An Open Letter To the Minnesota Viking Faithful

Dear Viking fans:

I was able to catch the end of your game with the Pittsburgh Steelers today just after the Green Bay Packers handed the Cleveland Browns their lunch with a 31-3 drubbing in Cleveland.

For a moment it looked like old man Favre was going to do it again, eh? I can imagine how excited you must have been! But then there was that interception and run back that put it away for the Steelers. I felt so bad for all of you. After all, he descended like Jesus himself on a cloud above the Blowhard dome and performed the miracle of the loaves and fishes a couple of times in a row.

He's like that. you know. Maybe you will get used to it. Sometimes he throws those darn interceptions at such inopportune times.
If you have time, you really should drive to Green Bay and plop your bottom on a bar stool at any of the many sports bars in Title Town.

Folks there can tell you how many times the old gunslinger won the big games just at the last moment. They will also tell you that he sometimes can't quite get his gun out of its holster - and it will happen at a very crucial time.

Now here's the thing. If you are going to love him when he wins, then you will have to learn to love him when he loses too -or you will return to being miserable and heartbroken again.

Good luck with the rest of your season. And remember: "IT IS JUST A GAME".
