The greatest time of the year is finally just around the corner. With the champions of the AFC and NFC now decided, we are now all waiting anxiously for Super Bowl Sunday. We’ll have to sit through a grueling 2 weeks of listening to breakdowns and projections of what each team has to offer, what players are going to shine and who will disappoint. We’ll be wading past the stench of what the Pro Bowl has become, and listening to early predictions of the who won the most important award of the day – the funniest super bowl commercial.
Finally the day will come and you will get to watch your beloved Vikings-West take on Peyton Manning and his Ponies on a battle between the best defense and the best offense of the NFL. Former Vikings players, such as Heath Farwell (1, maybe 2 special teams tackles), Tarvaris Jackson (pro-bowl benchwarmer skills), Sidney Rice (Injured Reserve) and Percy Harvin (1 catch, then ruled out of the game due to injury after getting his tongue stuck to the Metlife Stadium goalpost). And of course, former Offensive Coordinator Bill Musgrave will show us all how great he can be at calling running plays, just so long as he has the #1 defense in the NFL to take the pressure off.
So, Vikings faithful, which team will you be rooting for? The one that boasts all the great players and coaches who we let slip away, or the one that simply boasts good players and coaches all around? Frankly, I’m rooting for the Broncos. How can anyone not want them to win after watching Richard Sherman’s victory speech?
