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.

But if we have to wait a little bit longer for Training Camp, at least the Vikings were good enough to post some vintage pictures of Training Camps gone by. This album has images of Tommy Kramer, Chris Doleman, Anthony Carter, Bud Grant, and more. Enjoy this bit of nostalgia as we get ready to see what the Vikings' future will look like in Mankato this year!
