If you had to pick which Minnesota Vikings player you’d want a photo from -- it might be Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton. An action shot of him running for his life to not get sacked. It might be Adrian Peterson, the current running back, who is always the top in the lead in rushing.
I’ll tell you the most painful way to get a Vikings autograph photo -- get run over by two of their biggest players.
That’s what happened last Sunday. Before the Vikes went out and beat up on the Cardinals, they accidently thrashed Fox sound man Bernie Beaudry. They were running out of the tunnel and onto the field, just as Bernie was running with some sound equipment in front of the tunnel. KABOOOM!!!
He ended up with broken glasses and a bloody nose. I’m not sure how he didn’t end up in the next version of “Weekend at Bernie’s.”
Unlike that Bernie, he lived. And he was a trooper -- he worked the rest of the game, with broken glasses. Brian Robison and Linval Joseph, who weighed a combined total of...well, A LOT...laughed and tweeted about it. They got a photo of the incident (you have to watch the video it’s incredible) -- and they autographed it to him. Now, as somebody that has made lots of cool collages with various autographed items...I think he should put it in a box with his broken glasses.
