It's mother nature telling us we should be playing outdoors. [img][/img]

You think Ziggy's face was red when after we lost 31-3 to the Packers. Imagine his face when he learned that the Humpty Dump had collapsed. That's 12.5 percent of his regular-season game day revenues that they put on their balance sheet at the start of the year, for one of the most cash strapped teams in the league. Now would be the time to blow that thing to the ground and start over. Or as BNAG stated yesterday, but the teflon off the roof entirely ... there's your outdoor stadium. How embarassing. Perfect ending to the season, however, that had SuperBowl aspirations but has become quote a joke.

60,000 tickets at $35 apiece = $2.1 million
60,000 fans spending an everage of $40 each = $2.4 million

That's $4.5 million, and those are low-end estimates. That doesn't include the people that own parking lots, that serve drinks before the game, that wait tables after the game, sell T-shirts and jerseys.

$20 says Favre limps (because of his shoulder) out there tonight and starts. He's been busy setting it up to look like he won't and then BLAMMO!....there he is. Tougher than Clint Eastwood's toenail clippings.

I have received information that next weeks Monday Night Football game featuring the Chicago bears traveling to the Minnesota Vikings could be played at TCF Bank Stadium. Temps are forecasted for 17 degrees. Vikings will also be wearing the throwback jerseys for the game.

Great find on youtube...man those intros were horrible! Will the Vikes wear the throwback jackets for pregame warm-ups? Those things were sweet!

There have been a lot of great all-time endings to Vikings games, but maybe none greater than last night. Anytime a performance like that ends, it's great. Chili got fired, but he lives in TJack. And I'll betchya $2 cash that the Vikings 50th Anniversary Celebration game is held at Ford Field in Detriot next weekend.

I remember being 8 years old and watching this game at Howie's with Camel and I ran outta the room as they lined up for the hail mary. Plugged my ears and made loud noises because I was too nervous to watch. I think Camel nutted up and watched though. Needless to say I've always regretted not staying in the den to see that miracle pass and catch that won the division in 1980. Grrrr!!!!

It believe this was the first of many times in my life I was told to relax or be quiet or to settle down while watching the Vikings. In time I would follow Skeddy's lead and leave the room, cover my ears and go "blablooblablooblablooblabloo" over and over until the winning kick or pass or run was thrown and kicked or whatever. In hindersite, that was pretty stupid. My mother shut the TV off on me once when I was about 13 or 14 because I through a shoe at the TV during a Packers game. I had to beg her and make a number of unreasonable promises to get her to let me turn it back on. There are some that might say this behavior is ridiculous, but I call it passion. And passion is a good quality, regardless of how it makes us act.

I recall a few times where brother Steve and I made a pact to "run to the yield sign and back in our underwear" if the Vikes pulled out a miracle win. I don't remember ever doing it though. It was always the fear of Audrey Kjellesvig or Jack Van Core driving by and seeing us.
