Yes, the weekend has arrived and we Vikings fans have to find something else to do because our team is in the most dreaded of all weeks in the NFL. The Bye Week! For 8-months we did what we could to put our minds on other things, patiently waiting for Football season to start back up so we could see if our team has what it takes this year, and now after just 4-games we have to wait again.
So how does one spend the weekend knowing that he won’t get to watch his favorite team? There’s plenty of options, such as watching one of the other games, re-watching games from earlier in the year or your favorite games from years past, pretending you’re the coach and planning for how YOU would beat next week’s opponent and scanning the free agent market for players to replace those duds currently ruining your team (Christian, Erin, Charlie, Fusco, CBs, we’re looking at you), and maybe even finding something OTHER than football to pass the time!
Personally, I came across a great deal at target this afternoon and got the first four Police Academy movies, the three Naked Gun movies and Airplane all for less than $30, so I’m going to try to drown out my mind with some senseless 80s & 90s comedy. As you can see, it’s still not enough to keep me fully entertained, as I’m still here writing up a new blog. Maybe you can present a better idea for how to pass the weekend and stop thinking about just what it will take to get this team back on track.
