Part of the schtick of this blog has always been that I care too much, but that on a rational level I know I care too much. Well, I still care too much, and I still know it. I continue to avoid following football news (I keep up from the periphery as not to miss anything big), but still things will come along to kick me in the ear.
And I still dream about the Vikings.
Last night I dreamed I went back in time. While in the recent past, I bumped into the Vikings' skill position players. I implored them: hold onto the ball tight. In that game, fumbling could be your undoing. Make sure to grip the ball tight and DON'T FUMBLE.
Apparently they listened: they proceeded to dominate the Saints. In my dream. In one vivid image, the Vikings were already leading 17-0 when they called an end-around pass, Percy Harvin hitting a leaping Sidney Rice in the back of the endzone. In my dream.
Tell me, dear reader: if you dreamed like this, what would you do?
