Jenkins, Robison Visit Burnsville, Lakeville Chambers

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 9, 2011 – 3:52 pm

As part of the Vikings “You Made the Team” Community Tour, Vikings personnel hosted a luncheon with the Burnsville and Lakeville Chambers of Commerce on Tuesday.

During the lunch, Vice President of Public Affairs and Stadium Development Lester Bagley addressed a crowd of civic and business leaders about the team’s passion for giving back to local communities, and he provided a stadium status report. In addition, KFAN-FM mid-day host and Vikings play-by-play announcer Paul Allen conducted a Q&A on the Vikings 2011 season with WR Michael Jenkins and DE Brian Robison.

The Vikings “You Made the Team” Community Tour was implemented in 2007 and is designed to connect with fans, community partners and local leaders while providing an update on the excitement of Vikings football. Thus far the tour has made 14 stops: Austin, Brainerd, Duluth, Fargo/Moorhead, Fergus Falls, Grand Rapids, Iowa City, Mankato, Marshall, Owatonna, Red Wing, Rochester, St. Cloud and Willmar.

    The Vikings should think about switching Everson Griffen from Deffensive End to Deffensive Tackle.

    Hopefully they can visit the ENDZONE IN GREEN BAY!!!

    A win in Green Bay would really be a big statement i just hope the Vikings can play better now with Chris Ponder at QB.

    The Vikings should make some kind of a trade with the Dolphins to get Brandon Marshall.

    5 days till the Packers get brought down to reality. I cannot wait– all the commentators will be in shock. But not me.

    I suppose reality would be that the Packers defense won’t allow more than 200 yards, and Rodgers will only pass for 300. Unreality would be the Vikings winning the game.

    Paul Allen is a dumpster baby.

    Jared Allen participates in donkey shows.

    C. Ponder is the donkey.

  10. By TITANIUM TITUS on Nov 9, 2011 | Reply

    Ponder in two or three years will be the talk of the NFL– Rodgers will be traded to KC or the 49ers as a back up.

    Ponder will go to prison for molesting little boys.

    Clay Matthews is gonna rip off Ponder’s leg and club the $h!t out of him with it. Then he will club the stupid out of Jared Allen, as well as the woman parts off from Longwell.

    I always love it when friendly neighbors come over to have an intellectual debate about the upcomming game…

    They need only post. No need to respond. Class emanates from their eloquent expounding on the virtues of their championship.

    Toad The Wet Sprocket………Wikipedia just says that you broke up in 1998, citing “creative differences”………..It doesn’t say WHO you broke up with, but I’m guessing it was Justin Bieber.

    @Toad,

    How can you stand to look at Matthews hair for 17 weeks! Yuck ! ! !

    @Woodboat, Canadian Vikes Fan, and Jordan Adams,

    Thank you for your sensible blogs. It’s all about TEAM, and nothing spells team more than the Offensive Linemen, and Defensive Backs. You do not have to believe me, believe Chuck Noll (Who only won 4 Super Bowls), because he said it.

    If the Vikings do not spend their draft picks, and money on those two areas during the off-season they can move to Bermuda for all I care.

    Football is one of the greatest team sports of all time, and your Vikings are making a mockery out of it.

    Fred is getting in on the act. Wow. That hair is kind of gross.

    How many does the dome hold…..62,00….that’s about the population of Bermuda.

    Take out the turf and put in a wave pool with a beach. Adrian can swim for touchdowns.

    HEY CHEESE HEADS:

    This Monday Night Game! just might be the one that gets Mr. Rodgers knocked on his cheese head BUTT. I do believe that the VIKES and Mr.PONDER GET TO RUB IT IN YOUR PROVERBIAL FACE IN THE UNFROZEN TUNDRA THIS COMING MONDAY NIGHT. AND by the way you stole the name FROZEN TUNDRA FROM THE VIKINGS OLD METROPOLITAN STADIUM IN BLOOMINGTON MN. YOU KNOW THE PLACE WHERE BUD GRANT WOULD NOT ALLOW HIS VIKES TO WEAR GLOVES, OR SIT ON HEATED BENCHES UNLIKE THE SOFT BELLIED PACKERS AND OTHER NFL TEAMS OF THE 60′S. So Packers beware the 14th of November it just might be your undoing. Skol VIKE FANS FROM ALL OVER!!!!!!!

    Hey Toad:

    Did you get all those witty sayings from Sh>T for DUMMIES, OR DID YOUR DADDY TEACH THEM TO YOU? By the way you know there are only two kinds of fans in this world VIKING FANS AND THGOSE THAT WISH THEY WERE. VIKES ARE THE CREAM OF THE NFC NORTH AND GREEN BAY IS THE CURDS IN THE SOUP.

    Gotta give credit to the front office for giving up on Ray Edwards and going with Brian Robison.

    And Michael Jenkins is turning into a really nice addition. Hes not Randy Moss but then again hes not Randy Moss :)
