Vikings-Related Programming Note

Just wanted to make sure I passed this all along to you, in case you wanted to see it.

It might be on a bit late for those of you that have to work on Friday morning (which I do not. . .w00t), but if you stay up until 11 PM Eastern/10 PM Central and turn your television to Spike TV, you'll be able to see an episode of their show Pros vs. Joes featuring former Minnesota Vikings' great John Randle.

If you're unfamiliar with the concept of Pros vs. Joes, it works a little something like this.  Three different guys off the street with some athletic ability. . .usually guys that were some sort of athletes in high school or at the small college levels. . .are selected to appear on the show.  These guys are the "Joes."  They take on the "Pros," former professional athletes in various sports.  In the case of this evening's show, Randle will be featured along with former Major League Baseball pitcher John Franco and former National Basketball Association star Mitch Richmond.

It's the job of the "Joes" to, basically, beat the Pros at their own game.  Having to hit major league baseball pitchers, score X number of baskets against basketball players, and so on.  I'm not sure what Randle will be doing, exactly, but the episode is entitled "John Randle Bloodies Some Joes," so I'm guessing that, whatever it is, it's not going to be pretty for the other guys.

So, yeah, check it out.  11 PM Eastern/10 PM Central on Spike TV.
