Adrian Peterson's Turn

Since my last entry dealt with new NFL-er Sam Bradford, it's only fair that my next entry deal with my other most favorite NFL star, A.D. So, what's he been up to this off season?

  • He's apparently been practicing with a sand-filled 14-lb. football to help his fumbling problems, the theory being that if he can hold on to that, holding on to a regular football should be a snap.
  • He will be missing this weekend's minicamp practices to attend the 4th Annual Adrian Peterson Day in Palestine, Texas. Some pundits are trying to make a big deal of it, implying that he is missing the sessions because of contract negotiations. I don't buy it; they obviously have no clue how big the Vikings have become in Oklahoma & east central Texas because of A.D. They couldn't buy that kind of publicity. If you're interested in the festivities, you need to be in Palestine before 10:00 a.m. this coming Saturday. That's when the parade starts from the courthouse to Old Town. Afterwards, the party takes up at the Texas State Railroad Depot in Palestine.         http://palestineherald.com/local/x9
