Primetime Purple




Vikings Announce #PrimetimePurple Jerseys for Thursday Night Game

"The Vikings have worn the combination of purple jerseys and pants five times in team history, although the first time — Oct. 11, 1964 — wasn’t intentional.

The squad has traditionally featured purple jerseys in home games and worn white jerseys on the road. Occasionally, the Vikings wear purple jerseys in road games, particularly early in the season when the home team opted for a white jersey to counteract high temperatures and most recently in Week 4 when Chicago wore white throwback jerseys in homage to the Bears 1936 season.

In 1964, however, the Vikings elected to wear white jerseys and purple pants for some home games. A miscommunication created a problem when the Lions and Vikings both arrived at Metropolitan Stadium wearing white jerseys.

The Vikings truck driver drove to Midway Stadium in St. Paul, where the Vikings practiced, to fetch their purple jerseys, but he didn’t make it back to Bloomington before kickoff. The Vikings changed into purple jerseys during the second quarter right on the sideline."

Marathon for Speed
























New York Times – "For Speed, Chicago’s Marathon Is Second to None"

"The New York City Marathon has marketed itself as the world’s marathon, bringing in tens of thousands of international runners to the city’s biggest block party. The Boston Marathon has positioned itself as the most prestigious marathon in the world, a Super Bowl for amateur runners where meeting the race’s stringent qualifying standard provides a lifetime of bragging rights to runners of all ages. And the Chicago Marathon has become known as the racetrack — where runners go looking for their best performance."
