Lions 20 / Vikings 10: Vikings finish last in division fo...

Hey, I had to watch in a bar with no sound. Can someone tell me what happened on that second challenge? The replay showed his knee was clearly out-of-bounds....I was dumbfounded when the call stood! Enlightenment, please....  (Jan 2, 2011 | post #60)

Suspect says he was 'really high' on meth when he took ca...

"He's a really different guy when he's not high on Meth".....as if this is some sort of mitigating factor. That's like saying 'I know he likes to torture small animals and burn down buildings, but he's nice to his kids'. I would hope he has some decent tendencies- most of us do- but pointing to those as a way of offsetting the bad is ridiculous. He's a lowlife, and responsible for his actions- high or not. But I disagree with the posters who put the blame on the father- he was outside his own house and only gone 20 seconds. Just bad luck. If you've ever been around kids, you know you can't watch them at all times. Who among us has NOT gotten the kids all strapped in and then run inside to use the bathroom or grab some forgotten article. Leaving the car running was a mistake, but the fault was with the guy who STOLE the car, not the guy who provided the inadvertent opportunity. Again, trying to shift the blame...  (Dec 31, 2010 | post #16)

Wisconsin man's yarn about psychic girlfriend named 2010'...

My grandpa was a great knife sharpener, so good in fact, that you had to only use the knife in the dark. One time he forgot, and pulled the knife out of it's sheath with the light on- and that knife had such a keen edge, that just the shadow of it's blade cut off two table legs and split a chair in two before he reached the light switch.  (Dec 29, 2010 | post #11)

Police: Idaho man hit teen on flight over cell phone use

They should charge the kid with terrorism. I mean, if we have to turn off our electronic devices so as not to interfere with the plane's communication and navigation systems, lest the plane crash- then the willful disregard of those instructions means that the offender is TRYING to bring the plane down, and putting everybody else's life at risk. Either that or the 'turn off electronic devices' rule is just **** .  (Dec 29, 2010 | post #27)

Didn't like this article. He made it sound like the Eagles rolled over-giving no credit at all to the Vikings' inspired play. THIS Vikings team would have given ANY of those playoff teams a good fight. We've still got some talent (easy to forget) and had a good game plan to thwart Philly. I think we made them look bad, not they made us look good.....  (Dec 29, 2010 | post #3)

I say, if they are mentally incompetent enough not to realize the consequences of their actions (insanity) then they won't realize they are being put to death.  (Dec 28, 2010 | post #6)

Vikings shock Philadelphia Eagles, win 24-14

Webb looked pretty good, I'd be OK with him as our QB. Defensive scheme was great, Eagles looked poor against repeated blitzing. Allen brought his A game, good win.  (Dec 28, 2010 | post #1)

Vikings: Brett Favre inactive tonight; Joe Webb will make...

Wooo-Hooo!!! Did you see the BLITZING! Banged-up Vikings played well, but that secondary needs to practice catching the ball. The Rice touchdown has me confused...how could they overturn that? Of course the ball is moving, the defender was smacking the heck out of it. But it never touched the ground, never came free...guess we'll be getting another apology from the league. Good thing this one didn't cost us the game. Allen was a beast!  (Dec 28, 2010 | post #16)

Greenway got shafted- but success feeds on itself. If the Vikes were 9-5, I think he'd be in.  (Dec 28, 2010 | post #6)

Woman, 22, dies in 3rd tragic central Wis. crash for Minn...

Don't know the circumstances here...but did have an eye-opener on 94 north of Madison two years ago. Blizzard conditions, late at night, a semi was pulled over just past an off ramp. He had his blinkers on, and I was only going about 35 mph, but almost too late I realized his back end was still on the highway. In fact, it stuck out more than halfway into the right lane. I was barely able to maneuver into the middle (and snow-covered) lane and get past him. Would have been real trouble if another car had been beside me. Some people just don't seem to realize how dangerous the highway shoulder is- and others (like me) are guilty of assuming everyone else thinks like they do and thinks about the potential danger when they pull over.  (Dec 28, 2010 | post #1)

Duluth, Minn. / Missing man, 26, may be in the Southwest

If running out of money would prompt him to call home for help, then comfort propagates amnesia. Ergo, hardship is good for the brain- and rich people are dumber than average??? I always thought that smarter people had a better chance of getting rich. I guess this means my chances just went up!!  (Dec 24, 2010 | post #1)
