Hutchinson Hosts Early Thanksgiving Meal At Amplatz Children’s Hospital

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 24, 2011 – 7:00 am

Vikings All-Pro G Steve Hutchinson continued his tradition of providing holiday meals at childrens’ hospitals this week by hosting an early Thanksgiving meal for young patients and their families – approximately 100 people – at the new University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis.

In a Vikings-themed room at the hospital, the meal (turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes, green beans, corn and pies) was served buffet style. Joining Hutchinson were Vikings OT Patrick Brown, TE Jim Kleinsasser, S Tyrell Johnson, C John Sullivan, WR Kerry Taylor and QB Joe Webb. The players also visited children in their rooms who were not able to attend the Thanksgiving meal.

I’d like to send a special “thank you” to Jennifer Amundson of U of M Amplatz Children’s Hospital media relations for passing along the photos.

    THEY MAY NOT HAVE THE BEST TEAM THIS YEAR BUT THEY HAVE THE BIGGEST HEART ONCE AGAIN. NOT ONLY BRINGING THANKSGIVING TO THE KIDS BUT DONATING $500,000 TO THE HOSPITAL FOR A SPECIAL DESIGNED VIKING ROOM AND MEDICAL EQUIPMENT. ALSO THANKS TO JARED ALLEN AND THE REST OF THE TEAM FOR MAKING ONE SERIOUSLY ILL LITTLE BOY GET HIS WISH. HE MET THE VIKINGS.

    NO HEADS HAVE TO ROLL. We just need that person who
    can come in and organize the mess we call
    THE VIKINGS FRONT OFFICE.

    There are so many VPs sharing the top position that it has to be a contributing factor when it comes to the stupid drafts, free agency, and trades the Vikings have made in recent years.

    NO ONE PERSON COULD BE THAT DUMB and
    ignore the gaping holes in the Offensive Line and the Defensive Backs.

    (You would be surprised how good the defense would look with an above average offensive line.)

    Frazier is trying to organize the TEAM, but he has no power. Give the coach some power

    @Titus,

    Perhaps we can’t agree on getting a GENERAL MANAGER.

    Then give us your plan!

    We need to work TOGETHER.

    A FIST IS STRONGER THAN INDIVIDUAL FINGERS!!!
