    Report: Ponder misses team bus, but Frazier is not alarmed.

    Eden Prairie, MN:

    Vikings Receiver Jerome Simpson made a good bet on Friday. To lighten up the Vikings practice, he bet Christian Ponder that the quarterback could not hit the team bus in the door with a pass of 30 yards.

    Simpson, Ponder, and several teammates marched off the distance in the training facility parking lot before Ponder set up to throw. To the Vikings players' surprise, Ponder missed the bus completely. To explain this, Ponder stated, "Before I had a chance to throw, the bus started slowly moving across the parking lot; that sort of changed things, but I guess I will have to work at it and do better next time."

    When head coach Leslie Frazier was told of the parking lot incident, he stated, "I will have to watch the security tape and see what we can do. I support Christian as our best opportunity to hit that bus."

    Simpson won his bet.

    Also, said Ponder, "it is what it is."

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    As a matter of fact, I do know

    That would explain why I saw Ponder throwing footballs a moving trains. Darndest thing, he never hit one. The ball went in between the train cars every time.

    That reminds me of when the Skins had to taking Mark Brunell out to the ocean after he failed to hit the broadside of a barn......Joe Gibbs...."See he knows, if he throws that ball in ocean, that it might get wet, and it won't be as easy to throw next time." BANG CARTOONS: Hilarious NFL cartoons and podcasts!

    Thanks Minni, you got my hopes up. I was hoping Ponder missed the bus and is stuck at Winter Park while everyone's in Dallas...... disappointing to say the least. :P

    Lol Ponder is so bad people think this story could be true. Wait, why am I laughing? This is depressing.
