Hey Connor! You’re on Viking Gab!

20070515-fat-lady-sings-1
My son Connor made the High School Varsity baseball team this week. He also tore his meniscus cartilage and has to rehab his knee. But it hasn’t stopped him from playing. He started playing baseball just 3 years ago and he tops out at about 82 MPH on the mound. Please forgive a fathers pride.

No, the boy is not a Viking fan. He likes the San Diego Chargers. But I can respect that, as he started liking them when they were 2-14 and has remained loyal ever since. We watch football together and although we may argue who is the NFL’s best running back. ( Yes Connor, LaDanian is great, but Adrian is the best …. Period !)

However, there are a few thing’s we both agree on. First, we both agree that the Green Bay Packers are something between the top layer that develops on stagnant water and an infectious disease. But then again, everyone knows that !

We also share a healthy loathing for fair weather fans. Seriously, is there anything more obnoxious then a Cowboys fan when they are winning ?

We both agree that the whole Brett Favre annual retirement/un-retirement business is hilarious and ridiculous at the same time !

We may not agree on which team will be better this season, but what we do agree on is that football is king, and we cannot wait until camp opens in August. We both pray for the dream scenario of a Vikings/Chargers super bowl while at the same time we both Fear it!

Football to us is like the gladiators were to the Romans. It is an outlet for our primitive aggressive behaviors. The psychological equivalent of Ritalin.

Why do you think Football is so important to the two of us ( as well as about 50 million other people ) ? Before anyone gets critical, how many of you enjoy the so-called “Reality shows”. Same idea. Why do we go to the movies and pull for the bad guy to get exactly what he deserves ? Is any of this sinking in ?

But why do we need to analyze this ? No need to micro manage. Just sit back and enjoy ! The season is fast approaching…….. GO VIKINGS !

P.S. The Fat lady is warming up !

    Only thing worse than fair-weather Cowboy fans are fair-weather Patriot fans. Those are the worst.
