A Short List of Things I Miss About the Vikings

I Miss the Days When:
the Vikings used to win every once and a while.
Culpepper threw long bombs when no one was expecting it.
someone caught Culpepper’s throws.
Culpepper threw balls that someone could catch.
someone could actually defend Tice’s coaching.
Matt Birk played center, because then you were guaranteed the announcers would mention the fact that he went to Harvard at least three times.
Matt Birk played center, because at least someone would be playing.
Randy Moss acted like an idiot, because we could blame their failures on his showboating.
people were hyping this year’s Vikings as virtually unstoppable.
“Daunte’s House” was somewhere, which made me think, “man, it would be cool to ‘visit Daunte’s House’ on a Sunday.”
half the Vikings weren’t injured.
I wasn’t disappointed by two Twins teams.
I wasn’t actually considering developing an interest in hockey.
Culpepper was considered a sure-fire fantasy football player.
I didn’t cry myself to sleep.*

    Just because the Viks suck (again) this year doesn’t mean you have to insult us hockey fans ;) Yeah, I haven’t laughed so hard at a dissapointing team in a really long time. It’s been good for me, really…

    I’m not a Vikings fan in any way shape or form, but I did catch bits and pieces of this week’s game and I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, that was such a pathetic display.

    On the Fox 9 Morning News this morning, they said,
    “If you thought the Vikings were off to a rough start, you can take some comfort that the Green Bay Packers are 0-4 for the first time under Brett Favre.” Well, that actually did make me feel a little better.
