Received some messages from folks critizing me for my "it's not if the Vikings will lose but when" piece in the Indy last week. Doesn't make me any less of a fan to prepare for the worst. Part of being a Vikings fan is being conditioned for the worst possible outcome to minimize the agony. It will be a beautiful day if the Vikings win two more games and you all line up and poke fingers in my face and say "whatdya think about your Vikings now!?" I'd hope to give you a high five and a butt slap.
