Last football post until the draft, I promise. My hatred for all things Minnesota (sans Twins, I actually like them) runs deep....that loss was just too beautiful. Here's an impressive list of bumble-fuck Vikings events throughout the years. They've suffered more than Cubs fans...I heard Czabe list a couple of these the other day.:
0-4 in Super Bowls
0-5 last 5 NFC title games with three heartbreaks: on Sunday, 1998, 1987. I really don't recall 1987, but I read an article that says it's worse than 1998 and 2009 combine. Whatever. Throw in a 41-0 whitewash in the 2001 NFC Title game.
The Love Boat
The Hershael Walker trade
Korey Stringer (not funny, a tragedy)
Jim Marshall running the wrong way.
Finally - the Brett Favre interception. The savior. The guy who was your mortal enemy for 16 years was now the Messiah. Minnesota media voted Favre coming to the Vikings as the biggest sports story of the decade. Not Favre leading Minny to a Super Bowl trophy...just him signing with the Vikes. And in the end, the player you despised more than anyone was welcomed in like a God failed when it mattered most. Karma's a bitch.
