I would like to have one final word with Viking's fans before we end the season. I think a few things need to be clarified so that we can move on to 2010.
Dear Vikings fans,
Hi guys, what a great run you had. It was a great game, and I am elated that you can now feel the pain of coming so close only to have the game thrown away by your leader and Pro-Bowl superstars.
This was your year. You got Brett Favre, the guy who was so amazing that the Super Bowl tickets should just have been mailed to you in April. I imagine it was hard to watch your invincible leader get screwed over so badly. Nine times out of ten you win.
I mean it's obvious you guys barely got a call all game. I saw at least three times where a Saint looked at Favre wrong and didn't get a personal foul. I will admit it was tough to watch the Silver Fox limp off the field, but at least everyone forgot about the interception.
I am so pissed we didn't get to draft Peterson right now. That guy is frickin' amazing. He can make the ball roll forward farther than any player I have seen in history. I mean I couldn't believe it at first, but then he did it a couple more times just for good measure. Then, everyone started doing it. It was awesome.
It's okay, there is always next year. I mean Favre will announce he is coming back tonight right? So, by tomorrow you should be fine knowing that you should once again have an easy road to the Super Bowl in 2010.
While you are wondering who is going to command your team next year, how many suspensions will your players actually have to serve, and how many empty seats are left... I'll be dreaming of our twenty-something Pro-Bowl quarterback, one of the youngest teams in the NFL, and the new impact players that Ted Thompson is going to bring in to take us over the top.
Don't worry, as a Packer fan I can tell you that most likely Favre will be back; and if you are really, really lucky, you'll get another chance to watch an NFC Championship game get thrown down the tubes. Don't worry, you'll get used to it.
The Vikings suck.
Have a great day,
P.S. I started writing this before Favre threw it away in the fourth instead of running. Nice one Bert.
