Can anybody explain this?
Monday I was on my way to an exercise planning conference at Minot AFB, ND and had a short layover at MSP Airport. Being that it was the day that would end in our thrashing by the Packers I came appropriately clad in my Peterson jersey. I was feelin' it so I thought I'd pop into the Minnesota Sports Store to pick something up for myself and get the wife a Jared Allen jersey. To my f%^&&% horror I saw at least a third of the store bedecked with Packers crap.
I understand the idea of making money, but this is freakin' bull ^&%&! I live near Wash DC and I don't ever remember seeing any other NFC East teams' stuff in the Redskins' Locker, never saw anything other than Cowboys crap in their stores, same thing in KC, or Chicago (and their respective airports). WTF?????? Is this indicative of the mindset of the business elite in MN? When I expressed my disbelief (and total disgust) with the snow pig that worked there she said it was great because she was a Packers fan. I was the only one of 4 people in the store looking at Vikings stuff. The other three wankers were pawing through GBP crap. Is this normal up there?? I don't remember the Vikings Locker Room store in the MoA having anything like this when I was there in '03. This to me would be like the Russians selling German uniforms in Moscow in 1941.
Sorry about the small pic BTW.
