    Yes, we are all passionate football fans here and love the Vikings a lot.
    But don't let them ruin your daily life.


    Especially if you are getting bummed listening to the fricken Challenged Hillbilly Lover'd media.
    If that is bumming you out, mayBe you should take a break or seek some professional help.

    This may be harsh, but there are more important things than football.
    Well said Ultra!!! way to put things in perspective

    The fact is that we cant win every game and it would be very boring if we did. The losses also make the wins taste oh so much sweeter.

    Its what makes every sunday so fun

    Look I get upset that we beat orselves I yell Maybe kick something But for you to not be able to sleep Eat or interact. Thats a little much. I am a true fan have been for 30+ years. But I have a Life that quite honestly goes on. What do you do during the off season? Maybe some Pro Help is justified here. I understand Loving the Team but Sheeesh Take it for what it is Entertainment. Cheer when we win Be upset when we lose but for Gods sake Live your Life. Sorry dont mean to hurt anyones feelings but That is boarder Line Phsychotic.

    Ya I agree if you let a football team affect your daily life for more then a day negativily you may need to seek help

    I think about it the next day and probably the day after.. But it doesn't get me so depressed that I can't do daily activities

    Re: The Losing Side Affect

    I'm the same way but I think I've figured out how to deal with it.
    If we lose, I can't watch ESPN or NFL Net on Sun or Mon.
    After that, I just look forward to the next Sunday.
    The biggest thing that I have noticed is that my Mom knows not to call me on Sun or Mon after a loss...she just knows I will not be pleasant.
    After Monday I'm OK, but on Sunday or Monday after a loss I really don't want to talk about football.
    As bad as that is, I'm way worse with the Twins, and they play almost every day during the season...needless to say I am a wreck during much of the baseball season.

    Re: The Losing Side Affect

    I get pissed when they lose big games.
    I honestly don't how someone wouldn't.
    When the Vikings play I am making an investment of my time into the team.
    My time is valuable to me so it would be nice to occasionally be rewarded with some winning seasons.

    Think of how much time gets spent of your life around this team.
    3-4 hours every Sunday for 21 weeks for x amount of years.
    Damn right I get emotionally involved.
    This not including training camp for some people or time spent reading info online or listening to stuff on the radio about the team.


    Also think about how much money you have poured into this team over the years.
    Tickets, merchandise, ect.

    I wouldn't judge anyone on how they react to a game or call them less of a man that is stupid.
    I typically stay mad for a day.
    If its a real big game where they choke, 1998, 41-0, cardinals last play of the fricking game bs, last year against redskins.
    I will stay mad for about a week.
    Then I will cringe every time it gets mentioned lol.
    Brad Childress is 1-6 in games played Dec. 17 or later.

    I do get upst, then I move on.

    Way too much going on in my life to let the team drag me down from my family, work and coaching youth sports.

    And I seriously doubt you guys walk around all day mad.
    You may get mad when you think of it, but it's not like it is ruining your entire day.

    BTW, this is techinically a winning season.
    May as well be happy for something.
