    ...Hey, as an old Vikings fan, I'd have loved it if head linesman Jerry Bergman and field judge Armen Terzian had correctly called offensive pass interference against Cowboys receiver Drew Pearson on the infamous Hail Mary play in the '75 playoff game between the Vikings and Cowboys. But in all honesty, I've probably gotten more pleasure out of ranting about that play the past 32 years than I ever would have had the Vikings actually won the game and gone on to the Super Bowl (which, naturally, they would have lost)...

    Drew Pearson pushed off this morning when he stopped at Starbucks for a mocha grande latte.

    at least one of the officials caught a whiskey bottle upside the head.
    a super bowl wouldve been better, but thats a nice consolation prize, i guess.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.
