    AD is Amazing and Inspiring

    It is just amazing how some peoples mind and determination can control their destiny. Adrian Peterson is so invincible. If he says he is going to do something, he will do it. He almost broke the single season rushing record. (HE WAS 9 YARDS AWAY!!!!!!) He also brought his team to a wild card playoff birth, but, unfortunatly, they lost in the first round. A must-read for any Minnesota Vikings or NFL fan.
