Bump & Run: Football Begins [VIDEO]

Football’s back, and it’s time to party. We bring you this special season preview episode of Bump & Run to call for an end to offseason bickering and lay out my reasons for positivity heading into Week 1.

The Vikings are a good team, and there’s no reason we shouldn’t have happy thoughts about 2017 (aside from decades of Vikings-related heartbreak, but…hey, what do you do?). In the end, we’re all Vikings fans, and the season opener marks the occasion when we must put lay down our #TeamGloves and #TeamSleeves affiliations (and tridents), and operate as one. For that, my friends, is the path to true fan enlightenment.

With love,

Hi Fran. Brett and I sold VT back in July. The new owner, Joe Johnson, plans to change almost nothing and Brett and I will still be around.

Sold VT? Well I’ll be darned. I hope you guys got a good payday! I kind of feel like maybe me and Fran, Cal… Ole, BJohnny, Tomb (and any other old timers who are still around, haven’t heard from Coach in a while) should at least get a T-shirt out of the deal.

CC, that’s an excellent idea. God knows, we made Adam what he is today. Do you need my address for the T-shirt Adam?

Fellas! You’re correct in that we didn’t announce it, as we really didn’t think it’d be of interest to many as long as the team keeps kicking out the awesome content that they do.

As far as reasons, it’s kind of complicated in that there’s no single reason… in short, though, Brett and I wanted to be plain old Vikings fans again. We wanted to enjoy game days without the stresses/guilt/expectations we placed on ourselves to manage the site.

You bet I owe you guys shirts! Email me sizes and addresses!

Sam, love your work. By the way, I am always happy. Of course, I am not the typical Vikings fan.

Did you notice that in the last year, the Vikings remade their QB depth chart from top to bottom?

New Starting QB: Bradford
New Backup QB: Keenum
New QB of the Future: Sloter

Sure, there are still some spare parts from the previous QB depth chart laying around. If memory serves, they are parked on IR and PUP. One of them might yield a seventh round pick. We probably won’t get anything for the one whose leg almost falls off.

Peterson comes back this week, and reminds us why the Vikings sent him a text at 1 AM saying they wanted nothing to do with him.

Signed,

Team Sleeves

Whose leg almost falls off? Nice. I’m hopeful Sammy can move the chains better this year, and finally make a postseason appearance. A better run game is necessary, so is getting 1st downs on 3rd and 7.
But if we’re sitting at 4-4 and I’m Mike Zimmer? Teddy could be ready… and he’s a winner.
Team Gloves!
