The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings have invaded their August home as the eyes of the Purple Faithful all shift towards Mankato, the Crown Jewel of South Central Minnesota. We talk about the major early storylines from Training Camp and get Arif Hasan on the horn from Mankato to fill us in with some updates. Can't wait to get down there on August 4th-6th and setup base camp at Boulder Tap House again!

I got Chris Tomasson (@ChrisTomasson) of the Pioneer Press to sit still for a conversation about his extensive world travels and the upcoming season of Minnesota Fightin' Viking football.

Former Vikings head coach Denny Green passed away this week at the young age of 67. Denny coached the Vikes from 1992 to 2001, was the 2nd winningest coach in franchise history (behind only Bud Grant), and was a pioneer in the African-American head coaching world. Both in the NFL and in college football. We take time to look back and remember the life of Coach Green and the legacy he leaves behind.

Head coach Mike Zimmer met with a herd of Vikings fans Thursday night at the Fan HQ Eden Prairie. Coach signed autographs and took photos as part of the #MoreThanWords campaign benefiting the Mike Zimmer Foundation. Happy to say that this event helped smash MTW's original $10,000 fundraising goal and we're currently over $12k. Still plenty of time to donate before the August 9th deadline. Let's run up the score on this mother!

Pokémon GO has taken the world by storm. And as we've seen, I never let a pop culture phenomenon go by unincorporated into Purple FTW's sphere for both the LOLs and for SEO purposes. So there's the Pokémon GO one. (Damn we need football back.)
