There were two potential outcomes to this season's MVP voting, the results of which were revealed tonight: The sportswriters that vote on the thing could have made a grievous error, as sportswriters so often do, and awarded Peyton Manning the MVP award (as sportswriters so often have), for reasons related to team… » 2/02/13 10:10pm 2/02/13 10:10pm

Friends Successfully Use Twitter To Get Adrian Peterson To Call High…

At least, it appears they succeeded. The friend with cancer, Blake Cognata, is a senior lacrosse player from Fairport, NY who is also Minnesota Vikings fan.

Adrian Peterson Wants To Return Kickoffs And Block Field Goals On…

When The Game Became The Game: An Afternoon With A Deranged,…

I was giving my eight-month-old baby a bath on Saturday night when I started to space out. In my head, I was giving Vikings QB Christian Ponder an imaginary pep talk.
