rudolph twinsThe Vikings won 11 games last season in 16 tries. The Twins are stuck on that same number in 44 tries after another drubbing Monday at the hands of Kansas City.

The franchises are going in about as complete opposite directions as possible at the moment, but at least in the very short-term their worlds collided at Target Field when Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph was invited to throw out the first pitch. The timing seemed a little odd … except when considering the Vikings this week have OTAs (organized team activities, a fancy word for “practice”) … and when considering the news Rudolph shared with the world: he and his wife Jordan are expecting twins.

Rudolph was flanked by several teammates at the game, including QB Teddy Bridgewater. And he spent some time pregame with first baseman Joe Mauer — who of course not only plays for the Twins but has twin girls of his own.

It was a cute little side story — and hey, anything to take the focus off of the field.
