The Vikings remain alive in the quest for a playoff berth as they welcome the Colts into town in what is another must win game.
But before we look forward to tomorrows tilt, lets turn the page back-back to the year 1969 (Although I understand some of my fellow VFB’ers were not born yet.) In the fall of 1969 the Beatles Abbey Road was released in what would sadly be their final album.
The album was filled with many clues regarding the conspiracy that Paul McCartney had died in a car accident in 1966 and a lookalike impostor posed as Paul. One of the clues in particular was a license plate on a Volkswagen Beetle that was in the background of the iconic “Fab-Four” as they crossed the street. The license plate read 28IF, referring to the age Paul would have been if he were alive at that time.
Ultimately the rumors were proved to be false and Paul was alive and well-and still is as one of the last two remaining Beatles alive.
Which brings me back to 28IF. Perhaps by now you have made the connection while I’m having a little fun with the post. Yes, by now we all know the Vikings 28 is not an if anymore, but a when, and that when is this Sunday as we welcome back #28 Adrian Peterson back into the lineup.
How much he will play and how effective he will be is remains to be seen, but he will have to be accounted for, and that is a plus for the offense as a whole.
Welcome back AP-and SKOL VIKINGS!
