Dear Vikings fans,
I always enjoy talking to you the day after a game. Especially a game when you lose, which is usually when I take the time to write. I pen today with great concern as I have listened to your brethren whine quite incessantly all morning and well into the afternoon. I am sure you are well, but it bares asking about your overall mental health today nonetheless.
I understand the pain you must be feeling this fine fall afternoon. The loss, although unfavorable in the record books, must certainly sting much less than the complete loss of hope you are experiencing right now. Much as to a soldier in battle, I cannot relate to what must be a terrible pain in watching one of the finest casts ever assembled go down to a team of mostly backups and injury survivors.
I had so hoped the pieces were in place for you and your family. I thought having the best running back, quarterback, and wide receiver in the league would be enough, not to mention the front lines consisting of so many highly decorated men. Yet, you must agree that every man comes to realization at some point in their lives that they aren't 16 anymore but rather a half broken former shell of their youthful hopes and dreams. It's the inevitability of life, and something that money can never buy.
Both sets of our men certainly suffered egregious wrongs at the hands of the officials didn't they! I too get upset at things of this nature, but perhaps you can find solace knowing that even had the contest been called fairly, the outcome would have certainly remained the same. I certainly hope your family handles those situations like mine, preferring not to blame to impartial party but rather realize our role in the defeat. That takes a strong soul and I know as an intelligent bunch you most certainly would not have taken that route.
Please let us know you are faring well and again friend, I wish you the best. Please send my regards to great-grandfather Bert and give an extra squeeze to our retarded but courageous cousin Brad. May you find better luck next season.
Also, Martha asked me to mention that she would be delighted to have you this playoff season. We understand how lonely it gets for you guys at that time of year and our door is always open.
