    Feeling Minnesota

    This friday nights openning preseason match up in Minneapolis between the Rams and the Minnesota Vikings is sure to be played with heavy hearts and mixed emotions as the twin cities continues to deal with the collapsed bridge tragedy.

    Hopefully the Rams can come to town, put on a good exhibition and take everyones mind off a bad situation, if only for a few hours. (No word as if yet, if this game will be cancelled, scheduled for Friday August 10, 2007 8pm, at the MetroDome.)

    As for the Vikings, they are lead by their 2nd year Head coach Brad Childress, who finished his 1st season with a (6-10) record last year.
    The last time Childress and the Vikings faced the Saint Louis Rams at the MetroDome was last years season finally on New Years Eve, the Rams won 41-21 to finish with an (8-8) record for their 2nd year Head coach Scott Linehan.

    These are not your Fathers Minnesota Vikings......Who are these guys?
    Where's Randy?, Where's Culpepper?, Where's Chris Carter?, Where's Coach Green Or Mike Tice with that pencil sticking from his ear? And what's the latest on that 'Love Boat' scandal?
    The only recognizable player associated with the Vikings is Tight End Jim Kleinsasser.
    First round draft pick Adrian Peterson could start his NFL experience against the Rams, although he is listed as questionable with a hip pointer.

    Tarvaris Jackson and Brooks Bollinger are fighting for the Vikings starting job at QB.
    Chester Taylor is a decent running back for the Vikes, who finished with 1,216 yards rushing, averaging 4.0 yards a carry with 6 TDs.
    Long time Green Bay Packer Ryan Longwell is now the Vikings Kicker.

    Zygi Wilf is the owner of Minnesota Vikings in his 2nd year.

    In the recent collapsed bridge tragedy in Minneapolis, not far from the MetroDome, the death toll stands at 5 with over 100 injured and 8 still missing.
    The Saint Louis Rams will be returning this city, since last years finally, with no doubt, condolences for the victims and definitely feeling for MINNESOTA.

    Cancelled? The Twins have now played an entire SERIES at the dome since the bridge collapse. This game has about as much chance of being cancelled as all the others next weekend...next to NONE.

    Wasn't sure, can't wait to get the season started! Good to hear that the show will go on despite the recent tragedies.

    If nothing else, our defense should hopefully be able to start out well against two QB's with very little starting experience and little polish.
