Sometimes, Those Goofy Bastards Are The Best Thing Adrian Peterson’s Got Going

pat-healy According to a report from the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will host a group of young Special Olympians at Winter Park for a Punt, Pass & Kick competition.

Fifty athletes from Special Olympics Minnesota will participate in a punt, pass and kick clinic hosted by Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and teammates Wednesday.

The athletes will be able to watch a portion of the team’s practice, participate in punt, pass and kick drills, and get autographs. Peterson has supported Special Olympics Minnesota since the Vikings drafted him in 2007.

Kudos to Purple Jesus for spending time with these kids – I’m sure it is a day they will remember for years to come – it also means folks like you and me don’t have to do it, which is the best part. Go ahead, call me a terrible person, but I will tell you this: volunteering is a great thing, but only when someone else is doing it. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to take a nap. I have been up for almost four hours, for Christ’s sake.
