Found May 21, 2013 on Purple Jesus Diaries:
Look at this god damn thing. It's a work of art. The deep purple, the kingly gold, the horizontal stripes. It's like whatever grandmother knitted this reached deep into my wet dreams and retrieved this from the ether to display it so finely on a weird ass mannequin. Not that I'm complaining. While I'd love to wear it, I will also gladly ogle it like a picture of Jennifer Lawrence in a bikini, because dat ass. Or, in other words, dat sweater. I regret to inform you I have no other real information about this sweater. I found it from our Pinterest page (yes, we do have one, and it's only like 74% filled with gay stuff) and while the original link from that post is down, we were able to track this piece of boner material down again, with it likely being the one on a user's page called "andyhaul." Looks similar, yes? I don't know if it's the same one or not, but it doesn't matter. This is apparently a Cliff Engle brand sweater, which is apparently a company that made sweaters that stimulated the clitoris directly, because look at that thing. If you do a Google Image search for "Cliff Engle Sweaters" you find an art gallery of work, rivaling that of the Louvre. So many vibrant colors, so many stripes. So much weird, erotic 1980's models. I feel like I'm watching scrambled HBO porn all over again. This Vikings one is particularly great for many of the same reasons why their classic throwback uniform is great, as well. The purple is an awesome shade of purple, the gold doesn't ***** foot around. The stenciled Vikings font is a classic 1980's look that screams "I'LL KILL YOUR CHILDREN" like only a Viking could, and of course THE STRIPES! Sweet Jesus, anything with stripes will make me weak in the knees, like college lined notebook paper, or braces. I wish the Vikings would just put these over their pads and play in them. That'd be awesome. So if anyone is looking for an idea of what to get me for ... I don't know ... Summer Solstice? You can add this one to the list. I'll make you my forever-lover. [follow]

Christian Ponder to Sign Stuff So I Can Give It To You

OK people, I'm not going to lie. This post is total corporate shill, but it's for a good cause. Namely, you may get free stuff out of it! And it's weird from my perspective, so we're totally rolling with it. Word around the burning Metrodome campfire is that Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder will be attending a grand re-opening of a Champs Sports location at...

Vikings have plan to get rookie Patterson involved

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. From the moment the Minnesota Vikings made perhaps the draft's biggest move by trading a bevy of picks to acquire Cordarrelle Patterson in the first round, they've talked about a "plan" for developing the talented, but raw receiver. Decision makers like general manager Rick Spielman and Leslie Frazier haven'tpubliclyspoken of details, instead...

Is Minnesota’s Christian Ponder the Rodney Dangerfield of NFL Quarterbacks?

Somehow, I know quite a few Minnesota Viking fans. A common trait they all share is their displeasure — bordering on embarassment — in regard to Minnesota’s starting quarterback, Christian Ponder. “We’d be fine if we had a better quarterback” is a phrase I’ve heard more than once from more than one disgruntled fan. I must be honest and say that I haven’t spent a lot...

Confident Childs creating illusion he'll be back in purple

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Working out at the team's facilities, Minnesota Vikings receiver Greg Childs smiles widely, displaying a supreme confidence and looking nothing like a player in the midst of an intense rehab from a potentially career-ending injury. Childs has always had that swagger, that confidence in himself and his physical gifts. It's one reason that he never doubted...

Vikings' secondary late to the 'Harlem Shake' party

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Apparently members of the Minnesota Vikings' secondary couldn't resist getting into the Harlem Shake craze, creating their own video of the dance that had become an internet sensation a few months ago. Of course, Minnesota's outspoken safety Jamarca Sanford is leading the way in this video, which appears to include safeties Harrison Smith, cornerback...

Vikings will rely on Rhodes to slow NFC North foes

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. For the past several years, the Minnesota Vikings have entered seasons with a preferred set of cornerbacks they believed could help them negate the pass-happy offenses in the NFC North. Inevitably, injuries hit and poor performance left the secondary among the biggest weak spots for Minnesota. The injuries became a yearly issue with players like Cedric Griffin...

Break Out Review: Kyle Rudolph

Over the course of the off-season we’ll be looking back at some of the major players who ‘broke out’ or outperformed their ADP by a drastic amount in the hopes that we can get a feel for what their 2013 fantasy football season holds and whether the break out is here to stay.  Today the review subject is Kyle Rudolph. There were a lot of breakout Tight Ends in 2012 – Dennis...

Rhodes isn’t a frequent ‘burn’ victim

Xavier Rhodes’ “burn rate” in college was the best among the top cornerbacks available in this year’s draft involved in a STATS study. See how he stacked up against others and what he had to say about making the transition to the Vikings defense.

The book on: WR Rodney Smith

One of the Vikings’ top undrafted signings, Rodney Smith has the measurables desired in NFL receivers. At Florida State, he was solid and unselfish but didn’t produce gaudy receiving numbers.
