Vikes take lead in NFC North, Shame Bears and Pack
What a great end to a great 4 day vacation. In addition to the Pack entering a nebulous late season quagmire of hopelessness and despair (seriously - they gave up 86 points in the last two weeks?!? HA!), the Vikes played a FOOTBALL game and pounded the punk Bears on national TV. This happy event puts the 7-5 Vikes on top of the NFC north with the Bears back at 6-6 and the lowly pack licking themselves at 5-7. ho Ho! The only drawback to the game was my old boy from Fargo, Jimmy Kleinsausser, getting the TD he scored called back. Also of note was the disturbing haircut on display by Jared Allen. The "Power Mullett" was truly a site to see, and will be the subject of more scrutiny here in the future. If you are so inclined, highlights of the glorious rout of the hapless bears can be seen here.
