There’s always something with this damn team. Of course the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings would be the only team in professional sports history to have a contract dispute with an unofficial mascot that people never really paid attention to. Good job, Ragnar.
Today on the show, I eviscerate Ragnar for demanding $20,000 per game for a gig he should have been happy to be earning only a paltry $1500 per, I list off ten possible mascot replacements, and go into my theory of why team mascots should always be in foam suits.
Dave Berggren (@DaveBerggren) formerly of Kare 11 sports fame drops by to talk about actual football and how the Vikings can keep the positive momentum from Sunday flowing through the rest of the 2015 campaign.
Wrapping up, Di Murphy (@DiMuprhyMN) swings in for her weekly spot as we chat about if Adrian can break his own single game rushing record of 296 yards versus the San Diego Super Chargers at home again.
All that and other “Blair Walsh needs to thank Ragnar” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
