    Are the Vikings Cursed?

    I don't know if anyone uses Wikipedia it's an OPEN SOURCE encyclopedia. In fact you can edit ANY entry in the encyclopedia kinda cool. Somebody added this entry under the Minnesota Vikings Section. Thought I would share.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Vikings

    Curses
    The Vikings, even though they are a very successful franchise, are faced with championship futility, much like the Chicago Cubs, the Toronto Maple Leafs and many other successful franchises in other sports. Many attribute their futilities to "curses", such as the Cubs' Billy Goat curse. The Vikings have the more esoteric rune stone curse, named for the Kensington Runestone, claimed to be Viking in origin, which was found near Alexandria, Minnesota. Legend has it that the runestone predicts the fate of the Minnesota Vikings in the future.

    22 Norwegians on
    discovery voyage from
    Vinland over (the) west we
    had camp by 2 skerries one
    days journey north from this stone
    we were and fishe(ed) one day after
    we came home found 10 men red
    with blood and dead.
    The 22 Norwegians in this reference are a reference to the 22 players that play on a starting offense and defense on an NFL football team. The 10 dead are usually a reference to a massive group of injuries or an offense or defense that plays sub par.

    They also have the 0 for 4 Curse. They have played in four Super bowls, but have won none.


    :evil: Happy Halloween :twisted:

    Thanks Lotzapurple119 for the new sig.

    Re: Are the Vikings Cursed?

    Nah, dont really believe in those kind of curses esp sports curses. The media is to blame for causing all kind of controversey over sport curses.

    You want a curse, come down to hawaii, go to the big island and take pele's rocks. Youll be in for a real bad curse.

    No. The Vikings aren't cursed. They just need to pull their head out of their A-Ses, and PLAY SOME FOOTBALL! Danute has no one he can trust as he did with Moss (another great player who needed to check his ego at the locker room door and play some football already). I think they've had a 'Wake up" call now and have snapped out of their slump. Look out Panthers!

    60's here in Montana! But I'll still take Hawaii!

    As the Leafs are my favourite hockey team I think I maybe cursed
