Like I said, I won’t be devoting much virtual ink to the Minnesota Vikings this year. But…when your favourite football team blows out its Week 1 opponent (albeit an undermanned opponent with a new coach, a new quarterback and an offseason full of unprecedent controversy), scores two defensive touchdowns and gets an MVP-calibre performance from its first-round draft pick (Adrian Peterson, a.k.a. Purple Jesus, pictured left turning a near-fumble into a 60-yard touchdown reception), aren’t you sort of obligated to at least mention it?
The answer: of course you are. Minnesota could go 1-15 this year, but at least I got me an opening day to savour.
