The National Guys Are Nice

Posted by Mike Wobschall on August 7, 2009 – 6:46 pm

Over the past couple of days several prominent national media personalities who cover the NFL have swung through Vikings training camp in Mankato. It’s always a goal of ours at vikings.com to try and speak with those guys because they have lots of credibility with the fans.

Recently, NFL Network’s Mike Mayock took a few moments to chat with us. He’s been a great friend of vikings.com and he’s done a terrific job not only on NFL Network, but also as a broadcaster for Vikings preseason games. Later in the week, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Sports Illustrated’s Peter King also made appearances at Vikings training camp.

When national reporters such as King and Mortensen visit a team’s training camp, they are usually pretty busy. Their goal is to talk to as many important people as possible to get a feel for that team’s camp, and then quickly move on to the next team’s camp. In the midst of their busy schedules, both King and Mortensen graciously took a few moments to answer a few question for vikings.com. Click here to see what King had to say and click here to see what Mortensen had to say.

Although they have the notoriety and persona that would cause many people to act not so nice to team website guys like us, they were actually quite the opposite. The national guys were nice. So thanks, Peter King and Chris Mortensen!

Conversation With ESPN’s Mortensen

Posted by Mike Wobschall on August 5, 2009 – 7:42 pm

We had a chance to chat with ESPN’s Chris Mortensen today after the Vikings afternoon practice. Mortensen was in town as part of his “Mort Goes To Camp” tour, where he tours several NFL camp sites.

The video interview will be posted on vikings.com soon. Our thanks go to Chris, who was more than gracious with his time and, as you’ll see, was a great interview.

More national media individuals will be at camp tomorrow, including Peter King of Sports Illustrated, ESPN’s John Clayton and FOX’s Jay Glazer.
