Ladies and gentlemen, it's official--we have arrived.
Arif and I are sitting here in the heart of the Minnesota Vikings Training Camp, at the media center in Pennington Hall on the campus of Minnesota State University-Mankato. As you'll see in the picture on the right, they gave us press passes and everything.
We're just under an hour away from the first practice of the week, a walk-thru scheduled from 10:30 - 11:30 AM. Leslie Frazier is scheduled to hold a press conference after that practice, and we'll try our best to get some sound bites from various Vikings players after the morning session.
But the biggest event on Monday's slate is what's on the agenda for the afternoon--the first fully-padded practice of the 2012 season!
Stay tuned for updates throughout the day here on Daily Norseman, the only Vikings blog here in Mankato. We'll be posting in between practices and after the late session, but for up-to-the-minute highlights and takes, be sure to follow Arif and I on Twitter:
If you have suggestions for players we should try to talk to or topics you want us to cover, let us know in the comments section below.
