    Vikings Fans......Orlanda Thomas Passes

    Former Vikings safety Orlando Thomas passed away this morning from ALS. He was only 37, same age as Gehrig was when he passed from this I believe.

    Thats to bad, I think he even lead the league in INT's one year, may have been 98'. He was a good player, hard to believe that the Vikes only have one player left since 01'.


    Two favorite teams, the Cyclones, and whoever is playing the Hawkeyes!

    ALS is not a good thing. I have seen a couple people pass on from it.

    RIP

    The blog post has been removed. Maybe it isn't true?

    Good news, he's still alive. Still, a very tough disease to deal with.
