Super Bowl Sunday

No time to post pictures this week. Sorry, Vikings fans.

This Sunday is SUPER BOWL Sunday! One of my favorite days of the year. I hope it is a close game and I pick the Pittsburgh Steelers to win it all. If the Arizona Cardinals win, I will cry, because the Vikings are a better team than they are and that means the Vikings could have one – is that acceptable logic? It is for me.

Check back next Wednesday for my Super Bowl thoughts and keep an eye on the commercials, I love to talk about the Super Bowl ads!

Vikings could have made the Super Bowl

Well, I was only 50% correct on my NFL playoff picks and I am still stunned that the Arizona Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl. {STUNNED} That could be the Minnesota Vikings! The Vikings pummeled the Cardinals in week 14 (score Vikings 35 Cardinals 14) – the fact that the Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl just proves how weird this NFL post season has been and how (in the words of Paul Allen) “wide open” the NFL Playoffs were – meaning it was anyones for the taking….too bad the Vikings weren’t more prepared to take!

Any one out there have any BIG plans for the Super Bowl?? I don’t have any this year. My friend who usually throws a party is not going to this year (darn kids get in the way of her partying). I think I will just chill on my sofa and dream of the Vikings facing off against the Steelers.

Check back next Wednesday for personal Vikings pictures (I am finally starting a photobucket account)

Vikings Vixen Surprised by Playoff Teams

OK, I wasn’t going to admit this, but I picked losing teams for the Super Bowl! Long ago before any playoff games were played, I put my money on the Tennessee Titans vs. New York Giants facing off on February 1st in Tampa – WRONG!

Both Tennessee and New York lost their *home* playoff games last weekend – insane. More playoff action this Sunday…

AFC: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers (I pick the Steelers)

NFC: Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals (I pick the Eagles)

Who would have thought that two teams with less than 10 regular season wins (Philly and AZ) would be duking it out to go to the Super Bowl? Weird NFL post-season. I keep thinking that could be us, that could be the Vikings hosting the NFC game…if we could have just got past those pesky Eagles.

Super Bowl Bound

Hey, just because the Vikings are out of the NFL Playoffs, doesn’t mean us Vikings fans can’t still follow along. There are great playoff games to watch this weekend and be sure to CHECK BACK next WEDNESDAY as I make my Super Bowl predictions!

Vikings Season Ends, What should we look forward to?

Vikings Vixen missed a few weeks – yes, I know. I took a "holiday hiatus" and then thought about never coming back, but here I am. Yes, I am drawn to this illustrious pink blog about my beloved Minnesota Vikings. Just when I think I am never going to waste my time blogging about them again, I get sucked back in. I just can’t give it up. The Vikings are an addiction. It’s the emotional high and the emotional lows that make them a tough habit to kick.

You’d be living under a rock if you didn’t know the Vikings finished the regular season with a win over the New York Giants at home and secured a first round *home* playoff game. A game that they had trouble selling out – apparently, Vikings fans are feeling more hate than love towards the purple.

The Philadelphia Eagles showed up at the Metrodome and beat us 26-14. In fact, it appeared to this Vikings fan, that the NFL Minnesota Vikings didn’t even try in the fourth quarter – it was embarrassing to wear purple (or pink), not because of the loss, but because we didn’t even give it an ounce of effort. It’s no wonder the fans didn’t want to pay $$$ to watch that! Fans want to see a team that is pouring its heart and soul into every second and that is not what happened on January 4th, 2009 at the Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome. I am truly disappointed in the players and even more in the coaching staff. It is a coach’s responsibility to motivate the players to give it their all even if it looks like the chips are stacked against them.
