Look at this photo. Look at this god damn thing. Look at it and tell me you have ever seen anything more spectacular. You can't. You would be lying. And I hate liars. I have no real context for this image. I just thought it was important enough to show you all this today on a crappy Monday. I was found from a rather random Twitter account, and that didn't really provide any context either. All they said was "Cris Carter and Randy Moss play an intense game of ping pong." OK. I can see that fairly clearly from the image, as well. But frankly it doesn't matter. Would context even help? I don't need it. JUST LOOK AT THAT PICTURE! Seriously. Those two guys are awesome. This has to be early in Moss' career, don't you think? I thought Randy has an afro or braids during most of his late tenure with the Vikings, so I'm thinking this is like 1999 or 2000 or so. That would mean Carter deserves to look every bit as much of a dad as he obviously does in this picture, with the grey-suit and white tennis shoes, while the young Moss is freaking out like only the Super Freak can do. Those were the times. As an aside, what the crap kind of ping pong table is that? A table for ants? You can't have a 6'4" receiver play ping pong on a table that's half as long as he is tall. That's just stupid. Randy could just as easily reach across and under that table than he could adroitly propel a plastic ball forward between those white lines. And don't tell me that's the only ping pong table either of those guys could afford at that point in their lives. Come on now. Anyway ... I guess if I have to try and make this relevant to TODAY'S Vikings, Cris Carter's son, Duron Carter, attended the Vikings rookie camp this past weekend. He's not a very good football player, and it's a real damn stretch that he can even make the practice squad, let alone the active roster this year, but he seemed to settle in after having a rough start to the weekend, dropping his first three passes. Granted, they were from undrafted quarterbacks, so they weren't the most accurate, but he wasn't doing himself any favors. And that, is your Vikings Monday. Salute. [follow]
