    I completely forgot about this...

    Did you know? The 1969 Vikings won the last NFL Championship in history. The NFL and AFL merged the year afterward, creating conference championships that fed into the Super Bowl.

    I haven't. I use it to confuse Packer fans when they try to get on me for losing 4 Super Bowls.

    Despite the presence of three future Hall of Famers (Eller, Page and Krause), Kapp was named MVP for the way he inspired a team-oriented concept throughout the year.

    In a legendary gesture, Kapp turned down the award and reiterated the team’s battle cry that season: “40 for 60” -- 40 players committed for 60 minutes of football. Players were so confident in the sum total of their talent that they often laughed at opponents when they celebrated touchdowns.
    Love it.

    Most people thought the Vikings were so dominant they would handily beat the Chiefs but it went the other way around.

    It was but the first of a string of disappointments suffered by Vikings fans where they seemed to have the superior team but found a way to lose.

    Now we enter the 41st season since that year.

    I think it's about time to break that tendency.

    How about it Vikings?

    I am really hoping the 2010 team is that team.One certain win would solidify that.

    Sounds great to me. A Viking Championship is really the only thing that is stopping me from dying a happy man when it's my turn to go.
