Preseason football, baby! Not much to like about it, except for maybe this.
Blair Walsh is a kicker. He was drafted by the stinking Minnesota Vikings in the sixth round in 2012. So clearly, if you draft a kicker, you think that kicker is going to be your kicker for a long time.
You will remember Walsh gloriously missing a 27-yard shot that would have won the game against the Seattle Seahawks in a 2016 wild card game. The Vikings, the formidable division champs that they were, lost that game.
Do you know why? Because losers fucking lose.
The Vikings released Walsh last November. It’s true that he was missing all kinds of kicks. Four extra points, in fact.
On a side note, do you know why the Vikings’ main color is purple? Because that’s the color you turn when you choke.
Walsh is on the Seattle Seahawks now. That clown show played the stink-ass Vikings in week two of the preseason. Walsh went out and nailed a 52-yard field goal.
What’s better is he pointed over to the Vikings and, we presume, head coach One Eye. It’s kind of like what we all say to the Minnesota Vikings everyday — fuck you, you stinking scumbags! — personified in the form of Blair Walsh.
You tell ’em, kicky!
No fanbase deserves the misery the Vikings have instilled than this fanbase. I hope this team comtinues their every 11 year curse of reaching the NFC title game every 11 years and finding some inexplicable way to lose. It is great, as was this. 2020 will be great.
