I'll be stepping away from blogging for a little while for personal reasons (my son broke his leg, so even more of my time will be devoted to kids, and I need a lot of time for my teaching responsibilities. I'll still have time to watch football--of course!--but little time to write about it, and no time to write about it well. He broke his leg Sunday morning: finding out later that the Vikings won and the Packers lost made the day like eating a turd covered in chocolate frosting).
I told Holy Hitter and J'Rod to feel free to pick up the slack in my absence, so you may see them posting on the Vikings. I've also talked to some others about possibly contributing to the blog. And I hope to see you again in the future.
We should have optimism for this 2009 season. While the Vikings trailed at halftime against two weak opponents, they also have two 14 point road wins. This team used to suck on the road. Maybe Favre is taking them places. Maybe this is the year things change.
Cheer the Vikings hard, suckers. Cheer the Vikings hard.
