It's been a fantastic Labor Day Weekend for Minnesota sports teams. In fact, its been a pretty good run for us over the last couple of weeks. The Indians finally stepped on the Twins throats and ended their season. The Gopher football team lived up to the hype and lost to Bowling Green. And the Vikings are getting the roster finalized as they ramp up for their first game of the season next Sunday against the Falcons.
Another key addition to the Super Bowl run was added when the Vikings picked up Tight End Garrett Mills from New England. Don't know who he is? That's okay, we don't either. But, prior to the pre-season, we hadn't heard of Naufahu Tahi, Chase Johnson, or Jayme Mitchell -- and they all somehow made the final roster.
Let's trust Coach Quiet for at least the first half of the season. While he's obviously not a big X's and O's kind of coach, maybe he knows something about personnel?
Plus, he's started a wonderful trend of referring to himself as "Chill" during radio interviews. That kind of humor is hard to ignore. Maybe referring to himself in the third person will help. It can't hurt, right?
