Happy Green Bay lost in the playoffs yesterday. The team seemed quite cocky. Sure, they had a great season, but there is a fine line between confident and cocky and I hate cocky. Rodgers and his stupid championship belt touchdown dance … Get over yourself. The best part about the loss is they get to join the Vikings as the only teams to finish the season 15-1 and not go to the super bowl and at least Minnesota won a game before losing in the championship game.
I started writing letters to my unborn daughter. I will give them to her when she is older; maybe an adult. I don’t know, but I am enjoying this.

Did you say food?
… Huh? Food?
Whatever. Fuck you.
Up at 5am on a Saturday. And why the fuck not? It’s not like I have to work. It’s not like I needed to get up for anything for another 3 hours. No, I was just going to be sleeping. But why sleep when I can be wide awake and watch it slowly get light outside? I could fuck with my Samsung Galaxy for another few hours before i trade it in on an iPad 2. No, it’ll just piss me off more because it does not operate like it should. Fucking thing made me go back to Apple again. I wanted to switch, but it just sucked. No, I’ll just fucking sit here, listen to the quiet, and daydream that I am sleeping. Mother fuck.

The game of professional football has changed over the years. There is no loyality from teams to players or players to teams. No loyality from owners to coaches. Fantasy football has made it so people care more about individual player stats than team records. Hurts a little to admit it, but I’m beginning to not care about teams and team records. Yes, that means I am beginning to not care about the Vikings. No, not because they suck this season. I’ve been a Vikings fan for well over 20 years and they’ve sucked more seasons than not. I believe a crappy season this year will put the Vikings in LA. And why not move them? There is more money to be made in LA than in Minnesota. LA wants a team; Minnesota doesn’t seem to think it is a priority to make sure they stay in Minneapolis. LA will build a state of the art stadium with no team locked up. Minnesota wants the Vikes to continue to use the antiquated Metrodome – even after the roof collapse. Switch St. Louis to the black and Blue NFC North and make the LA Whatevers part of the NFC West. Just make the move. However, I can’t support a Vikings team based out of LA. It’s just not happening.
This waivering really started for me during the lock-out. I wanted football, but I was pissed that these idiots couldn’t work out their issues prior and had to drag the fans through the nonsense. The whole thing left a sour taste in my mouth with the NFL in general. Kinda put me from both feet in to one foot out. And the Vikes take the brunt of it because I just don’t care this year like I did previous years. The excitement was tainted before the season even began.
Compounding the lockout issue is my location – football is a community and I’m tired of being a one man purple community among my friends here in the desert. I go to a Cardinals game and it’s fun to be surrounded by other Cardinals fans. I get none of that with the Vikes; ever. I’m sure it’s different in Minneapolis. Most of my friends are fans of teams that rival the Vikes – Packers, Bears, Cowboys. Talking shit with them can be fun, yes, but I’m kinda over all of it.
So, do I jump ship to another team or give up on teams altogether and just watch the games and enjoy them? I’m leaning towards the second option – seems a lot less stressful and more enjoyable. No decision yet, but, after over 20 years of being a Vikings fan, I do think I’ve bought my last bit of purple attire.
Nothing worse than a little sphincter backsplash from a public toilet. Don’t forget to lay down the barrier, usually in the form of toilet paper or ass gaskets. Keep your sphincter dry during public poos.
