(ABC 6 News) - At least one former Viking is glad NOT to be in Mankato when the Viking's training camp opens on Monday.

As we've reported, former Viking's kicker, Chris Kluwe, was released by the team earlier this year and is now with the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders' training camp takes place in Napa, California.

Obviously, it's the other side of the training camp universe when compared to Mankato, MN. But Kluwe, who is also a well know in the Twitter universe, tweeted this little tidbit on July 24th.

"Heading to Napa. Gotta be honest, it feels a lot nicer to be going there rather than the STD capitol of MN. No offense, Mankato. #adiosGage".

Kind of makes you think he had something against the place, right? Apparently not. At least, not according to Kluwe. He went on to tweet...

"Lol, I love how many people think I did some sort of epic burn on Mankato and are all upset about it. I have nothing against Mankato."

Love him or hate him... you can follow Kluwe on Twitter at @ChrisWarcraft
