Chris Kluwe apologizes, kind of, for Penn State 'joke'

The narrative in the story of Chris Kluwe vs. the Vikings has shifted somewhat to a cross-examination of Kluwe and a section of the report summary released last week that involved the former punter tearing a hole in his shorts and making a joke about former Penn State assistant Jerry Sandusky in front of Vikings conditioning coach Tom Kanavy (a Penn State alum).

It’s a bit of an unfair fight, of course, since the countless fans who already have Adrian Peterson...
