I apologize for the lack of "action" around these parts for the last couple of days. . .Mrs. Gonzo had some surgery on Friday morning that's going to have her on the disabled list for a bit. However, everything went well and she's resting comfortably here at home, and since yours truly has the next week or so off while she is recovering, things should pick back up to their normal pace starting tomorrow.
So, for now, it's time for another Vikings' highlight video go bridge the gap into tomorrow, and this one will give us the longest rushing play in the history of the Minnesota Vikings. . .a play that does not belong to Adrian Peterson or Chuck Foreman or Michael Bennett, but to Chester Taylor. Taylor was pretty much the only highlight of the Vikings' offense in the first year of the Brad Childress regime, and this particular play was the highlight of Taylor's season.
Things were looking up for the Vikings after this one in 2006, as the victory over the Seahawks pushed their record to 4-2 at that point. Then, Tom Brady came into the Metrodome on a Monday night, showed the entire world that the Vikings' defense had absolutely, positively no way of stopping the pass, and the Vikings lost eight of their last ten to finish with a 6-10 record.
But we wound up with Adrian Peterson out of that deal. . .so, it seems like a fair exchange.
Back to the normal pace tomorrow, ladies and gentlemen. . .enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
