Mayor Wants A Ride On The Hood Of Randy’s Car

Randy Moss is one of my favorite Vikings ever.  When he was banished traded to the Oakland Raiders I was incredibly sad.  I always thought he got a bad reputation for no real good reason, and have made a point to cheer for him wherever he’s playing.  I mean, the guy put the Vikings on the map for the first time in a long time.

As Mark Craig points out it is no coincidence that the Vikings current sellout streak started in 1998, the year the Vikings drafted Randy Moss.

Recently, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak appeared in an incredibly stupid little back and forth on MSNBC with Green Bay Mayor James T. Schmitt.

Rybak took some unprompted and unnecessary jabs at Randy Moss.

“I think there are some times when a fit just doesn’t work with the team anymore. Like Randy Moss may be the greatest receiver anywhere around, but I don’t want that guy to ever come back into the city of Minneapolis again. He was a jerk when he was here, and, uh, Brett wasn’t a jerk when he was over there. There’s a different deal, but sometimes fits don’t work in football. So, hey, he fits beautifully here and we are happy to take him.”

Moss wasn’t a saint, but all of his antics were essentially harmless.  In fact, I’d say that if some of the politicians and corporate fat cats, that Rybak cohorts with on a daily basis,  behaved like Randy Moss… well, that would be an improvement.

So, if the Vikings host the Patriots before Moss retires, then perhaps Moss would like to cast a vote for Rybak by using the following gesture:

    Joe buck is a worthless neocon puppet of the Fox BS team. His knees hurt from both being a hypocrite and praying to rupert murdoch’s tiny skin flute

    Great blog. I have to disagree about Moss though. I’ve said many times “Randy Moss is an ass” when he was in Minnesota he was our ass. Then he moved to the Raiders. He was smart enough to realize that the Patriots were his last chance and they weren’t going to put up with his childish crap. TO probably figured it out as well in Buffalo. TO’s problem is the Bill aren’t the Pats.
