  4. discover the chapin sisters

this star tribune article has some of the wacky stats from sunday’s vikings-giants game. but the only one that really matters is the score. next week is a monday night game against the cheeseheads.

culpepper will miss the remainder of the season, pretty much guaranteeing that the rest of the season is going to be exceptionally painful to watch. i’m so glad i sprung for the sunday ticket package now.

i may have to rethink my policy of not starting to drink until after half time.

i was checking out the schedule of nfl games on fox 11 for the rest of the season, and when i realized that i was only going to get to see maybe three or four more vikings games this year, i decided i had to take drastic measures to rectify that.

time to stock up on cider.

football season is nigh — the vikings have already won one meaningless preseason game, and their second meaningless preseason game against the new york jets will actually be on cbs on friday night.

looking at the regular season schedule, it seems there’s only two other games that will obviously be nationally broadcast — a monday night game against the packers, and a sunday night game on christmas against the ravens.

the new ownership might be good for the vikings, although they don’t win any points for expecting two-thirds of the new stadium costs to be picked up by taxpayers. but at least they’re saying the right things about moving the team being off the table.

as nice as it might be to have a football team in los angeles again, i don’t think i could have ever come to terms with it being yet another team stolen from minnesota.
