Vikings announce training camp dates


The fact that this is news really just underlines the fact that Minnesota sports is in a dark, cold, dreadful abyss at the moment.

The Twins having lost 11 of 13, and we're in limbo between the Wolves and Wild wrapping up underwhelming seasons, and the Gophers and Vikings beginning what we hope are not-so-underwhelming campaigns.

So you can't blame media or fans for looking at the release of the Vikings training camp schedule as the next ray of hope in the otherwise empty canyon of sports positivity. Let's be honest, the fact that organized team activities, which run thru Thursday, are making headlines around the league shows how football hungry we are.

Since that's the case, start the countdown to July 25th! That will be the day the Vikings report to Mankato for training camp, with their first day of practice coming on the 26th. Camp will break on August 15th.

For entertainment and optimism's sake, we can't wait, so we will officially start the countdown, 58 days until your purple return.
