Just days after making news for agreeing to his rookie deal, and then tweaking his hamstring, Minnesota Vikings rookie cornerback Josh Robinson has started to poke fun at his new rivals, the Green Bay Packers.
Robinson tweeted this photo Sunday afternoon:
SKOL Vikings is the name of the team’s fight song. Skol is a Danish/Norwegian/Swedish word for cheers, good health, or a salute or toast to an admired person or group.
I found this ribbing to be entertaining and completely harmless.
First off all, regardless of your religious affiliations, fans of the Vikings have to be happy Robinson is going to church, and is not spending his Sunday morning sleeping off a long night out on the town.
There’s nothing wrong with a little fun, and that’s all this is. Robinson is clearly on board with his new team, and seems to have already drank the proverbial Kool-aid. If you’re the Vikings, that’s what you want to see…
As for the more important issue of Robinson’s hamstring, he’s currently listed as day-to-day, and figures to miss anywhere from few days up to a week of training camp.
It’s no secret that the Vikings are counting on Robinson to be there for them as a No. 3 cornerback on passing downs, and potentially in the return game as well. He’s the fastest player on the team, and they must utilize his speed when they can.
