Man, Vikes players just can't stay out of the news. Between track meets with Everson Griffen, bike rides with Chris Cook, and history lectures with AP, we had an offseason to remember and we're still six weeks away from the draft.
The fun never stops in Minny, though...
Apparently Sidney Rice wanted in on the action with this little nugget:
John Marzulli of the New York Daily News reports that Rice’s name recently arose in federal court, during a trial involving a woman named Winsome White, who allegedly used stolen credit card numbers to purchase airline tickets sold at reduced cost. Her boyfriend, Ashley Simmons, already has pleaded guilty.
A witness testified that Rice flew numerous times with tickets purchased by the stolen credit card numbers.
Rice has not been arrested or charged, and there’s no reason to currently believe he was aware of the scam.
I know we don't know all the facts -- perhaps Rice bought them 'legitimately' (...is there an eBay for plane tickets I don't know about...??).
Honestly though, where is the camel?? I have some straw I need to test out.
