How does one sum up the talents of Viking phenom Percy Harvin? Noted locker room grappler Adrian Peterson tried it by whipping out an unusual animal analogy culled from his rural experiences.
“I call him a young hog,” Peterson said while gushing about Harvin’s abilities. “I’m from the country and I know how wild boars get after you. That’s how he is. He breaks so many tackles, I’m sure he’s got tons of yards after the catch. He’s just a gift. He’s a tremendous athlete. He comes in each week, he works hard and he goes out and plays his heart out.”
That’s interesting, because there’s another Viking player – Jared Allen – who enjoys killing the occasional wild boar, not with a gun or a bow-and-arrow like a normal person, but with a bowie knife after wrestling it to the ground with his bare hands.
Thankfully, Jared’s drinking days are behind him, so the chances of him mistaking Percy for a boar and attempting to snuff him via sharpened object are slim.
Get ready for more crap like this. It’s the bye week.
