The now-infamous X-Files exchange, which I vowed not to document again until it got interesting, certainly veered in that direction late Tuesday night.
(If you don't know what the X-Files exchange is, go here for background.)
Minnesota Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe was among a group of players and coaches who rode a National Guard helicopter and participated in military-type training while visiting with Minnesota guard troops. According to a series of posts on his Twitter account, Shiancoe said one soldier offered a custom-made target for shooting practice.
Guess he wanted to start my engine early for the SAINTS game!

I'm not one to get preachy about taste, politics and the difference between a real enemy and one on the football field. But by all means, feel free to do so yourself.
