Golfing For Charity

Posted by Mike Wobschall on June 13, 2012 – 10:18 am

Any reason to find your way onto a golf course is a good reason, as far as I’m concerned. But the Vikings organization actually has a legitimate reason to hit the links on Wednesday.

The Minnesota Vikings 2012 Golf Tournament, presented by Miller Lite, will be held on Wednesday at Rush Creek Golf Club in Maple Grove, MN. The sold-out tournament is not open to the public and will feature over 30 Vikings players, including QB Christian Ponder, RB Toby Gerhart and TE Kyle Rudolph. Also, several Vikings Alumni will be on-hand, including Randall McDaniel and Scott Studwell. Joining the action will be the entire 2012 Vikings coaching staff, Vikings executives, Viktor the Viking and the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders.

Proceeds of the event will benefit the Vikings Children’s Fund.

“Good chance for us to go out and do something in the community and raise some funds for some kids and people who are less fortunate than we are,” Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier said.

The tournament is scheduled for an early afternoon shotgun start and will be followed by an awards ceremony with comments from Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman and Frazier. KFAN Radio will broadcast from the tournament from noon to 6:30 p.m.

Since its inception in 1978, the Vikings Children’s Fund has raised nearly $10 million, with over $5 million supporting research at the University of Minnesota Department of Pediatrics.

    Leslie Frazier:

    “NFL Experience:
    Leslie was a part of the legendary Chicago Bears defense that won Super Bowl XX in dramatic fashion over the New England Patriots in 1985. Frazier, along with All Pro Dad Mike Singletary, were members of the famous Chicago Bears “G Crew” in the video, “The Super Bowl Shuffle.” As a cornerback, Frazier led Chicago in interceptions during the 1983, 1984, and 1985 seasons. He was a huge impact in the Bears secondary, but his career was cut short due to a knee injury suffered while returning a punt in the first half of Super Bowl XX.”

    To answer your questions on where everyone is I believe Nova, Shawn, Spencer, Rocksalt, ect. are all on Hotcarlmakers blog http://www.vikingsfootballblog.com . And I believe Titus and Parody are doing a silent protest. They all got sick of the censorship and comment limit that is enforced on this website. But sooner or later they’ll probably be back.

    We all know that Cook is talented, but he has to show that he is able to last more than 8 games on the field.
