And the reviews are in for my scintilating performance in week 1:
The media loves to spin this yarn on how Vikings players went to Favre's house to beg him to play in 2010.
If this is true, it may have been a waste of time and money.
Others think the Hickocrite put himself ahead of the team again, eschewing training camp with his teammates.
The lack of preparation showed in the Vikings' 14-9 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Not only did Favre throw for an unimpressive 171 yards on 15 completions, but he added to his all-time record for interceptions by one.
Perhaps Father Time has finally caught up on the soon-to-be 41 year old who was seen hobbling around in the loss.
Vikings fans can only hope Week 1 was an aberration, and Favre will play close to his 2009 form soon.

Here's a tip for you:
If you are going to pretend to be Brett Favre, make sure you remember to talk in the first person throughout your post, not just in the 1st sentence. Practice practice practice.

Wilf just has his sights set on moving the team to Los Angeles, many people don't remember the North Stars fiasco, it looks like this is headed the same way. This is why I have always thought that team owners should be from the area that the team is based in and should not be allowed to seel or move the team out of that area. They want to make it a busniess instead of a sport, then be a good businessman and make it work where you are.........WITHOUT asking for taxpayer funding.

I love my Vikings but screw you Wilf, go back to New Jersey and stay there.

The vikings arent going anywheres.The NFL wants the Vikings in Minnesota and all the candidates for Governor say they want a stadium.No more Pawlenty.It would cost Wilf allot of money to move the team.Im pretty sure that theyll have a stipulation that keeps the Vikings name and colors and history here cause that was the plan last year.And they also want a 40 year lease on the new stadium.So dont sweat it.There here to stay.

The NFL is powerless to keep the Vikings in Minnesota, thanks to Al Davis.

Sure I will move the team to LA. Trivia time: What is the ONLY franchise ever to move to Mineapolis? That would be the dreadful Washington Senators

Why would they move to LA?.Both the Chargers and the Raiders are blacked out this week.And the Chargers are supposed to be a playoff team.
