Little Weekend Blizzard

Do you realize there are only two more football-less Sundays left? Enjoy them as much as you can. Of course football Sundays are 5,000% more fun than non-football Sundays (I'm not using hyperbole: 5,000% might even be a low estimate), but we should try to use our last two lazy open Sundays for pleasant activities.

Anyway, here are a few interesting or amusing things to call to your attention this weekend.

Don Seeholzer of the Pioneer Press says that "exactly how the Vikings plan to deploy their new running back rotation is still largely a mystery." It's true: not a one of us knows exactly what Childress' plans are for Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor. I wouldn't be shocked by anything week one.

The Ghosts of Wayne Fontes has an amusing post on fantasy football: "The League Manifesto: The Do's and the Do Not's."

18 to 88 has a really creative, entertaining NFL preview comparing the NFL to Star Wars (via Football Outsiders). If you're going to use this trope of comparing sports to pop culture, use it well; this one is really fun.

And finally, some features for vegetarian sports fans. PETA ranks vegetarian friendly baseball parks (via Serious Dismay), and Ladies... has advice on making vegetarian options for a football party.
