Vikings vs Chicago To Be Played at TCF Bank Stadium – Maybe

Minnesota Vikings fans have a cold, cold game to look forward to.  The latest reports state the University of Minnesota TCF Bank Stadium will host the Vikings vs Bears.

Making preparations

With a high temp of 22 degrees and a low of 6 degrees predicted for game day, it will be interesting to see how many so-called Vikings die-hard fans will be willing to brave the elements only to watch a mish-mash of players on the field.

I think you’ll see many empty seats even though the stadium holds 12,000 less than the Metrodome.  The fight will be to be one of the 12,000 to get a refund, not secure seating.

Trent Dilfer Tells NFL Fans to Forget Favre’s Last 3 Years

Trent Dilfer gave a heartfelt plea to all NFL fans on behalf of Brett Favre… “just forget about the last three years” he said Sunday night on ESPN. Trying to make a case for fans to forget about recent history and think about the big picture.

Left 2007 Right 2010

Let’s think about that for a moment. If Favre had retired from the Green Bay Packers in 2007:

  • He would definitely be healthier
  • He probably wouldn’t have aged 10 years
  • He would be just two years away from earning a first year ballot Hall of Fame spot
  • He would have never met Jenn Sterger
  • He would have never gone through a sexting scandal
  • He would have the adoration of every NFL fan in the country
  • He would be a hero instead of a has-been

Maybe he should try clicking his heels together three times and chant “There’s no place like home”

Note: Unfortunately, ESPN seems to have removed the Dilfer video, so I can’t show you here. But if I find it, I’ll plug it in.
