Yesterday, our marketing coordinator, Desirae,  invited Minnesota Vikings Defensive End #61 Cedric McKinley into the store to meet us.

He was kind enough to honor our request of autographing a Vikings Tackle Buddy.

Look,  there it is, his autograph! Thanks Desirae. Thanks Cedric!

Now he’s off to Tennessee to take down the Titans tonight. Go Vikes! Go Cedric our favorite Viking!

For young fans, our Tackle Buddies will pop right back up sack after sack ready for more action and more fun.

Tonight’s the Night that we will be watching the first preseason game.

If I had the patience I would make these fabulous looking chocolate covered football strawberries for the game.
