Daunte Culpepper Fulfills Destiny, Signs With Sacramento Mountain Lions Football Team
Culpepper immediately becomes the upstart league's most illustrious has-been, and is reunited with his former coach during his Minnesota Vikings glory days, Dennis Green. For those scoring at home, this is the equivalent of Bad Company joining back up with its former manager for the Sawdust Daze Festival in Oshkosh, Wisc.
This analogy works well on multiple levels; the infamous Minnesota Vikings boat party rivals anything that took place backstage at a rock 'n' roll show.
And, as the good people of south Florida do not need to be reminded of, the Miami Dolphins chose to trade for Culpepper instead of making a play at available free agent Drew Brees in '06. Since that time, Brees has been the best passer on earth and Culpepper is now playing in Sacramento.
Best of luck to Culpepper, who immediately becomes the face of the franchise (which played last year in AT&T Park as the "California Redwoods"). Perhaps some dude the team signed at its May general tryouts will become his next Randy Moss.
