Mike Zimmer Experiences the Adrian Peterson Handshake


Minicamp is underway for the Vikings. Players are in the facility at Winter Park. In uniform. Ready to lightly work.

The new coaching staff is on hand, getting acquainted with the players.

Adrian Peterson reported for the voluntary minicamp on day one, and quickly introduced himself to Mike Zimmer.

Leading to this classic image.


There you have it, a great moment in Vikings history, captured on film.

Mike Zimmer and Adrian Peterson, shaking hands.

This must have been what it was like when Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin first met.

I’ve got chills all up and down my spine.

I wish there was a game on. Today. Right now.

So does Adrian Peterson. So does Mike Zimmer.

Those two guys are ready to rock and roll.
