A fitting metaphor for their season.
The shithole that the Minnesota Vikings call home, the Metrodome, collapsed overnight.
Or at least the roof did. There is now a hole in the middle of it from the build-up of snow — the Cities reportedly got close to 20 inches yesterday.
The Vikings game against the New York Giants, which was already moved to Monday night because the Giants were stuck in Kansas City, has now been moved to Detroit’s Ford Field.
Although the Vikings are a laughingstock, the postponement of the game gives Brett Favre, who has a badly sprained shoulder, another day to heal and extend his consecutive-games streak. Favre wouldn’t have been able to play if the game went on as planned, today.
I don’t buy this “Favre wouldn’t have been able to play,” stuff. Is this coming from a doctor? Until I hear something to that effect or see a link to a doctor saying he wouldn’t be cleared to play, I call bullshit, and I’m calling out the carefully constructed media narrative for what it is.
Well this actually isn’t good for packers fans seeing as we actually need the vikings to win against the giants and the bears for our playoff hopes. Them not having home field for the giants rather blows but meh if the vikings can find a way to screw something up they will.
