Jokingly, Minnesota Vikings fans posted pictures of themselves on social media next to the Green Bay Packers-themed urinal at the home of former Vikings quarterback Tommy Kramer.
It’s a passing event for former players, fans, etc., who visit Kramer’s home – in the spirit of the Vikings-Packers 62-year rivalry.
Over the weekend, Kramer apparently installed a new urinal, rekindling the anger of Packers fans on Twitter. The bathroom hardware was described by various Packer commentators as “weird,” “sad,” “rent-free,” and “bizarre.”
In particular, the image above Anthony Barr’s urinal was slanted, as some Twitter users decided that the image glorified Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers’ injury.
Overall, though, Packers fans used Kramer’s tweet to change the subject, deciding that it would be wise to set a 6-9 “quarterback record” against Green Bay during Kramer’s playing days.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Others have subtly examined the urine as “the best moment in the history of the Vikings.”
Meanwhile, another fan called the latrine a metaphor.
Kramer played for the Vikings from 1977 to 1989. In Passing Yard and Passing Touchdown, he ranks second in the history of the franchise. In addition to the light heart of urine, he engages more than most of the current Vikings fans. Kramer is often found around the Midwest signing autographs for fans. He even has a Vikings-themed limousine to host fans.
Last November, Kramer reached out to a man whose Viking-fan father had died, connecting for a game together.
The Vikings and Packers are playing Week 1 at US Bank Stadium. At the convenience of regular urinal use.
