Ancient history that makes me feel warm inside

    NFL Network is replaying the telecast of the 1998 NFC Championship game right now.

    After the Falcons tied the game, the Vikings had 49 seconds and all of their timeouts to work with to let one of the greatest offenses of all-time show their stuff. What do they do? Randall Cunningham dicks around on a scramble and they take one shot at a bomb to Randy Moss that was Scud-like in its accuracy before taking a knee with 30 seconds left and two of their timeouts left on the board!

    That never ceases to amaze me. Dennis Green, you're a glorious dumb ass, AND I LOVE YOU FOR IT!

    Metrodome fans are booing like hell on the telecast. If I had a time machine, I'd put on a Packers jersey, and somehow beam myself into the Metrodome at just that moment.

    I would not be on a mission of gloating, no, I'd be on a mission of mercy to make sure as many Vikings fans as possible spewed forth with the biggest, loudest, most passionate boos of their lives to make sure they got their money's worth for one of the dumbest decisions I've ever seen a coach make. A decision that would ultimately keep the Vikings Super Bowl win-free to this day.

    After that, I'd spike someone's viking horn, tip over Ragnar's Harley, kick a random Purple People Eater in the balls, and then I'd gloat. :D

    You're a dick. And Dennis Green is even worse.

    Hey man, don't kill the messenger, I just chronicle the fail.

    Just go ahead and say it..."Nate Poole." You know you want to. I'm going to go put my head in the oven.

    Nah. I'm like Tony Montana. I won't do the inevitable ... someone else will ride in like Manny and do it for me.

    That was a great game. Epic chokes are always good fun.

    Gary Fucking Anderson.

    The highest-scoring offense in NFL history at the time (right?) should never have the biggest game of the year come down to the kicker. That game was lost before Anderson put foot to ball on that ill-fated attempt.

    Oh, most definitely. Not going to lie - I'm waiting to see just how the Vikings will fuck this one up. I have a bad feeling that some Giants are going to join my most-hated list in just over a week.

    Y'all might as well go ahead and go to your room. Rosie will be along soon enough.

    Well, BC, if they beat Atlanta, the Giants game won't matter. If Tarvaris Jackson doesn't revert to being Tarvaris Jackson for one more week, the Vikings will be fine. Until the playoffs, when they'll lose at home in the wild card round.
