Minnesota Vikings Mark Craig

Mark Craig of the Star Tribune swung by the Blue Door Pub Studios to chat a little Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings and discuss his new book 100 Things Vikings Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die. We dove into a few of those 100 items: What made Cris Carter great from a young age, how grizzled Bud Grant was to his players (even during leisure time), the 2009 Brett Favre Carnival, covering the Adrian 296 game, the tragic passing of Korey Stringer, and much more.

Mark and I also got into how this 2016 Vikings team is different than other great Purple squads, if Sam Bradford can continue his high level of play, some Xavier Rhodes appreciation, how Stan Kroenke was gracious enough to let Mark use the TCF Bank Stadium media bathroom, a few anecdotes about Hall of Fame voting (Mark is one of the 46 voters), why Randy Moss was the best/worst interview, and stories about his days of covering the Cleveland Browns before they — you know — moved.

All that and other “Belichick was WORSE with the media in Cleveland” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The Minnesota Vikings versus New New York Giants matchup this Monday night certainly has the making of an exciting game on the regular season’s biggest stage.

There is plenty of cautious optimism floating around the Vikings fan base following their 3-0 start and today we tonight we take a look around the web at everything being written and said about our favorite team.

Before we dive into that, however, I want to remind you all that our own Brett Anderson has been very busy designing some pretty sweet Vikings Territory t-shirts that should be of interest to all Vikings fans. Be sure to CLICK HERE to check out everything that is available so far!

Waking up on Friday morning, it seemed like it would be just like any other Friday that could not go by quick enough in order to begin the weekend. But for people within the NFL community, Friday began with the unexpected news of the passing of former Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals head coach Dennis Green as a result of cardiac arrest.

The Mortiz Boehringer (aka Mortiz Böhringer) story continues as the NFL will allow Borat to rock the umlaut on his uniform this season. He’s still a long-shot to make the roster and the feel-good story is over (Mike Zimmer said so, not me), but he’ll still be a fan favorite in Mankato for training camp. Plus if he makes a few plays, the fans will be like “Öööööööööööööhhhhhhh!”
