Several NFL teams get caught up in Pokemon Go frenzy (pics)
To say the “Pokemon Go” craze is taking on nearly absurd proportions would be a drastic understatement. So perhaps it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that a handful of NFL teams also are getting in on the action.
The Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears upped the intensity of their NFC North division rivalry with the following exchange over the latest pop culture craze.

The above exchange and subsequent reporting on it inspired other NFL teams to take to Twitter and make note about how “Pokemon Go” is also infiltrating the daily goings on within their organizations.

It’s a “Pokemon Go” World now, apparently, and we’re just living in it … figuratively, virtually and in way, practically speaking.
