The Vikings repulsed

Posted in arizona, football, sports with tags , , on December 7, 2009 by All Conference Vintage

The Arizona Cardinals expelled the Minnesota Norgwegian Invaders last night, as our bigs throttled Jared Allen and the rest of the vaunted Vikes pass rush.  Warner carved up the Viking’s clearly confused secondary and Brett Favre was harried on nearly every play, uncharacteristically underachieving on third down conversions.  

Really, it’s just an excuse to post this rad Vikings button from their inaugural season.  I forget from whence I grabbed that image, sorry.


Bear down!

This is just a random found image, but this is exactly what everyone in Chicago looked like in 1986.

Bears looked good last night, but even though I am from Chicago, I’m a lot more cautiously optimistic than average. Their secondary looked like tissue paper as Denver’s lesser tier receivers and Kyle friggin’ Orton had no problem carving them up last night.

it seems that something gets in my eye every time I watch this classic.

Gayle Sayers is one of the all time greats on and off the field.

This is a world of win for me- great portrait, great name, great leather helmet, and an ACES old Yale Bulldogs logo (to be stolen later).
