Clear your calendars VT’ers!
Tomorrow the Vikings are going to march into Lambeau Field without Percy Harvin available to them, and attempt to shock everybody in the football loving world.
Join us for all of the action right here at VT where yours truly will be hosting a live chat throughout the entire game.
[Editor’s Note: While I will certainly be hosting the live chat, I would like to point out that I am officially listed as “questionable” on the VT injury report. See, my son loves dinosaurs, and sees them everywhere. Shadows on the wall. Chip clips. Everything is a dinosaur to him… and this morning, that included my wife’s hot curling iron. That “dino” decided to “eat” my hand as I was getting ready this morning. I might not be 100% healthy, and may not make my cuts to the spacebar as quickly as normal, but I will be here.]
I have no excuse for my absence the last few days other than the fact that moving closer to family means you get to enjoy things with family, and in this case that was Mom’s Thanksgiving Dinner. Thanks Mom!
Anyways, I wanted to let you all know that I plan on taking a break from turkey sandwiches long enough to host a live chat for Sunday’s divisional matchup in Chicago (which will feature Jay Cutler, but not Percy Harvin) as the Vikings start their post-bye playoff chase.
Be here a few minutes before kickoff and enjoy the game with your VT friends.
I’ll bring the pumpkin pie!
Inactive for the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday are:
Raymond being inactive means that the Vikings get to wait at least four more days before deciding if Raymond or Jamarca Sanford will be the starting safety once both are healthy. Wright remains inactive, which has been somewhat of a mystery this season.
Otherwise, the Vikings are a pretty healthy football team which could be a key for not only this game, but in trying to accomplish a four day turnaround for next week’s matchup.
NOTE: Sorry guys and gals, we will once again be skipping out on the live chat for this week. We’ll aim to be live on Thursday night, however.
