Not wanting to be outdone by Audie Cole, rookie highlight reel, several other Minnesota Vikings recently donned some of the ugliest Christmas sweaters and outfits you could imagine while attending a recent Holiday party. The party was noted as being primarily for the Vikings' offensive line group (including Matt Kalil, seen above), but additional photos (those seen after the jump) seem to show tight end Kyle Rudolph also in attendance. My sleuthing tells me that while Rudolph isn't TECHNICALLY an offensive linemen, he probably still gets a little bit of leeway to attend these type of parties because he often will play so close to the line of scrimmage, and because he has shown the capacity to dress up in goofy outfits before. How can you leave someone like that out?  And while Matt Kalil's sweater-vest-thing is certainly impressive in it's ugliness, the BEST sweater of the night didn't go to him, no anyone who celebrates Christmas, for that matter.   BOOM. Your Christmas loving dog **** can go straight to the moon, Sally. Don't even begin to discuss holiday sweaters until you see your man Geoff Schwartz bust out a Chanukah sweater. Look at that glorious thing, all Menorah-y and Jewy. He wears the Star of David like a utility belt at the bottom of the sweater, and someone even took the time to knit out "Happy Chanukah" in what appears to be a Comic Sans font. Now THAT is attention to detail! On the other side of the spectrum though, we have John Sullivan and Kyle Rudolph just throwing Christmas all up in Schwartz's face. These two decided to completely forego the sweaters and went straight for the outfits. Sullivan dressed up as Santa while Rudolph went as an elf. I'm not sure what is worse, here. Is Sullivan trying to say he's a jolly, old fat guy? I thought we already got rid of Steve Hutchinson? And did Rudolph pick the elf because it kind of looks like a leprechaun from Notre Dame? I mean, I GUESS, but that's a bit of a stretch. And did they both purposefully buy the outfits a size to small to show off their barrel chests? Because I totally would too. Regardless, some of our favorite Vikings certainly went on to have a happy holiday party, and if anything, it should be incentive for you to do the same. So get your egg nog ready, and let's hope we get an early Christmas (or Chanukah!) gift on Sunday with a win over the Texans. Ho Ho Ho-no! [follow]
