So as I was looking around these vast interwebs for news on the Minnesota Vikings yesterday, I saw a couple of the bits of wisdom from a Twitter account known as "STrib Comments." Apparently these are real, actual comments from folks on the Star-Tribune website about various sports in the Twin Cities. (Honestly, if you're on Twitter, you need to be following this. It's high comedy.) In this case, they were talking about the Vikings and what was going on at mini-camp. . .or, rather, their perceptions of what's going on at mini-camp.
In keeping with the tradition that the most popular player on the Minnesota Vikings roster is (insert name of a quarterback that isn't the starter here), apparently our own Teddy Bridgewater is already a bust.
"Vikings are taking their time hoping that Teddy Bustwater will hit a growth spurt in his hands to actually hold a football."
"Just look at his picture. Bridgewater has the arms and legs of a twelve year old girl."
People have said these things. Out loud. Where other adults can read them.
So, for all the folks that might have this sort of idea in their head. . .in June. . .allow me to help you a bit with the help of that most Minnesotan of television programs.
Somewhere at Winter Park
Coaches want to see what they can do.
Did not want Teddy B. (La la la)
About the Vikings' new look "O." (La la la)

And, with that. . .man, I wish Training Camp would get here already.
