Someone needs a slap from Bud Grant

Idiots. The dome in Minnesota collapsed because of snow, and not for the first time. What kind of idiot builds a dome in fucking Minnesota that can’t handle snow? The same idiots who send Al Franken to the Senate I guess.

The Giants sucked for the first 20 years of my life so I needed to have secondary teams to root for in the playoffs (or even after early October when the Giants were mathematically eliminated every year of my life until I was in my 20s).

I liked the Dolphins and the Vikings (and Tampa, but that was an incipient hipster/ironic deal).

The Vikings made the playoffs every year because their division sucked and nobody wanted to play in Minnesota late in the year.

Bud Grant was a bastid, he would not allow all that wussy cold-weather gear no matter the weather.

So if the Vikes had a home game in the playoffs they won. It was that easy, nobody, but nobody, wanted to play there in December and January. One year they had to play a playoff game in LA (Rams) and it rained like hell and was cold (for southern CA), so the Vikes won that game too.

So what does a franchise that depends on crappy weather to win do? That’s right, build a domed stadium. And not just any domed stadium, but one with a crappy dome that can’t handle 15 inches of snow.

Idiots. And now I probably won’t get to see the Giants play them (wherever they end up playing) because the idiots in Minnesota built a dome that can’t handle snow.

WTF is wrong with Minnesota? Is it the proximity to Wisconsin?

Unbelievable vid below the fold

That really makes you want to see a game there, huh?

I think we’ve seen our last game in that particular stadium unless they add an actual roof that can stand up to some snow.

Gee, who wouldathunk that it might snow in Minnesota?

    Dammit, I was trying to get the comment in that I expected the Foreskins to miss the PAT but I was too slow.
    I wasn’t wrong, just slow.

    I believe the game will be on DirectTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket tomorrow (if that helps). At least they aren’t moving the game back to New York, like they did with the New Orleans Saints after Katrina. That allowed the Giants an additional home game – which allowed them to win the division that year.

    I have the football package so I’m set. They surprised me, I thought for sure they wouldn’t show the game outside NY and Minn.

    I went to the New Orleans home gameat Giants Stadium. I just got online that morning and got two tickets and cruised up 95 to the game. It were fun.

    I was happy it wasn’t in New Orleans. They always lose there. I went to one game, it was embarassingly ugly. That was the game the guy pulled the cell phone out of the goal post.
    At least I got to drown my sorrows in the French Quarter.

    Man, watching this game is making me schizoid.
    I really hate the Cowboys, I really don’t like the Eagles, but it’s not as visceral as the Cowboys.
    It would be helpful for the Giants if the Eagles lose.
    I keep rooting against the Cowboys but being happy when they do something.

    It’s like siding with Hitler to defeat Stalin before Stalin can nuke England or something. Sure that would be bad, but Hitler is, well, Hitler.

    It just kills me to not want Jerry Jones to cry.
