Staring into the Abyss
Rob is right; barring some disaster, it is inevitable that Favre will break Marino's TD record. I can root against it, but I'm just a crazy obsessive trying to deny fate. I will now compensate by rooting like mad for Peyton Manning. Eventually he will break all the records, so I can just live in hope that Manning passes Favre quickly.

Once upon a time, the Priest Holmes Experience Featuring Randy Moss was a fantasy force to be reckoned with. The greatest fantasy football performer in history has flamed out, but at the 2006 draft, I ran around the house screaming like a buffoon when I was able to draft Randy Moss. Now he is the Experience's #4 WR, clearly behind Steve Smith and Marvin Harrison and surprisingly behind Reggie Williams. "And yonder all before us lie/ Deserts of vast eternity."
Is Jesus cool? 97% say yes, 3% say maybe.
At Hamline's 2006 performance of Jesus Christ Superstar, the answer to this poll question was shown in pie graph form. For some reason, I still think it is funny.
So when I want to ask, "What chance do the Vikings have to win in Seattle?," I want to give "No chance," "Very little chance," or "Some chance" as the choices. Frankly, I'm writing it off as a loss just so I can feel good if the Vikes happen to win. When Daunte and Randy were here, I always figured there was any game the Vikes could win, because you never really know when you might get one of those 150 yard, 3 TD games from Moss. Less than two years after Moss and Culpepper played their last game together, the Viking offense is now awful; I watch it with little hope. And while I have confidence in the defense, the secondary does still show a penchant for giving up pass completions. Agent Smith might just torch the Viking D for lots of first downs. Oh well, I have some hope.
Also, I hate when the Vikes play at 3:15.
