That’s BYU 4-star defensive end recruit Troy Hinds and NFL legend Brett Favre in some Mississippi garage where Hinds did his Mormon missionary duty by tracking down the Gunslinger for a conversion. It’s been about 10 days since we last spotted Favre doing church work by firing dodgeballs at opponents in some Baptist church tourney.
Now comes word that Hinds (6-5, 23rd rated DE in 2012 by Scout.com) had a meeting. Is this a sign from God? Is Favre converting and thinking about taking on extra wives?
Hinds has since deleted, or changed, his Twitter account name, but our friends at Vanquish The Foe fill in the details on the Troy Hinds-Favre meeting.
Brett Favre is not the new Steve Martin. Let’s not start any Favre is LDS rumors. Troy was able to meet him and chat football and church. :)

That’s sad news.
How great would a Brett Favre Sister Wives be? Imagine Favre managing Deanna and four sorority-like Mormons as they try to avoid the Mormon Sheriff Department and keep their family together through sexting scandals.

Now that the 2012 season is over, the Minnesota Vikings and their fans have turned their attention to the 2013 NFL Draft. This week was the first step in that long process, as many college players are showcasing themselves (with shirts on, apparently, which will do them ABSOLUTELY no good, I promise you) for various NFL teams in hopes of being drafted at the Senior Bowl.
Lauded sports journalist source, The Onion, has broken an exclusive story about one of the Minnesota Vikings - and the NFL's - most popular players, running back Adrian Peterson.
In a statement released this week, Peterson has confirmed that in order to be prepared for the 2013 NFL season, ready to come back better than ever and not only break Eric Dickerson's single...
No, silly, not a DALLAS Cowboy (Although I wouldn't really mind if he was), I'm talking about a real Cowboy. A Western, gun totin', cowboy boot wearing, Django Unchained lookin', steer wrastlin' Cowboy. Jerome Simpson, Minnesota Vikings receiver (for the time being, anyway) has developed a surprising affliction for the rustic wear.
And I have no real idea...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Blair Walsh acclimated quickly in his rookie season for the Minnesota Vikings. Turns out he understood quickly how to uphold tradition as well.
Walsh, the sixth-round draft pick last year by Minnesota, set several team and league records in his first season for the Vikings and was named the NFC's Pro Bowl kicker. But Walsh also wanted to recognize one of...
The physical gifts that allowed Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to return better than ever from major knee surgery apparently run in the family.
Peterson, in Hawaii for his fifth Pro Bowl, told NFL.com that comparisons can't be made between his return from torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee and the recovery ahead for dynamic...
Have you been in the market for a late 1980s limo with class, style, functionality and a hint of flair? Are you a Packers fan? We have the car of your dreams. Just look at this 1988 Cadillac Fleetwood that’s a piece of football history.
You are looking at the ‘Legend of Lambeau’ limo that was reportedly used by the Brett Favre family to transport them from their homes in Mississippi...
ST. PAUL, Minn. Kyle Rudolph's breakthrough season has earned him a trip to the Pro Bowl.
Rudolph, the Minnesota Vikings' second-year tight end, was named to the NFC team Tuesday, replacing the Atlanta Falcons' Tony Gonzalez, who won't play due to injury.
Rudolph was Minnesota's second-round pick in 2011 and developed into one of the top receiving options for...
Chad Greenway’s nomination for the Byron “Whizzer” White Award might not seem like much, but the backstory on White shows its significance.
As the Packers and Colts moved on without Brett Favre (2008) and Peyton Manning (2012), their moves affected numerous franchises over the next several years, and it’s still having an effect on the Super Bowl.
As Vikings fans wait for the announcement of the NFL MVP in 10 days, the debate is still out there on who will win it. Will it be Adrian Peterson or Peyton Manning? We approach the debate from a different angle.
When it was discovered that Washington Redskins quarterback
Robert Griffin III sustained an injury similar to the one Minnesota Vikings
running back Adrian Peterson endured prior to his monster 2012 campaign, the
comparisons started pouring in. However, Peterson told reporters, including
Andy Fenelon of NFL.com, that it’s not fair to compare the injuries of the two
Sports fans and media consumers everywhere used to joke that every time Brett Favre moved, sneezed, went to the bathroom or even breathed- ESPN’s Rachel Nichols was there. I’m speaking of course about Favre’s three year period in which he retired/unretired 1,298 times and held the media and fan bases of the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets hostage.
