Adrian The Standup Comedian

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 22, 2009 – 2:32 pm

Every Thursday, Vikings RB Adrian Peterson stands in front of the podium and an assembled group of reporters and cameras. It’s a routine that can at times become redundant. But Peterson’s sense of humor can at times shake things up, and this week he was at it again.

Asked if this game was special because they’re playing the defending Super Bowl champs, Peterson gave a sincere answer, saying “We know what type of team they have and what type of mindset they have. Just going against the defending champs, no matter what their record is, it’s a big game, especially on their own turf.”

But he continued by making a play on words relating to the name of the Steelers home stadium – Heinz Field – which is named after the popular ketchup and American food company based in Pittsburgh.

“So we’ve got to make sure we come out to a fast start because it’s going to be real hard playing catch-up (hint: ketchup) at Heinz Field.”

    A.P. seems like he is having a ball, but I know he is all business come game day. The Vikings really scored when they got him. Not often do you get a player who has both great attitude and skills. Hope you run for 150 yds. A.P.

    Yo Adrian, I know it might be hard playin “catchup” @ heinz field…..but you guys have done pretty well in the 3rd quarter, so take heart, I think you’ll do fine!! Whether or not you play catch-up or not. You,ll go for two TD’S, Chester will get one, and Brett will throw for a couple more. Sounds like a “W” on the road to me!!!

    “This is the Day the Lord has made, let up rejoice and be Glad” I know this is a Psalm, just not sure which one.
