This past weekend Tony Sparano, offensive line coach for the Vikings, unexpectedly passed away. It happened on Sunday morning, he was only 56 years old.

His death happened just days before the start of Vikings training camp. Training camp starts tomorrow, Wednesday, July 28th. They usually training most days of the week but this Friday the 27th is an exception.

The memorial service of Tony Sparano has been set for Friday the 27th and therefore the Vikings have canceled Friday's practice to allow everyone to go to the memorial.

If you're interested, the Sparano family is asking, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the American Heart Association.
