Media members who cover the Vikings pick a player each season for the Korey Stringer Good Guy Award and tight end Visanthe Shiancoe was honored Thursday before practice.
The award is presented to the Vikings player who is the most cooperative and has the best attitude with the media each season. Shiancoe was an easy choice.
Shiancoe's interviews are always insightful, engaging, funny and bizarre at times. And he's always available, which we greatly appreciate on victory Mondays when the locker room is empty.
To give you some idea of a typical Shiancoe interview, here is an exchange he had a with a few reporters on a slow Monday late in the season.
