PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS: In Minneapolis, Ken Chia reviewed the apparel of Vikings fans at Friday's preseason game against the Bills. He noted more than half of the fans "were wearing a jersey of some sort -- authentic, replica, T-shirt, whatever -- and of those, it seemed like half" wore RB Adrian Peterson's No. 28 jersey. The "runner-up in the popularity contest ... was Jared Allen's No. 69, with Percy Harvin's No. 12 a distant third." There "weren't a lot of people" with QB Christian Ponder's No. 7 jersey, as he was "outnumbered by the likes of his predecessors" Brett Favre and Donovan McNabb (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 8/20).
