Bar in Green Bay Rips on Adrian Peterson
I was out at Benson’s Flee Market on the Sioux Empire fairgrounds today. I was wearing a Vikings Hat and Jacket. As I walked around the Expo Building, looking at trash & treasures, lots of folks engaged me with a thumbs up or “Go Vikings”. However one gal sitting at a booth pulled the hamburger out of her mouth long enough to loudly “Boo” at me as I walked by. Green Bay fan. Or maybe she thought I was after her fries? Don’t know. I didn’t stop to talk to her. Pregame emotions are running high here is Sioux Falls today And I’m sure that emotions are running high in Green Bay too. I’m guessing it’s because of that little playoff game tonight. Get a load of this sign that is hanging is some bar in Green Bay. This is what Yahoo Sports is reporting about the banner:
The above picture was snapped in an unnamed Green Bay bar by Keith Leventhal, a television reporter from the Twin Cities. It reads “Hey Adrian! This Is What Nine Yards Looks Like.” It is presumably 27 feet long, which is the distance that Peterson needed to break Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record of 2,105 yards. Peterson finished the 2012 season with 2,097 yards. It’s a clever sign, sure, but we doubt Peterson will have time to stop by and see it. Also, Peterson just ran for 199 yards against the Packers in a 37-34 win last Sunday, a total that included a 27-yard rumble that set up the game-winning field goal. While the Packers defense stopped Peterson short of Dickerson’s record (and the end zone), it still wasn’t enough to prevent Peterson from personally destroying Green Bay’s shot at a first-round bye.
Kick Off is 7pm tonight. We’ll see who gets the last laugh.
