The Vikings canceled Friday's training camp practice in order to attend the memorial service for Tony Sparano. Sparano, the Vikings offensive line coach, died Sunday morning at his home in Eden Prairie. Fans with tickets to camp will be contacted directly by the Vikings ticket office, the team said. For additional updates, call 612-338-4537. In lieu of flowers, the Sparano family has asked that donations be made to the American Heart Association. Sparano's cause of death was arteriosclerotic heart disease, according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner. Regularly scheduled training camp practices will resume Saturday.
