Skol...Crickets, crickets, crickets. Yep, we all knew how this fairy tale would end but some of us refused to believe it...Like myself. If you look back on the last 4 NFC championships that I can remember, they all ended the same way as last night.
1987, the Vikings drop a pass in the end zone against Washington and lose a heart breaker. In 1997, it was Gary Anderson and wide right to lose to Atlanta. 2000, Minnesota was routed in New York. In 2009 Brett Favre and "bountygate" lose to New Orleans. And last night in Philly, well, you get the idea. Sure the Vikings went to 4 Superbowls in the 60's and 70's, but that was like 16 presidents ago. (Lost them all too) Somehow this year felt different right? Yep, that's what I kept telling myself.
Nope, same ol' Vikings. Looks like the only Vikings I'll be watching in the future are on the History Channel! :(
