On Wednesday, Minnesota Vikings' rookie wide receiver Laquon Treadwell reached that greatest of all ages, 21 years old. That means, if he so chooses, he can now indulge in adult beverages, among other things.
If he is planning on patronizing one of Minneapolis' many drinking establishments, at least he now has no excuse to go on an empty stomach.
In order to make the occasion a memorable one for young Laquon, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and tight end Kyle Rudolph decided that they would buy him some delicious fruit snacks. 60,000 bags worth of them.
Yes. Sixty. . .thousand. . .bags. They didn't bother having them delivered to his home, either.
I'm not sure if Laquon Treadwell has a thing for fruit snacks or not. If he doesn't, he might have to develop one.
Treadwell turned 21 today. If he were to eat one bag of fruit snacks with every meal (three a day) starting today, he would have enough fruit snacks to last him until the ripe old age of 75. Granted, I'm not sure what the expiration date on those things are. . .not sure if they're like Twinkies and would survive a nuclear winter or something similar. Hopefully he'll be doing a lot of sharing. . .or donating them to some sort of local cause.
Happy birthday to Laquon Treadwell! Thanks to a couple of his teammates, it doesn't look like he'll be forgetting it any time soon.
