Vikings Make Playoffs, No One Cares
Since someone from the NFC North had to make the playoffs, and the Green Bay Packers managed to suck it up enough to descend into the nether regions of the league, the NFL let the Minnesota Vikings in after they narrowly got by the New York Giants junior varsity on Sunday.
Yeah, the VIkings inspiring effort in front of their home fans… Wait a second…
That’s right, the Vikings needed a late comeback to squeak out a one-point victory against the Giants, who were featuring the imposing David Carr at quarterback during the second half of the game.
Impressive, shitbags. Very impressive.
So on their way to the Super Bowl (hahahaha… remember that horseshit?), the Vikings and their world-class fans apparently forgot to care.
As of Wednesday morning, the dickwads from Minneapolis still had 11,000 tickets remaining for Sunday’s playoff game. The NFL actually had to step in and grant the team a 24-hour extension on ticket sales, so the Vikings can try to avoid having their first (and only) playoff game this year blacked out in their home market.
The NFL has granted the Vikings a 24-hour extension on the television blackout deadline for their opening-round playoff game Sunday afternoon against Philadelphia at the Metrodome. That means the Vikings have until 3:30 p.m. Friday to reach a sellout and allow the game to be shown on local Fox affiliate KMSP (Ch. 9).
Can anyone imagine a playoff game being blacked out in Green Bay?
So here’s to you Minnesota – you and your know-it-all, fuckstick fans, and your scumbag, classless players. Happy New Year!
