Vikings Don't Know the Meaning of the Word 'Schism'

Earlier this week we reported on a possible rift in the Vikings locker room, with part of the roster sticking by Tarvaris Jackson as the preferred starter for the team. Then word trickled in that there were those who thought Sage Rosenfels was done wrong and that he should be the one under center. It was a full-on schism! ↵

↵Except, no. It can't be, because even if there is great in-fighting in the Vikings organization, they don't know what "schism" means. How can there be a schism if they don't know what it is. There can't! QED. ↵

↵Among those trying their hand at rumor quashing, Jared Allen had easily the most bizarrely humorous take of all, telling ESPN, "I don't think anyone on this team knows what "schism" is, let alone could use it in a sentence. I thought it was an STD when I first heard it and I was like 'whoa, we preach abstinence in these parts.'" ↵

↵There you have it, folks. The 2009 Vikings: A bunch of dumb squabbling guys who aren't getting laid. This year sounds fun. ↵
