HUGE friggin' pickup Vikings...huge!

Our purple warriors of the north signed the household name of Bobby Wade today to add a complimentary piece to their already spectacular passing game. Looking at Wade's stats from last season we see that he caught 33 passes for 461 yards, which are paltry compared to many number two receivers from last year, but impressive enough to be the Viks number one coming into the year. I find this signing atypical for the Vikings, just putting a band-aide on the wound as usual. I have no idea why the Vikings would sign Bobby Wade and not sign Wes Welker formerly of Miami and now with New England. This point was brought to my attention today by Venti Mocha Frappacino guy (I work at Starbucks). He was utterly distraught from the fact that the Dolphins let Wes Welker go to New England. Normally, I don't take things seriously that customers talk to me about, but Venti Mocha Frappacino guy is an absolutely die hard Dolphins fan. He wears some sort of jersey, shirt, cut off, jacket everyday to express his "fond regard" for the Dolphins. Now this man says to me that the Vikings missed a huge opportunity to pick up on a very young and solid receiver that could be the next Don Hutson and New England obviously doesn't pick up shitty players. After Venti Mocha Frap guy finished his vignette and upon further research, it is apparent that the Vikings once again showed their ineptness by missing out on a great prospect and instead signed a no name, that will disappoint anyone with a shred of optimism for the Vikings receiver core this year. Consolation prize for us, at least we pawned off Culpepper on Miami. Sorry Miami, when it rains, it pours!
