Late last night, I hesitantly posted a rumor about Chris Cook’s choice to “celebrate” his acquittal by visiting the strip club in which it all began.  I decided to do so, but also made it clear that it was a rumor only and I am glad I did.


Because those actions would fly in the face of what Cook said after his court hearing Thursday, so the rumor couldn’t possibly be true (slight sarcasm).

“I got a job to do. I missed 10 games. I got to make up for that,” Cook said outside the courtroom following his acquittal.

“I know it might take some time to earn the trust of the organization and the fans, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes,” he continued.

Cook described the ongoing legal matters as an “emotional rollercoaster” and it appears the Vikings will welcome him back soon, and probably insert the 25 year old into the starting lineup.

If, that is, he doesn’t get in trouble between now and then.

  1. hmmm….this trial outcome is not surprising, and we need him, but where’s his common sense? perjury happens, so do payoffs, and favoritism. sounds like he was there………

    @saraboyd I should be clear that I’m not sure he’s celebrating acquittal, but he’s there:)

  2. I’d heard he was going to be so cautious from here forward that he wasn’t even going to choke his chicken…how disconcerting.
