There is no doubt that when the NFL free agency frenzy begins tonight, the Minnesota Vikings will be busy!

There are also rumors that the Vikings will cut ties with back-up quarterback Kelly Holcomb. Let's hope we can pick up someone else on the market.

Remember the Dwight Smith stairwell incident? That was an interesting water cooler day. I worked in Hudson at the time and we used to kid around with one of the 24 year old office girls that it was her in the stairwell with Smith!
Smith will become an unrestricted free agent and the Vikings did right by him by giving him enough notice to seek out other teams. Brad Childress says the Vikings are "going in a different direction." Let’s hope that means they are going to try and win more than 8 games . . . wouldn’t that be a nice direction to go in?

Vikings Vixen is no Vikings football expert. I have definite opinions on the intricate and not so intricate operations of the Minnesota Vikings, but I am no football expert. I know that the NFL Free Agency frenzy will begin February 29th and that will mean players moving to and fro, but I often get lost in all the jargon (unrestricted, restricted, etc.) Most of the time I don’t really care, I just want to know who is going to be on the roster so I can review their Wikipedia profile - ha ha.
Apparently, other Vikings fans get lost in the terminology as well because our friends over at Vikings.com did a story on it. Check it out if you have questions on the three types of agents (free, unrestricted and restricted) or if you want to know about the salary cap calculations. Let me be honest, I read the article, but it was hard to digest and I like math.

Besides the Viking team was 8-8 last year, if it wasn’t for Adrian Peterson, I doubt Vikings fans would come to the Dome at all. This Vikings Vixen will have to think long and hard about which games I am willing to pay money to see. There is no way I could afford Vikings season tickets, but I like to get tickets to a few of the big games and local ticket broker, Ticket King, always has seats. Boy, the increase of face value will definitely affect the scalpers bottom line as well . What were the Vikings thinking?

Minnesota Vikings superstar rookie Adrian Peterson made a good showing for the purple in Hawaii winning MVP after rushing for 129 yards and two touchdowns in the NFC’s 42-30 victory. Peterson joined Marshall Faulk as the only rookies to be voted MVP of the Pro Bowl. Peterson flew in his offensive line so they could spend the weekend with him in Hawaii and from the rumors around town they all had a great time…I wonder how many are married? Anyway, Adrian Peterson won a big shiny trophy and shiny new Cadillac that he intends to keep.
"Can I top this?" Peterson said, "Yeah, you always set your bar high."
How about the playoffs next year, Mr. Peterson? How about the playoffs?!?!!?

I noticed there were a lot of animal commercials as well (dogs, horses, pigeons), but we all learned in Marketing 101 that babies and puppies are guaranteed to help sell products. My second favorite was the Will Ferell minor league basketball commercial and then the Bud Light commercial where they said Suck It – that was laugh out loud funny, too.
I also like the Pepsi Justin Timberlake commercial – I was a little irritated by the sucking noise, but once I understood what was going on, it was pretty clever. How about all the rest of the Vikings fans out there – what were your favorite Super Bowl Commercials? And how much did MySpace pay to be the exclusive one stop shop for viewing all the ads? Dang it, Tom – you have too much money! I am not linking to you!

Move of the game? Hands down, when Eli Manning escaped the clutches of the Patriots defense, ran out of the pocket and completed the pass. I was on my feet cheering over that move. Way to go New York Giants! Congrats on being the Super Bowl Champions! We will see you at the Metrodome in 2008!
