Death, Taxes & the Vikings
Like death & taxes, one thing you can count on is the Minnesota Vikings. Year after year, they'll tease their fans with the hope that this is the year they'll finally win the Super Bowl.
As a Packers fan, it's great to see the Vikings yank their fans' chains. It's even more fun because their fans don't really even need a yanking. They shift with the latest score anyway. Check out the latest Vikings fan poll on the Star Tribune:
And compare that to the polls we highlighted a few weeks ago.
It's not that Vikings fans will never learn. It's that they learn and then forget and then learn again and then forget again. It's the Eternal Sunshine of the Vikings Mind.
I think the only thing that will break the chain of abuse is the team's inevitable move to California.

|It's kind of exciting how little anyone outside of WI is talking about the Packers so far. All of the NFC talk is about the Cowboys.
Also, have you noticed how almost no one in the national media seems to realize the kind of season Aaron Rodgers just had? It's like they can't talk about it because it makes the Packers look right about not taking Favre back.
