Viking Training Camp

The Star Tribune lists five things to watch for in Viking training camp.

In my mind, there's only one thing to watch for: Brad Childress' goatee. Why is it? How long will it exist? Will it grow fuller? Are goatees now ruined forever? Did Childress go away this offseason to a hermitage and come back a new, enlightened man? Is Childress choosing a new identity? See, I don't think I could really be an NFL reporter. I would repeatedly ask questions about the interview subject's hair and facial hair.

    I read somewhere he had a full beard but then shaved down to a goatee. That thing looks crazy bushy in the video of him riding around in the F-18 Hornet.

  2. Anonymous3:20 PM, actually. go to the video index, click on the "teams" tab, and select the minnesota vikings (on the far left). it should be one of the first videos on the list.

    he passes out for a couple seconds, it's a pretty funny video.

  3. no more Major Dad? *sob*

  4. The Goatee gives him something to stroke while contemplating his play calling.Hopefully it will help him make easier decisons as to wether to keep AP in game or not.
