Closing Thoughts

Well we sure had our chances. Not to take anything away from the Saints but the Vikes were the better team, as evidenced by our time of possession lead and total yards domination. It was just those damn turnovers. Hell, we could barely hang on to the ball even when we didn’t fumble. Favre threw a couple picks but I can’t hate on Brett, he was the reason we made it this far in the first place. Packer fans probably feel a bit vindicated but then again, they barely qualify as people. It was a good year, dually successful in winning games on the field but also restoring this team’s image. The Vikes have come a long way since The Sex Boat and this season furthered the improvement of their public image. Hopefully Brett comes back but if not, the future is still bright.

To lose an NFC Championship game is tough, Viking fans can attest to that, but I’m sure glad we lost to the Saints. Not in the sense that I’m glad the Vikings lost but that we didn’t lose to the Cowboys or say…the Packers. The Saints have been vital to the rebirth of New Orleans after Katrina and in a building (Superdome) that housed thousands of Katrina victims, it only makes sense that the people of N’awlins’ were able to enjoy their first ever Super Bowl appearance in the same building they experienced such tragedy.

NBA Jam is making a comeback. I am excited. Do you think ARK is still a code for Bill Clinton? Or how about this one, DUM for George Bush.
