    Best damn sports columnist out there.

    He wrote a pretty interesting article in The Atlantic a few months back about how we're all going to be killed by a giant asteroid. Worth a gander.

    "When Minnesota punted to the Colts with 1:20 remaining, Spenser, my 13-year-old, immediately said, "They're doomed."
    Sounds like Spenser been a Vikings fan for a few seasons

    Stats of the Week No. 3: Stretching back to last season, Minnesota, picked by many touts to reach the Super Bowl, has lost four straight games.

    Worst Crowd Reaction: Reader Idan Avisar of Ramat HaSharon, Israel, notes, "As Minnesota was lining up in the third quarter to kick its fifth field goal, the fans in the Metrodome were booing their team for not going for the touchdown. You're ahead of the Colts 12-0, it's about to be 15-0 -- what are you booing for? I knew the football gods would punish Vikings fans for such poor manners." And ye, verily, it came to pass.
