Some Kind of VooDoo

WOW. That was insane. I can promise you that I've never been that into a non-Packer game in my entire life. I was a mess. I was sweaty. I was screaming. I've never been that happy for a non-Packer team to win a game, ever. I've got issues. But those issues have been resolved. That demon has been exercised (at least until August when He decides he is going to show up at Packer training camp and wants to play for the Packers again).

When you really think about how that game played out, there could not have been a more perfect ending. He has possibly ended (doubtful) His career in Minnesota, the same way He ended it in Green Bay. With an ill-advised, back breaking interception, with a chance to go to the Super Bowl. That pass (along with: Philly, NYG and about 100 others) was a microcosm of His career, especially in the last 10 years, and especially in the playoffs. This is what He does. This is who He is.

I've always been a big believer in karma. Here is a karmic scoreboard.

GOOD: Saints fans/City of New Orleans/New Orleans residents/displaced Katrina victims. Congrats. Well deserved. If anyone deserved something good after 43 years of shit, and that hurricane, it was you.

GOOD: Drew Brees. I like him.

BAD: He Who Shall Not Be Named/Deanna/Chilly/The Minnesota Vikings Organization/every asshole He Who Shall Not Be Named-former Packer fan: I hate to say I told you so. But I fucking told you so. Good things come to good people. I'm not going to sit here and say that Chilly doesn't help old ladies cross the street or whatever. And I don't necessarily blame him for going out and getting Him. He is a lot better than Travarioueiause. Chilly got himself a nice contract extension and it nearly worked. BUT, Chilly absolutely sold the fuck out, forgot his values by letting Him run the show to placate His enormous ego, and probably lost respect for his team in the process. And Chilly ignored the fact that He has a long glorious history of doing exactly what He did yesterday. He saved the worst for last. He was a stud all year, and played His worst game when it mattered most. Did he play an overall horrendous game? It is hard to put all the blame on Him, and He did what he does in dragging His bad leg out onto the field after getting destroyed by the blitz. But He has the ability to destroy it all with one bad pass. And He did it again.

The Vikings as an organization fall into the same category as Chilly. You let Him run the show, and He burned you.

Deanna, I just don't like you at all.

He deserved every potentially dirty hit He got, and deserved to lose in the most soul crushing way possible. If you are an asshole to the people that loved you, the universe will punish you. You just cannot get away with doing what He did. Also, congrats on getting that "ankle injury" so you have an excuse to not go to training camp again.

To the former Packer fans who didn't root like hell for the Saints. You are not welcomed back. Your punishment is having to root for dry weather when He is sitting on His tractor. The worst kind of Karma is coming.

NEUTRAL: To true Viking fans.

I actually feel a bit sorry for you in that it has to be getting old to lose this way. At the same time, that is what you get for hitching your horse to Our old wagon. And kind of being pricks about it. How do you feel about that $90 investment in a He Who Shall Not Be Named Viking jersey now bitches?

The Saints are my adopted second team. And should be the rest of America's team too after finally killing the beast (maybe?)

Oh yeah baby, was I cackling like the wicked witch last night. Purple Judas keeps the streak going. The vikings fans that were halfway decent at the game in Green Bay, I warned them, he'll do to you what he did to us. And lo and behold...

A few posts back, I posted about my cousin following favre everywhere even though she's a packer season ticket holder? well, she went to new orleans...she got her tickets off craigslist...wired the guy $1100 and go no ticket. She did buy another one, but it was just fitting that she was at the giants game and now she was at this game.

I do not welcome the relations back to the clubhouse, they will be banned...

Now, I have to go order my saints sweatshirt...(hey, it's not bandwagon, I've had a fleur de lis tattoo for almost 20 years now)...

She WIRED some dude in Louisiana CASH? THAT is insanity. At least go off of StubHub or Ticketmaster or something semi reputable. That is just DUMB. Glad she got to see the carnage though. Karma.

I've been holding my tongue as a show of good faith towards Vikings fans I have to deal with on a daily basis because you're right, karma's a bitch and I'm not gonna jinx the Rodgers era by rubbing every Vikings fan's face into the giant pile of shit that Favre left on their rug

Ricky said...

I will and am rubbing their face in that pile of shit. Nobody seems to like my saints shirt I am wearing today or the e-mails I am blasting out to everyone. I may get fired but it's fucking worth it! Eat it Queens! Viking fans seem to not give a shit he cost them a shot at the Super Bowl with his classic fuck up. They are swinging by his sack hoping he comes back. Today is a GOOD day!!!!

I said it a million times when He was a Packer and I'll say it again - He is the most un-clutch all time great QB. Many Packer fans didn't like it when I said it back in the day, but now they seem to be agreeing with me.

Juicelaw said...

Vikings fans make it really hard to feel the slightest bit sorry for them. They have the perfect opportunity to blame everything on Him and move on. Yet they are too stupid to do it. But you appear to want to keep Him as your own, so feel free.

I guess these are things that happen when you have an entire fanbase of bandwagoners (I'm not talking about Twinkie). Most of them can just move on like nothing happened from one of the most soul crushing losses in NFL history (at least in the conversation). Of course, most of them didn't know they had a football team at all until every media outlet on earth crammed Him down everyone's throat.

Packer fans would have gone on murdering sprees.

Whether that makes us better or not is not for me to judge.

oh no she didn't, my cousin actually left this message on my facebook page because I posted the youtube video of the interception...keep in mind, I haven't said a word to her about it, rubbed her nose in it...nada...

"I didn't see Green Bay in the playoffs in New Orleans. Ha! Ha! Sucks to be you. The fact that they made it to the playoffs says a lot. I had a blast flying around and living the good life watching him. Now ill plan my next trip of fun!"

yep, that's the mindset of someone that doesn't know football but just loves brent and follows him blindly...

just ordered my saints t-shirt and hurricane mix...(vikings fans are mightily quiet around these parts today)...

Juicelaw said...

Does your cousin like roll around in dollar bills or something? How does one afford to a) follow an NFL team around the country; b) when you aren't even allegedly a fan of said team; c) have $1,100 stolen from you, and still buy tickets; and d) not even care when the team you followed lost????

Is your cousin named Deanna?

Perhaps she doesn't leave comments on blog message boards when she should be actually working.
