We’ll start this thing off with something that happened yesterday that we really didn’t touch on here at VT… Tedd Ginn Jr. is staying with the 49ers.
Our ever-loquacious punter believes Jonathan Vilma should be banned from the NFL for life.
Rick Spielman seems to be trying to throw everyone off and put up smoke screens regarding our #3 pick. They are smoke screens, right? Right…?!
“In Attempt Not to ‘Spend to Spend,’ Vikings Seemingly Already Spending to Spend,” states this Vikings writer.
In the never-ending-stadium-story, it looks like the Vikings may be getting a sign-off by the Minneapolis City Council.
Over at KAB, our friends get a little crazy and question where the franchise would be had it used Rosenfels instead of Favre in 2010 (amongst many other things).
Do the referees deserve some of the blame for the bounties placed on Favre and how it affected the 2009 NFC Championship game?
Jared Allen thinks the Saints got what they deserved.
Chris Kluwe stands up for “snitches” and goes on (expletive-filled) Twitter rant.
Now, I don’t have any videos to show for the “moment of zen” that Adam typically does here… I do have a story though. (One I told Adam yesterday after he brought up his concern that WR prospect Stephen Hill reminded him of another ex-Viking who bolted up in the draft due to great workouts. He insisted that I try to fit this little story in somewhere and I guess right here is as good as anywhere.)
A few years ago, my family and I went to a buffet (they’re in every casino here in Vegas) around the corner for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Of course, I was in my big, purple, #28 jersey; I wore it proudly (the Vikes were hot stuff at the time). We all sat down and waited for our waiter to greet us and take our drink orders so we could be unleashed and pounce upon the endless spread of food. Our waiter came and this is the short exchange that followed:
“Good morning, I’m [Derek] and I’ll be your waiter this morning. Oh! You a Vikings fan?”
“Cool! My little nephew actually used to play for the Vikings a while back.”
“Really?! Who was he?”
“Iced tea, please.”
“Moment of zen?” I think not… And yes, Adam compared Stephen Hill to Troy Williamson. Hold your tongue, Adam!
