Rule #1 of the internet: Never, ever, trust it or anyone hanging out on it. Especially those participating in message boards and chats. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell missed this memo, as Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe clowned on him in a Reddit discussion thread. Admit, you’ve been RickRoll’d. If you deny it, you probably won’t admit to getting your butt whooped at least once in your lifetime as well. It is nothing to be ashamed of, it happens. Anyway, Kluwe busted out the ages old internet meme in this discussion thread. Oh yeah, Kluwe is a Reddit regular, apparently. Probably the best thing about this was that the commissioner had no idea what just happened, and to it as a serious question. But like the commissioner can only do, he gave it a BS answer, anyway.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. While the coaching carousel has been spinning feverishly in the NFL this month, there has been little news with the Minnesota Vikings coaching staff.
For a team that has seen its share of turnover in recent years, the silence is probably being enjoyed. Other than interviews for special teams coordinator Mike Priefer and Mike Singletary, the co-linebackers coach...
Kyle Rudolph wasn’t the only Viking that had a good Pro Bowl showing. Several Vikings made key contributions and promoted the theme of the night – that players were giving appropriate effort.

Stiff competition doesn’t happen too often at the Pro Bowl. But this year, with the two main contenders for the MVP award suiting up for opposite sides, the game has extra intrigue.
Adrian Peterson and Peyton Manning both had solid years after coming back from injuries that appeared likely to limit — if not end — their careers. They’re now the frontrunners for the league...

This time next week, we’ll know who won the Super Bowl, and we can rightfully turn our attention to Kentucky Derby prep.
So the Pro Bowl was a thing that actually happened yesterday.
This may have been the worst game ever. Like a middle school game, actually.
One other note on the Pro Bowl. Kyle Rudolph won the Pro Bowl MVP, which was the trophy the Vikings were going for this...
