Just a few things here as I wrap up a fairly busy weekend at the Gonzo house.
-If any of you are in the Denver, CO area, I should be having something printed in a publication called The Daily Warbler, an arts and culture broadsheet serving the Denver metro area. They have an upcoming issue about Vikings (the Scandinavian kind), and asked me to put together a little something comparing and contrasting the olden day Vikings with the version we love to talk about here.
So, in a few days, I'll officially be a published author. Hooray for me!
-As you might have seen over in the FanPost section, a young Vikings fan named Apryl from Palm Beach, Florida, is trying to win a wedding from a CBS affiliate down there. You can vote for her by going to the link above there. The couple has some catching up to do, but let's see if we can't give them a push anyway.
-Darrell Bevell is impressed with the Vikings' QBs thus far. So sayeth Grandpa Sports.
-Apparently ESPN is going to be sending a lot of people to Lambeau Field to watch the Packers get curbstomped by the Vikings in the 2008 season opener.
Then again, with ESPN sending so much of their crew to Wisconsin. . .and ESPN still actually being located in Connecticut. . .lord only knows what sort of vortex of suck that could potentially create. Might end up looking like something out of Poltergeist out there.
-KFAN.com has a bunch of Vikings interviews on their site from the past few weeks. I've been listening to them on and off through the course of the weekend.
-Jared Allen is on the cover of the latest Sporting News, and there's a pretty good article on him on their website.
-Finally, a Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there. Most of our fathers are the ones responsible for getting us into football, and we wouldn't be here now without them. May the neckties you receive actually go with some of your shirts.
That's all for today, folks. . .tomorrow, we get back into the roster projection, including one executive decision that I've made that will change things up a little bit. Until then, have a good one, everybody!
