Being a Vikings fan is in my blood, in fact, it is a dominant genetic tendency in my family passed down from my mother and grandmother. I spend the whole summer counting down the days until training camp starts. Then I spend my evenings shouting at the sports guys on the news who persist in talking about baseball when all I want to hear about is football. I'm not patient.

Alive and Kicking

113

A sequel to the story I wrote back in June about my baby niece, and the challenges she has faced in her first year of life.

A Matter of Perspective

156

As disappointing as it is that the MN Vikings are 0-3, there's a lot of football left in 2013. Tales of the season's demise could be, ever so slightly, overstated.

Predictably Unpredictable

139

The season of wild and crazy predictions passed off as fact is upon us. During a time when a bad game is a portent of doom we explore why one writer doesn't take statistically based predictions too seriously.

We've Got Your Winning AP Joke

44

The response was great and the competition was tough, but we have a winning joke for you from our Chuck Norris-inspired Adrian Peterson joke contest. And, since you were so great, we have another contest too. It's the high price of success.

How tough is Adrian Peterson? Chuck Norris tough.

94

It's contest time at DN and we need you to flex your imagination for our latest contest challenge. This time we're looking to build the myth and legend of Adrian Peterson. Considering AP, that isn't too difficult, but we like to have fun with it.

Contest time again with the Track 7 challenge.

34

Somehow, despite the predictions to the contrary, the Minnesota Vikings hold a 5-2 record at nearly the half-way point of the season. Seemed like there should be a track on the 2012 Season Soundtrack to commemorate this unanticipated good record.

Winner of the Track 6 Challenge

Cheating and back-biting. Nope, not the Tour de France, it's the 2012 Season Soundtrack. Who knew the Track 6 challenge would prompt all that from the DN staff?

Too early for an MVP? Maybe not.

60

Just five weeks into the 2012 season, Percy Harvin can ignite the Vikings offense and create a scoring opportunity every time he touches the ball. All in a day's work for a player who has been astounding the league since 2009. Too early to say MVP?
