Vikings’ First Night In Camp Includes Early Morning Fire Alarm


Vikings players and coaches had a pretty long, exciting day on Thursday, what with all the reporting and conditioning testing and meeting the media and fans and what not.

After all that action I’m sure the guys just wanted to hit their dorm beds and get some shut eye. Unfortunately, the fire alarm in the dormitory had different ideas.

Per Vikings team photographer Andy Kenutis, the alarm went off around 1:30 AM. Groggy players were forced to hastily throw on some pants and head for the lawn.

Turned out to be a false alarm. Conspiracy theorists will no doubt point to Mike Zimmer as the culprit. Keeping the guys on their toes?

As you can see from the picture Kenutis posted, a lot of the guys didn’t bother grabbing shirts. That was a group of ticked off, tired, shirtless Vikings milling about on the lawn in Mankato.

Don’t be surprised if guys look a bit listless and out-of-sorts during their first practice on Friday. It was just that pesky fire alarm.
