All Day needs an IV

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, whose solid first quarter was following by an anemic showing in the second stanza of the game at Cleveland, needed some fluids at during intermission.

According to FOX’s Charissa Thompson, Peterson got an IV in the locker room.

It apparently worked.  Peterson has looked good so far on the first drive of the third quarter.

Then again, he was back on the sidelines, taking a knee.

    He looks just fine to me. Heh.

    That’s a good looking cut right there. Ouch. He’s tough, he’ll come back strong.
    Good think the Cardinals picked Levi Brown instead of Adrian Peterson, eh?

    Is English your first language?

    Ok so it was a tiny needle cut, but damn that was a lot of blood.
    He’s still one tough SOB though.
    KayC better be a chick, not that there’s anything wrong with that if not…

    Don’t forget to drink your Ovaltine!

    Should he be bleeding that much just from an IV needle stick? Of course, it might help if they had stuck a band-aid on when they yanked the needle.

    He let someone stick a needle in his arm? IN CLEVELAND? UH-OH
    S.A.D – Staph. All. Day.

    Haha, even straight men are allowed to say he looks fine when he’s racked 180 yds and 3 TDs so far today.

    In light of Minnesota’s labor laws, I think we need to check that IV for steroids.

    What, Florio, no Favre has smallpox, swine flu, dutch elm disease, polio, scabies, etc. tie in here?
    Guess it is true that nothing makes your detractors STGU quicker than proving them wrong.
    Brett today did everything he has to do to help the Vikings win: good completion ratio, get the handoffs right, no INTs, and taking a seat when he isn’t needed. Chilly may wind up looking like a mad genius at the end of the season. One thing still needed and that is better O-line protection to protect old #4.
    and BIG OLE PROPS TO ALL DAY, who now has 4ALL TIME to help him. 180 yds. rushing, not shabby!

    Yeah. . .and after he got an IV, all he did was put up 180 yards and a run that will be on NFL Films for years to come where he absolutely humiliated the entire city of Cleveland.
    Best running back in the league. Anyone that thinks otherwise is a moron.

    League should have him pee in a cup after the IV.

    “League should have him pee in a cup after the IV.”
    There’s comedy, there’s high comedy, and then there’s Patriots fans suggesting that players on other teams might be cheating.
    Your entire organization is corrupt. Sit down, please.

    Chilly you are an idiot. Why do you start the game with an onside kick? Even if you get the kick it is a stupid idea. Cheech Haevin rookie of the year . . . AP makes everything look better

    You can’t blame Pats fans for assuming that success is a direct result of cheating, though, you know? We have to cut them a little slack.
