Vikings Logo Redesign Honors Our Ancestral Killers

Hey! It’s NFL logo redesigns! We haven’t done one of these for a while. Generally, most NFL logo redesigns you see are a little shoddy. It’s typically someone who wants to toss out the history of the NFL and re-make every team to look like they play in Canada or the XFL, or it’s some […]

Norv Turner Says Teddy Bridgewater Can Make Every Throw

Despite making some experts nervous pre-draft with a poor Pro Day workout, Teddy Bridgewater is proving to the Minnesota Vikings that he can indeed make every NFL throw needed. Questions were raised about whether or not Teddy Bridgewater was worth a top draft pick in the 2014 draft, when he showed up at his Louisville […]

Happy 4th of July to the GREATEST FANS IN AMERICA!!

Welcome to the SECOND GREATEST HOLIDAY DURING THE YEAR! Wait, what? Second greatest holiday? Well of course. Right after the first official Minnesota Vikings game of the year, a game in which they win, naturally. If they play the first game of the year and they lose, then I guess 4th of July is probably […]

Any Vikings Fans Love Big Sacks?

Is there anything better than watching a Minnesota Vikings game, and seeing just a huge, crushing sack? Just a sack that comes out of nowhere, hits someone right in the face, and drops ‘em low? That’s my favorite. Just a bunch of sweaty guys, looking for sacks. Chances are, that’s what your girlfriend likes about […]

Bridgewater Making Himself at Home Already?

Teddy Bridgerwater has officially been a Minnesota Viking for just under two months, but it’s already been clear that the young quarterback has made an impact. Not just on the team, either. Sure, he’s been stellar in rookie mini-camps and the Vikings’ spring Organized Team Activities, but the on-field impact is just touching the surface. […]

Biz Markie Raps “Nobody Beats the Vikes”

Is that Biz Markie in a Daunte Culpepper jersey?! You bet your ass! While the lyrics over the image indicate this is from his chorus guest appearance on a Jay-Z song, it’s a lot more fun to imagine him singing a Vikings song to the tune of “Nobody Beats the Biz” … [Verse 1] Yes, […]

Animal Cruelty Found in Wisconsin

ALERT: If you have the state of Wisconsin’s animal cruelty number, please list it in the comments and everyone call and report this awful, awful, Packers fan who is basically beating their dog.

Did Kevin Williams Die in the Vikings Eyes?

Literally the day I posted an article about how the Minnesota Vikings had reached out to their former defensive tackle, Kevin Williams, to possibly re-sign with them, he pretty much announced he was going to sign with the Seattle Seahawks instead. And I ended up looking like a dog’s butthole. However, what’s worse; looking like […]

Purple People Apparel: F*ck The P*ckers Shirt

Rarely do we feature an apparel item worth the consideration to purchase, but in this case, we might have to make an exception. This splendid “F*ck the P*ckers” shirt, posted to Reddit from a sweet Vikings bro, is sure to be a hot seller this fall, once the Vikings prove they may actually be good […]

Want to Stop Chicago Killings? Put a Bears Game On.

I’ll be honest here. I’m not quite sure how to interpret this recent Yahoo! Sports headline: “Chicago crime goes down during Bears games” OK. So, at face value, when the Chicago Bears play football games, there is less crime in the city of Chicago. That’s fairly significant, since – referencing a 2013 study – Chicago […]

If Ponder Played Shirtless, He Wouldn’t Be in This Situation

No one can make accusations that Minnesota Vikings fourth year quarterback, Christian Ponder, is delusional. And now, he vows to no longer play shirted. Ever since rookie mini-camps and Organized Team Activities began this past month, the team has been pushing the idea that Ponder is competing for the starting job alongside veteran incumbent Matt […]
