VIDEO: Chris Kluwe calls out Vikings on MSNBC

Minnesota-Vikings-mike-zimmer

Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is one of the most outspoken players in the history of the NFL. The avid marriage equality and gay rights advocate has as much a social conscience as anyone to ever play the game. From gun control to civil rights, Kluwe is somebody who almost always has something meaningful to say.

X-Factors for the Packers and Vikings playoff game at Lambeau

dujuan harris

There’s a lot of bad blood between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings who took part in two of the better regular season match-ups this year.

Green Bay won the first round back in early December and this past week the Vikings took round two to earn a shot at a third and final round.

With elimination on the table it would be easy to say superstars Adrian Peterson or Aaron Rodgers will be the difference, but that’s a bit too easy.

Here are some of the lesser known players who will be the x-factors in Saturday night’s rumble in Green Bay. [Read more…]

The Chicago Cubs Brass is on the California Grass … Golf Grass!!

A bunch of the boys are whoopin’ it up in the desert made famous by Frank and his friends. A rollicking happy place where the scotch flows and the golf courses never end. A land of breathtaking mornings and gorgeous nights. A world where the stars shine brighter than spotlights.

And finally, and most impactful for many … a town where the women are so eager because most of the other men are “gay, gray or leaving on Tuesday.”

Yes, welcome to the California desert. It’s nice to be there.

Oh, wait. They went to Palm Springs to talk about baseball. Riiiigggghhhhttt.

Percy Harvin wants Vikings to trade him

percy_harvin

The Minnesota Vikings aren’t exactly the best NFL when it comes to depth at wide receiver. And further depleting that depth isn’t the best way to help a young quarterback in Christian Ponder develop further. But nonetheless Percy Harvin wants out of the twin cities.

The Associated Press‘ Jon Krawczynski appears to have first reported this in a tweet.

Who do Minnesota Vikings Draft at #3 Overall?

vikings

Everyone knows Andrew Luck is going first overall to the Indianapolis Colts. When his name is called on draft day it will be as big a surprise as the day former Menudo member and late ’90s pop star Ricky Martin officially came out of the closet.

The real draft begins at number two. And gets more interesting at number three and so on.

What will the Vikings do? With Christian Ponder, last year’s #1 pick under center, I can’t see them going quarterback. Yes, he has a lot to learn, and a long way to go to reach that ceiling, but he’s the future. Also, Matt Barkley decided to stay in school, and I believe if you can’t get Luck or Barkley, than the Vikes might as well stay with the girl they brought to the dance. Robert Griffin III and Landry Jones are fine prospects, but I don’t think they’ll punt on Ponder for those guys.

New Year’s Resolutions for the Minnesota Vikings

adrian peterson

A season that didn’t seem to be able to get any worse just did during the Christmas Eve game against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field. Not only did the Vikings come out of the contest victorious, but franchise running back Adrian Peterson tore his ACL and MCL. Happy holidays to the purple people eaters. For those of you who are thinking that the injury isn’t a big deal because of the timing, consider the recovery. These are two severe injuries that require extensive rehabilitation. The treatment will be both physical and psychological for AP. It is not even certain if the recovery will be fully to his previous condition.

What we do know is that he is expected to make a full recovery in time for opening day 2012. He should be 100% by sometime in the early-mid preseason.

It’s that time of year where all of us vow to cut out those midnight snacks and work out more.

If I spent half as much time exercising as watching other people play sports, I’d be on a commercial for GNC. The Minnesota Vikings certainly have some resolutions that need to be adhered to in order to avoid the sub-par play fans have witnessed throughout the last two seasons.

Vikings Expect Adrian Peterson Back for 2012 Opener

adrian peterson

The Minnesota Vikings fully expect their franchise running back Adrian Peterson to be 100% recovered from the two torn ligaments in his left knee by the the 2012 season rolls around.

Peterson tore both his ACL and MCL when he was hit in the side of the knee by Washington Redskins safety DeJon Gomes in Saturday’s 33-26 win at Washington. Yes, I know that was just BRUTAL to watch. An MRI revealed the ligament tears and meniscus damage.
