Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says he is getting younger


Once high school ended, so did my mathematics career.

I hated the subject but my elementary calculus skills tell me that every time you have a birthday, you get older one year (except for leap year’s, but dammit, that’s getting too complicated already).

However, for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, it’s not a philosophy he abides by. In fact, Peterson, who says he is ‘juicing on the blood of Jesus‘, told the Star Tribune that he’s actually getting younger and younger with every passing year.

Per Dan Wiederer:

Still, while Peterson will field all questions about his 2,500-yard goal, he’s less eager to dive into the curiosity about his longevity, not wanting to admit that the older he gets, the closer to ordinary his running will become.

“I feel like me not realizing that helps me,” Peterson said. “Me not thinking about, ‘Well, my clock is starting to tick, getting older and older.’ That’s not doing nothing but hurting me. So I’m thinking in my mind that each year I’m getting younger. Any way I can look at it with the most positive view that’s going to help me, that’s the way I’m looking at it.”
