Minnesota loves you, Paul Edinger. Of the five wins on the Vikings record this year, three of those games have been won by just three points -- Edinger kicks. Finally, kickers are getting the respect they deserve!
Uhm. OK, maybe not. But still -- if Edinger can't get home to Florida this Thursday, or wherever the hell he's from, I am sure he would be welcome at any Minnesotan table.
Despite the win, I can't say I enjoyed Monday's game all that much. Watching the Vikings play the Packers always makes me feel mildly sick because I want so badly for the Vikings to win and I am so painfully aware of their incredible ability to find creative ways to lose.
Now that we no longer have a losing record, however, I am, of course, plotting out where I will sit during the parade after the Vikings win the Super Bowl. We don't need no stinkin' offense. THIS IS OUR YEAR, BABY!
Here's one of the things I like about the Internets: you can be sitting around and say something like, "Have you ever noticed that the same guy's voice is in just about every cartoon made over the last 20 years? I wonder what that guy's name is?"
Then, with a minimum of effort you can sort out that the guy you're thinking of is Rob Paulsen. Then, you can try to remember the lyrics to the "Gummi Bears" theme song, give up and find that, too.
