On Sunday, I had the opportunity to represent Vikings Territory on Kare 11′s Vikings Extra show. I received a message from sports producer Dan Edwards, and I jumped at the opportunity to make my television debut. It was an absolutely fantastic experience. The entire sports crew at Kare 11 was fantastic—down-to-earth, welcoming, and just plain fun.
Every week, Vikings Extra features a writer/media person, a football fan, and a Minnesota athlete (former or current). Last night’s panel featured myself as the writer, Apple Valley football coach David Paradeise, and former San Antonio Spur and Minnesota native Rich Melzer. Eric Perkins facilitated the panel discussion; the three main topics covered during the TV portion were the following: (1) what will the second half of the Vikings season look like? (2) the AP situation, and (3) who is your biggest disappointment on the Vikings roster thus far?
A six-minute edited segment played on Kare 11 following the Sunday Night Football game, and the entire piece is online. Watch below and comment!
