A Look At The NFC and AFC Championships

All we gotta do is get there. Bring it home. For the first time in history, become a Super Bowl team at our home stadium. Once we get there, anything can happen. If the Titans can beat the Chiefs and the Jaguars can beat the Steelers, the Vikings can beat the Patriots at home and become the best football team on the planet to put a cap on what would be the greatest sports season in Minnesota history. It should be easy right? Getting there? The Purple and Gold are…

Petter’s Playoff Preview: Sending the Saints Marching Home

Happy 2018 y’all. It’s been months since my last post. Hopefully one or two of you remember me. I couldn’t pass up the chance to write a blog previewing the first Vikings playoff matchup this year — the year they’re facing the highest expectations since before I was born. So here goes. We all remember Week 1: Vikings throttle the Saints 29-19, and people write New Orleans off as a sub-par squad that’ll probably miss the playoffs.

Results Are In: Fans Pick Which MN Team They Want To Win A Title

We might be on to something here. These polls are fun, and I like seeing what people think. With this one, I guessed the Vikings would win, but I didn’t see it being by this big of a margin. This poll crossed the screens of 1,482 Twitter users, and 483 people couldn’t scroll past without voting. I’m not sure how the rest didn’t vote, because I can’t scroll past a poll and not vote.

Charles Johnson Knows How To Tug On A Guy’s Heartstrings

Really Charles Johnson? You couldn’t let us be mad for two seconds before pulling a stunt like this? You had me close to tears when I first saw this. Not only do you tweet out a photo of the Vikings wide receivers right after the season’s end, but you attach one of the most emotional quotes from perhaps the best football movie in existence. I know you can probably quote that scene word-for-word, but I bet you watched the whole scene again even though you’ve seen it a million times. This…
