Good morning all you happy Vikings! The Pro Bowl has come and gone, it’s the Super Bowl on Sunday, and given everything that has happened this season, it’s hard to give a crap about either.
As a result, I’m not going to sum up anything that happened last night, and it’s just too painful to look ahead to the Colts v Saints, because we should have been the ones who lined up to kick Manning’s ass!
The bittersweet nature of this years Pro Bowl for Vikings’ players is commented on by the Star Tribune today. And there isn’t much to add to that really. It looks like the guys enjoyed themselves which is what mattered, but it is a kick in the goolies to play in the same stadium as the SB, knowing you could have been there.
And that’s it, no more Pro Bowl talk for another year. Unless there’s any more stories around Bryant McKinnie, which there probably will be…
Vikings Update has an interesting insight into the sort of abuse that was thrown at Brett Favre during the NFC Championship game, if you need another reason to feel bitter about the game, and to hate the Saints then read on. Personally, I can’t wait for us to return to the Superdome next season and exact some revenge. Screw a cover 2 formation, let’s just sick every man, woman and child in Purple on Drew Brees. I’ll literally* shell out the $20000** for every late hit we unleash upon his midget ass!
**the NFL accept monopoly money for fines don’t they?
And after what’s been a very quiet Monday, it’s time again for…. FAVRE WATCH
Today’s headline is a quote from HRH Jared Allen:
“Whatever Brett decides. We obviously respect him and want him back as a teammate. He was a great teammate. A guy in his position has every right to retire and if he wants to come back we’ll welcome him. Take your time. Make the right decision. Do the right thing, Brett. Do the right thing.”
You heard the man Brett, do the right thing! You know it makes sense.
Bleacher Report has an article on the Legacy of Brett Favre
We are left to wonder whether signing Donovan McNabb would be such a good idea after he “pulled a Favre” in the Pro Bowl last night… Still, it’s better than pulling a T-Jack.
And finally, Serena Williams said last week that she has drawn inspiration from the Silver Fox. Talking last week she said “He went out a champ[…] Hopefully, he’ll come back.”
And that’s it for today, I’ve now got to watch some snowboarding, whilst simultaneously trying to ignore the replay of the NFC Championship which is playing on the other TV in the room… it burns!
