Man, it's pretty amazing what the start of Training Camp can do to the Vikings' blogosphere, isn't it? The Beloved Purple hit the field in helmets, shoulder pads, and shorts, and all of a sudden things begin, as the kids say, "blowing up in the hizzy."
(Do kids today still say "hizzy?" I hope so, for the sake of that last sentence if nothing else.)
But yes, we do have a bunch of different stories for your perusal this fine Sunday evening. Hit the jump and we will hook you up!
