    Peterson GQ article

    [size=13pt]ADRIAN PETERSON: THE NFL’S, MOST TALENTED, MAGNETIC PLAYER…[/size]

    By Lisa DePaulo

    He is 23, all of 23, and still very much a kid from East Texas. A kid whose favorite activities off the field are playing poker and going to Bible class. But he is also a kid who is suddenly the biggest pro-football star in the country—the 2007 Rookie of the Year, who rushed for 1,300 yards and twelve touchdowns in just fourteen games last year and is now being compared to everyone from O.

    Two more brothers, Derrick and Eldon, live with him in this house and have guided him on some of the major decorating decisions. Such as: painting the entire basement in Viking purple
    That's awesome, he has his own Vikings man-cave.

    Yeah pp.o should have had a fundraiser for the dinner at ADs house. Hell a dollar a piece and we could have taken the whole pp.o family over. Imagine how AD would react with several thousand purple #28's at his door. ;D

    Nice article. One thing I found interesting- "(The other nickname he gets here in Minnesota is “Purple Jesus,” which he loathes.)"

    Re: Peterson GQ article

    I actually just read that. The pictures are good. He is CUT. Has some interesting tats.

    Anyway, I personally don't care what his hobbies are, if he can hit the hole and run well. Now we just need to get him a running lane and/or get him in space so he can use his ridiculous skills.

    To self:
    God, I just "outed" myself as a guy who reads GQ, on a pro football site !! : :P
