling stories of each NFL player are not lost on him. Outside of football, Luke works in digital media and the film industry, giving him a unique perspective on the characters and story of the NFL.


On Friday, TMZ dropped a bombshell on an otherwise quiet time of year by reporting that Michael Floyd had violated the terms of his DUI sentence just five days before the end of his house arrest. Floyd and his camp quickly responded with a statement of his own.

On June 10, 2017, Michael watched movies at his place of residence until 3:00 a.m. During that time, he drank several bottles of kombucha tea drinks, unaware that the drinks contain alcohol.

On June 11, 2017 at 5:30 a.m., Michael was tested and his blood alcohol content was .055. Michael was tested again at 5:54 a.m. and his blood alcohol content was down to .045. Michael was tested again at 6:23 a.m. and his blood alcohol content was .044. He then went back to sleep and missed a test at 6:33 a.m.


Floyd called the allegations “totally false.” But Floyd’s story and timeline don’t quite add up. Using bloodalcoholcalculator.org and some basic math, we can get a rough idea of how much kombucha tea it would take to get Michael Floyd’s BAC up to .055 at the time of testing. Since we’re comparing to a mild drink like kombucha tea, we’ll start with a light beer, something like a Labatt Blue, then convert it later. If you disagree with any of these estimations, or simply want to play along, go to that linked site and play around.
