It doesn't matter who you root for or how much tension and bad blood there might be among rivals you cannot help but feel for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. Peterson's two-year-old son is currently in critical condition in a South Dakota hospital after being abused by the boyfriend of the child's mother. While I love the Packers and enjoy the heated rivalry between myself and Vikings fans I have always respected Adrian Peterson and won't even try to speculate what is going through that man's mind.
Peterson has said he loves all the support he is getting from fans but wants his privacy and has said he will be playing this weekend. All I can say is good luck Carolina. You are about to witness a man possessed beyond anything you have ever seen.
Best wishes to All Day, even though we wear the Green and Gold you have our support.
