Percy Harvin Comes Down With Another Mystery Ailment


The NFL’s rookie symposium is the place where new players learn the ins-and-outs of dealing with life as a professional athlete.  One Vikings rookie, Percy Harvin, will have to learn those ins-and-outs at a later time however, as he has been sent home from the symposium after falling ill.

According to NFL.com, Harvin showed up on Sunday with the rest of the 256 draft picks who were scheduled to attend, but soon notified the medical staff of his problem and was dismissed.  This will all sound familiar to Vikings fans, who remember that Harvin, while in the airport ready to leave for Minnesota for rookie minicamp in May, came down with a virus and ended up in the hospital taking intravenous fluids.

There have thus far been no further details on what is ailing Percy this time, but really, does it matter?  All we need to know as football fans is that Percy Harvin is either incredibly susceptible to every bug going around or just doesn’t like showing up for stuff.  I can relate to that latter possibility, having missed many a boring day of fifth grade by coming down with a stomach ache that was, funny, all better by nine o’clock.

Let’s hope that, when it comes time to strap it on, Percy is able to keep his lunch down, otherwise someone will have to lay in a supply of puke-drying sawdust.  There might be some left around the Metrodome from when Robert Smith was on the team.

    Percy needs to get back to hear about VD, golddiggers, expenses, identity theft, grouppies, entourages, violence against women and dogs, and penalties for criminal and drug arrests.

    They should add a course on p***ywhipped men and invite the vets who missed it.  Maybe Dallas Dave could also attend.
