    Ragnar still has faith in the Vikings

    He says he wasn't aboard the party boats last week ("Heavens, no") and doesn't know who was. But Ragnar, the Minnesota Vikings' long-haired, Harley-riding mascot, says that given the influence of popular culture, people shouldn't be surprised if there were sexual improprieties.

    Ragnar is the gridiron alias for Joe Juranitch, assistant dean of students at Hopkins High School. He said the team is part of a society that celebrates TV shows such as "Sex and the City" and "The Simpsons" and did not punish President Bill Clinton for sexual misbehavior "in our house."

    That doesn't mean he condones such incidents, he said.

    "I believe in abstinence only" outside of marriage, he said. "... I believe as a country we've gotten away from abstinence. ... When have we gotten away from 'No'?"

    Even so, he said, he continues to believe the Vikings are "a top-notch organization. ... You bet I do. ... Have some guys tarnished that? Sure."

    But he said he expects the new owner, Zygi Wilf, to "take care of" the situation, if the allegations are substantiated.

    Juranitch, who has performed as Ragnar for 13 years, said he's faced jokes and questions from school administrators and students about the latest Vikings reports. He doesn't buy some of their theories that football players who earn a lot of money are more likely to consider themselves above others and not subject to societal rules.

    If they do, he said, "Shame on you, because pride comes before a great fall."

    You really need to get to a game Vikez4Lyfe. Ragnar dances & does crazy stuff during the whole game.
