Adrian Peterson hugged Vikings GM Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer outside his Texas home today. There’s proof, on the TV.
Frankly, we’re surprised we haven’t been deluged with emails from public relations contacts trying to get us to interview hug experts.
(Actually, we’re kind of sad about this. Maybe there aren’t hug experts? Maybe we could become one?)
Petersonmetwith the two Vikings reps for four hours, and the meeting went well, and blah blah blah back to the hugs.
Our breathtaking analysis:
*Peterson did not initiate the first hug with Spielman. AP was going in for a casual handshake, from what we could see, but Rick called an audible and went in for the hug. Peterson seemed fine with it. After that, it was only natural for Zimmer and Peterson to hug. A handshake would have been weird.
*All three guys showed some solid bro-hug technique. The hugs were of appropriate length and scope.
*Spielman spends more on the tailoring of his sport coats than Zimmer. Peterson looked like he was dressed to attend a volleyball match.
*We wouldn’t read to much into the hugs other than that it’s probably a good sign that when Spielman went for the hug, Peterson didn’t instead punch him in the face.
And this concludes our report on the Peterson Hugs.
