Everyone remembers the Vikings…plundering, pillaging, picking up litter…wait, picking up litter?
Yes, picking up litter. The Missouri Valley College Vikings football team proved that doing good work in the community is every bit as manly as sacking and burning a village, and with only half the calories. (I don’t even know what that means.) The Vikings football players and their coaching staff volunteered at Indian Foothills Park on Wednesday of this week helping with grounds maintenance and litter pick-up. The volunteers focused on cleanup around the skate park as well as maintenance on the baseball field.
I sent my private jet out to pick up the MVC Vikings football head coach Paul Troth and flew him out to my palatial mansion here in Northern Virginia. We sipped sherry on the veranda (I always wanted to say that!) while Coach Troth discussed this latest bit of charitable work from his team.
“The Marshall Parks and Recreation Department has been a big supporter of Missouri Valley Football,” he said. “We just wanted to show our appreciation and give a little back while also helping the community.”
