Adrian Peterson

Always there for the kids.

We’d expect nothing less from a member of the [intlink id=”35″ type=”category”]Minnesota Vikings[/intlink].

Running back Adrian Peterson is ditching his own football camp, which begins tomorrow, claiming he has to film a show for the NFL Network. We’d probably ignore this if the camp wasn’t called the Old Spice Adrian Peterson Football Camp and the NFL Network didn’t say Peterson isn’t filming his spot until July.

I guess they’ll have to call it the Old Spice Adrian Peterson Football Camp* now.

*Adrian Peterson not included.

The camp’s website explains Peterson’s absence away like this.

PLEASE NOTE! Adrian Peterson is being featured on the NFL Top 100 program and will not be able to attend this week’s camp. Although we are saddened to hear that he won’t be able to attend his camp, we congratulate Adrian on the honor. Since we learned the news, ProCamps has been working around the clock to maintain a program that still provides a first-class experience to all campers and allows interaction with various Sooner stars. All-time Sooner greats Mark Clayton, DeMarco Murray and Jason White will serve as special guest hosts at camp.

Jason White.


He had a hell of a pro career.

I don’t know about you, but I’d be pissed if I forked over some dough to play ball with Adrian Peterson and they gave me Jason White instead. And then, on top of it, the douche who was supposed to be there lies about his reason for skipping the event?

The Minnesota Vikings never cease to amaze me.
