Pre-NFC playoff 'Pants': The Minnesota Vikings meet Larry Platt

visanthe-shiancoe-larry-pla.jpgGuess who made a surprise visit to the Minnesota Vikings before their NFC championship game against the New Orleans Saints? "American Idol" sensation Larry Platt with his "Pants on the Ground."

Last Sunday (Jan. 17), Brett Favre and Minnesota Vikings celebrated their win over the Dallas Cowboys with some "Pants on the Ground" in the locker room. Today (Jan. 24), in preparation for their NFC title game against the Saints, the Vikings brought in Mr. Platt himself and it had the Vikings all a-twitter.

Wide receiver Bernard Berrian tweeted at about 10 a.m. Sunday morning, " We just met larry platt. If don't know who that is. Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin like a fool with yo pants on the ground." Left tackle Bryant McKinnie tweeted, " Yall will never guess who was just @ our team meeting! We needed this! twitvid coming soon." Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe tweeted, " U will not guess who was in our team meeting today..." and posted pictures of himself with Platt. Larry looks so small compared to those big NFL guys!

Here is McKinnie's twitvid. The quality is not great, but you can tell it's Larry Platt and you can tell the Vikings are just loving it. This is like the best thing we've heard/seen in a long time!
