Lindsey Young: On The Lives Of Viking Wives
If I had my way, each and every one of our writers would soon find themselves with high-paying writing jobs at large, reputable media outlets. In my eyes, each of them deserve it.
Lindsey Young, whose work caught my eye well before Vikings Territory existed, certainly seems to be on the right path.
Lindsey recently wrote an article for KSTP Channel 5 that couldn’t have come at a better time, as the NFL world has been rocked by the Ray Rice scandal, and we could use a feel-good story or ten to remind us that it isn’t all bad.
Lindsey’s article is everything we’ve grown to expect from her: Professional, insightful, and thorough. She dives into the lives of three Minnesota Vikings and gives us some perspective as to how their profession impacts their family life. The wives of Greg Jennings, Josh Robinson, and Zach Line were each featured.
Here is an excerpt of the article, but to read the rest you are going to have to CLICK HERE.
Football wives are much more than fans. Nicole Jennings explains how wives take the game so much more seriously than the rest of the world. In her mind, it is not about wins and losses or the number of receiving yards beside her husband’s name.
“My overall interest is in making sure he walks off that field the same way he walked on,” Nicole Jennings said. “In my eyes, nothing else matters.”
Of course, no one likes to see an injury, but most do not understand the family’s sideline perspective. NFL players hear more news every year regarding the risk of concussions, their side effects, and, most recently, the long-term consequences associated with an injury prevalent on the football field.
Well done, Lindsey, keep it up.
