Football Tonight!*

* - Not really football. . .just a scrimmage.

Scout.com has a story about tonight's scrimmage with the Kansas City Chiefs.  This used to be a regular occurence during training camp between these two teams. . .then a couple years ago, Dick Vermiel declared that one of the Vikings' defensive backs (Rushen Jones) should be shot in the head because he dared to make a tackle during a tackle football practice.  Vermiel then fell to the ground and cried like Nancy Kerrigan, as he was prone to do.

It'll be nice to see what kind of stories, if any, come out of this scrimmage tonight.  We're a little more than a week away from the first "real" pre-season game, but this should prove interesting, if nothing else.
