The Minnesota Vikings, it seems, are paying tribute to the late artist Prince in a way that could come up numerous times in a game.
According to ESPN, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been using the name of one of his hits at the line of scrimmage.
During the Minnesota Vikings’ first padded practice of training camp on Sunday, Bridgewater could be heard calling out a check at the line using the words “Purple Rain,” the name of Prince’s seminal 1984 film and album. The musician, who was born in Minneapolis, opened Paisley Park Studios in the Twin Cities suburbs and introduced the world to the “Minneapolis Sound,” also was an avid Minnesota sports fan who recorded a fight song for the Vikings after attending their 2010 NFC divisional playoff win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Prince, who was known to be a huge sports fan, died in April from an accidental overdose of the fentanyl.
