More sports stuff...

Okay... it's been a while since we talked sports... so here we go!

1) Vikings... as much as it pains me to say it, the Minnesota Vikings suck. Yesterday, we saw a struggling Eagles quarterback look like the Donovan McNabb of old... simply by playing the Vikes. Perhaps this team can market itself as the new fountain of youth... where washed-up QB's go to feel young again!

But who am I kidding? Three pathetic performances.. two by our QB's and one from our high-priced Offensive Line. It would have been four, but thankfully Tavaris Jackson was out with a hurt pinky finger. This is a team that looks even more unfocused and adrift than during Tice's last year at the Vikings helm. I hate to say it, but the only pressing question come the post-season for Minnesota will be who's responsible for making sure the other players keep their hands off the strippers at the Super Bowl Party!

2) Red Sox... the lovable losers of the 20th Century look to become the Yankees of the 21st Century. This is a team that's caused more choking cases than Anaphylactic Shock! First, the Yankees in 2004 in one of the all-time choke jobs that would make Jake "Raging Bull" La Motta proud! Then it was Cleveland, who had a 3-1 lead in this year's ALCS before Boston decided to wake up and play baseball. Now it was the Rockies, who were more outmatched than if the BoSox were playing the 1976 Bad News Bears (forget Billy Bob! Gimme Walter Matthau!)

Whoever is responsible for keeping Theo Epstein on board as the GM had best be sending the "boy wonder" a ton of Omaha Steaks each and every winter to keep him put! Come to think of it... Theo, how would you feel about coming to Minnesota?

3) College Football... Why do I love College Football? Take a look

Any questions?

Man, if this isn't cultural elitism at its worst! Perhaps if NASCAR had Chardonnay sponsors instead of beer sponsors....

Any chance I can get to the ballot box early this year?
