Chad Greenway was already one of my favorite players, but after his recent comments he may have just moved up a few more notches. This is what he had to say to Minnesota Vikings fans about the upcoming game on Sunday with the Chicago Bears.
“We have to play accordingly and our fans have to show up accordingly, which we know they will. Hopefully, they’re super- duper drunk. So drink liquor, not beer.”
“Yeah, I would say morning drinking. Why not? You could pull an all-nighter. Then you’d have the drunk, tired guys who will really be obnoxious.”
How amazing is that? I love the candidness.
The Vikings are going to need all the help they can get Sunday after the news of Percy Harvin being placed on injured reserve for the rest of the season. Any extra home field advantage they can get, they will need against the Bears.
On the other hand, I’m sure the NFL is not going to be to thrilled with Greenway’s comments. This isn’t exactly the message Roger Goodell wants his players sending to fans. I’m guessing a fine of some sort will be handed down soon.
However, I also fully expect the fans to take Greenway’s challenge serious, and put on their drinking shoes come Sunday. The season is no doubt on the line for the Vikings in a must-win divisional game.
