I don’t like this short week stuff.  The Vikings only get one practice to prepare for their next opponent, and hack bloggers only get three days to speculate about the outcome.  Then, after tomorrow night’s game, it will feel like forever before we get to see our Vikes play again.

Hey, by the way, lets plan on meeting right here at kickoff for a game time Live Chat!

Okay, onto this week’s links:


  1. If AP says it’s real then well…I’d say…I hope so! Don’t be gettin’ my hopes up and then lose at home on a short week to the Bucs. Just don’t do it.

    I saw that our old buddy Mr. Blair will go into the ring tomorrow. About time! He was probably our best defensive player for a while there. Still leads the team in blocked kicks and is 2nd in all-time tackles, I think. Great player! Great dude who is purple thru and thru!

    Does this also mean we will be donning the throwbacks in this game? Anyone?
    I hope so, it’s primetime. Lets show off those cool uniforms! Those will someday be back full time.

  2. Don’t mess with me, cart. Are we really going to wear throwbacks this week? Could they really become permanent? These costumes they currently wear are embarrassing, but I have given up on hoping there are enough people to force the return to the traditional look. Now you got my hopes up again.

  3. I believe the Vikings won’t be wearing the throwbacks at all this season due to switching to the NIKE uniforms. Hopefully things have changed but unfortunately, I don’t believe we will see them in 2012.

    • Yikes. Coach watches that, and he’ll probably go into full rut.

      Someone should warn Mrs. Coach.
