Minnesota's NFL team ate like actual Vikings after Friday's practice. A huge roasted pig, with a Detroit Lions shirt in its mouth, was presented at the center of the locker room for the players to feast on.
The Vikings are playing the Lions Sunday in a pivotal division game, and since eating Lion meat is definitely illegal, the team had to settle for eating something more traditional.
This is an odd motivational technique, but at least it's more original than Tony Sparano's.
