09:18 AM ET 08.05 | Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who faces a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge, is expected to miss training camp Monday, Aug. 6, while appearing in Harris County Criminal Court in Texas. Coach Leslie Frazier is aware of Peterson's absence. Peterson was arrested last month after an alleged conflict with an off-duty Houston police officer in a downtown club. Peterson has maintained his innocence.

How was AP supposed to know that he was an off duty officer when he was wearing capri pants and a floral shirt?

Wow. The Hall of Fame induction was last night, and the first story we get this morning is this?

August 5, 2012  09:27 AM ET

Fix your pictures.

Just another jacked up charge to make the city money I'm sure. What's the charge that called for his arrest in the first place?

Actually, it's AD for "All Day" and now apparently it's AN for "All Night" too.

He asked for a drink of water in a Texas bar.

I think that's a felony in the Lone Star state.

Drink the water around here and you'll need someone to carry you off. Nasty stuff. That's why I import mine from Kentucky.

He should do like TO and blow off the court hearing, what can they do to him....

Thanks, Stu. Geddy's a damn good bass player.

The new Rush album is great listening, if you haven't had the opportunity yet.

It is an excellent album. Can't wait to hear it live in a few months.

Amazing what a little corn, yeast and white oak can do to the taste of water.

I have loved Rush since I was a kid and bought the Farewell to Kings album. I'm even a huge fan of Caress of Steel, which I lot of people, even Rush fans, don't particularly care for. I would love to see them live again. Got the opportunity several years ago for the Test for Echos tour. They performed the entire first side of the 2112 album. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.

Pick off a few passes and they'll leave you alone.
