The Vikings’ 15th and final training camp practice comes Wednesday. Yet Monday, to provide a slight break from the grind, head coach Leslie Frazier replaced the usual night meetings with a diversion to the Carmike Stadium Cinema.
This year’s showing: “Red 2,” starring Bruce Willis and John Malkovich. Coach’s decision.
Joked Frazier: “I’ve had some other guys pick it before. So this time I got involved.”
It’s understandable why the head coach with the wholesome values felt obligated to intervene. The 2012 camp movie: “Ted.”
“This one was much better than last year,” said cornerback Josh Robinson. “’’Ted’ wasn’t good. I’m not sure [who picked it]. But I know Coach did a little research this time. … Anytime you can step away from football for a couple hours it’s not bad.”
Added linebacker Chad Greenway: “I ordered the biggest Cherry Coke and popcorn they would serve me. I had to buy it, too. They [only] had free Gatorade and water. Thanks for that. But no, we had a good time.”
