The Vikings and RamadanPosted by PH
No, not those Vikings. In the midst of Islamo-dissing and Islamophobia, The New York Times gives us a reminder that Muslims are everywhere including the NFL.
Abdullah, a third-year safety, is a Muslim who keeps the traditional fast during the holy month of Ramadan; he cannot eat or drink from sunup to sundown. So while his teammates slugged down water and sports drinks on the sideline during the first quarter, Abdullah had to abstain until sunset, at 7:57 p.m. Abdullah went by the clock because the game was indoors.
