I will be in Mankato for the Opening Ceremonies tonight and for practice on Saturday and most likely Sunday. If any of you are members of the Vikings Fan Club, I'll be in the VIP Tent to watch the morning practice. Can't wait to get things started!!

Well, I just got back to the motel. Some of the girls at Mettler's were HOT tonight. (If you guys come to training camp, you have to stop by Mettler's at night. My friend from MN took me there a long time ago. It's very tit-tilating and its a great time).

As for the Vikings, I went to the opening ceremonies on Friday night and for Saturday's morning practice. I had the opportunity to speak very briefly with Red McCombs and get his autograph. The only player I got an autograph from so far was Kelly Campbell. I could have probably gotten some autographs Friday night but many of the players were in a hurry to get back to the dorm (which is fine with me). But Culpepper, Bennett and Udeze signed a few for the fans before leaving.

At the Opening Ceremony, Coach Tice said the team only has two goals. The first is to win the NFC North and the second ,of course, is to win the Super Bowl. I really believe that the 2004 Vikings are very serious in meeting these goals. :D

Yep, Tim, I am now a proud season ticket holder!! I plan on making it up for the preseason game against the f***in' Cardinals. I expect that the Vikings will show Mr. Poole what hole he can stick his Key to GB in..lol.

Speaking of the Packers, I noticed there are several GB fans around here. I guess they realize that our Vikes are going to be the Super Bowl Champs so they came out to see them in action. They are also helping the Mankato economy. The Cheeseheads aren't all bad. Most of them are good people. They're just a bit misguided. But its good to see them come to terms with the reality that this is the year of the Vikings!

Did they actually admit that its our year. I can tell you for one thing that i prolly would never tell a packer fan its their year to win it all or even the divison.

Good report on training camp thought. Hope to hear about more later on.

This is my last day in Mankato and I will be there for the afternoon practice. Yesterday was a good day and for where I was standing I got a good look at the O and D lines. They were working on positioning and movement (DL with the DL and OL with the OL). I also did pretty well with getting some more autographs from Moe Williams, Darren Bennett, Mike Tice, Michael Bennett and one of the players I wanted to see the most, Corey Chavous. I told Corey that he was awesome last season and he told me thanks and that this season he will be even better. That was my personal highlight of training camp. Hopefully, I can have a moment with Hovan and Culpepper but even if I don't it was great seeing some of my favorite players. Also, concerning Darren Bennett, the punter who is from Down Under, he was really first class. But I hear most Aussies are the most friendliest people on Earth.

Also I just read on www.vikings.com that Thomas has been signed. It looks like this will be a huge year for the Viking Nation.
