An essential component of any successful team is cohesion. The ability for a large group of talented individuals from varying and complex backgrounds to come together and move in one direction toward a common goal is not easily realized. Training camp is the starting point for NFL teams in their quest to gain this sense of purpose and direction.
In just a few days, the entire Vikings roster will gather in Mankato for 2012 Verizon Vikings Training Camp as they continue preparations for the upcoming season and the quest for cohesion. But thanks to modern technology and a bond born from both a passion for fun and wealth of resources, an important segment of this young Vikings roster has a significant head start on the building of camaraderie.
Andrew Miller of www.fasthorseinc.com wrote an interesting story about how QB Christian Ponder, TE Kyle Rudolph and C John Sullivan have made Minnesota their home by finding fun activities to pass the time of the offseason, and about how they share the fun with their fans via Twitter.
Miller’s piece is worth the read (and includes photos of the three Vikings out and about in Minnesota). Just make sure you come back to vikings.com after reading it. We have more Roster Rundowns to get to, after all.
