Favre has gone from a living legend to a complete joke in only two years. Not saying his presence won't help the Vikings this year, but his demeanor and attitude after life in Green Bay has been horribly selfish. Much unlike the persona he previously created for himself as THE Packer.
I'd love to see the Vikings win a Super Bowl, here's hoping it can finally happen.
Perhaps I should explain...
I grew up near Philly so have always been somewhat of an Eagles fan.
But it was Fran Tarkenton who first drew me as a kid into football. I kinda feel like I owe my love of the game to watching him and those 1970's Viking games.
As for the Bucs... When I was teaching The Bucs and Vikes were in the same division. In those days I took incredible heat for being a Vikings fan. A couple of those guys made it so rough that I just couldn't bring myself to root for them.
The only time I go to see them at RayJay is on the rare times the Vikes are in town.
Unfortunately, in 98 I was there for the only damn loss the team had that season (until the conf championship)
Last year I just wanted to be able to say I saw All Day run in person.
In baseball I'm a Rays fan, but still love the Phils, so last year's World Series was a dream come true.
In Hockey it's the same, Lightning and Flyers.
In Basketball it's the 76ers. Never got into the Orlando Magic although I've been to a couple of games.
That's my sports story....
