Anybody else feeling hype?
I wrote an article on Blair Walsh and why he's better than people criticizing him think he is.
The Vikings and Packers got their superlatives in a recent Fallon show.
Eric has officially informed us that he would like to be referred to solely as Kenny from now on. Oh and I guess he did a preview/picks for this week's games.
Skol Girl has some helpful information for people looking to access the stadium in its first test on Sunday.
Around the Horns:
/u/BrownianNotion took a look at what Charles Johnson brought to the table as a receiver last Sunday.
Stefon Diggs is the Vikings' top offensive weapon. Anthony Barr's doing work in the community. Sam Bradford was once again taking first-team snaps in the media-open portion of today's practice. Judd Zulgad seems pretty sure that Bradford will be the starter on Sunday.
Adam Houck takes a look at the All-22 tape to see what he can learn before the Packers game.
NBC's got a pretty killer hype video for the Vikings/Packers game on Sunday night.
The Minnesota Vikings are now worth $2.2 billion as a franchise.
One of the members of the Vikings World Order was recently arrested in a massive drug bust.
Swords from the Opposing Hordes:
Hue Jackson was apparently very focused on making RG3 work as his quarterback.
Apparently Russell Wilson doesn't understand how the human body heals itself.
Before last night's game, Joe Namath and Joe Kelly took some time to trash talk each other.
Case Keenum was seeing ghosts in Monday's late game. Probably visions of the Greatest Show on Turf coming back to haunt those offensively-challenged buggers.
Giants fullback Nikita Whitlock has been suspended for 10 games in violation of the performance enhancing substances policy.
Minnesota Twins update:
They seem to be putting in a last-ditch effort to not lose 100 games, as they defeated the Tigers 5-1 in Detroit. Hector Santiago received the win, Mike Pelfrey (yeah, that Mike Pelfrey) took the loss, and Brian Dozier extended his hitting streak to 19 games. The Twins continue their road trip this evening as they take on the current owners of the NL's second wild card, the New York Mets. First pitch is at 6:10 Central.
And I found this particularly enjoyable video on the Vikings subreddit and thought it would be worth a share. And no, it's not what it looks like. Well, kinda.
