    Who was it?

    As part of a season-ending ritual, a Vikings rookie offensive lineman was designated to pick up a dinner tab for linemates, family members and friends at a downtown Minneapolis restaurant following Sunday's loss to the Rams. But when the $3,700 check, which did not include a $500 waiter tip, arrived for payment, the rookie assigned to pay had disappeared. He was tracked down a day later by a teammate and paid up.

    That is cold, man!
    I hope he got some decent bonus money when he signed his contract last year so that he could afford it!

    who was the teammate - probably McKinnie who was finally able to follow an assignment given to him
    , especially as it involved food

    They probably ate at Manny's. It doesn't take long to rack up 3,700 bucks in that place.

    You'd think they'd go eat at Matty B's.
    They do know the owner.

    McKinnie is not a rookie!


    I'm going with Jamye Mitchell as my first choice

    Ryan Cook as my second choice.
