This hardly qualifies as anything close to the most interesting Vikings news of late, but ESPN announced the fall lineup for its acclaimed “30 for 30″ documentary series, and former Vikings receiver Randy Moss is slated to be a subject.
“Rand University” will explore the enigma that is former NFL star Randy Moss by going back to where he came from — Rand, West Virginia.
We wholeheartedly look forward to viewing it when it debuts Nov. 11 and support the name of the documentary 100 percent.
In addition, however, there is a documentary we don’t really care to see. It’s not a full “30 for 30,” but …
The “Playing for the Mob” debut on October 7 will be immediately followed by a special premiere of a new 30 for 30 Short titled “The Great Trade Robbery,” directed by Stu Zicherman. Launching on Grantland the next day, this short film is a first-person account by Jimmy Johnson of arguably the most significant trade in NFL history—when the Dallas Cowboys built their Super Bowl dynasty 25 years ago by sending star running back Herschel Walker to the Minnesota Vikings.
