Football is fun, but devotion to a team sometimes transcends the concept of fun into something else. It's a spiritual experience, an immersion into Fate, connecting your being to an event beyond your own will. I expect to spend Sunday a nervous wreck (I've been physically nervous for the Vikes for days, not to mention the added tension of dealing with getting tickets and such).
In Saturday's playoff games, the road teams came in with better records, but the home teams won. Hopefully Thunderdome is Thunderdome.
