    Superbowl IV: Vikings Mascot In Hot Air Balloon Fiasco - Video

    I saw this on TV the other day and it made me laugh so I thought I'd share it with you all. The main thing that struck me about it was how amateurish it all looks compared with the whole Superbowl entertainment "experience" now. I mean when you go to the big game these days you can expect to see Prince, Bruce Springsteen or the Rolling Stones, not get up close and personal with a great big hot air balloon! BTW sorry if it opens up any wounds for long time Vikes out there remembering the actual game.

    Obviously that wouldn't happen now.
    All the hot air we have here on PPO, we just lend them some and problem solved.... ;D

    The Cardinals, it's a mixture between Crap and Cards = Crads, it's maybe a British thing.

    In my opinion the curse started loooong ago when we backed out of the original AFL commitment and made a shady back room deal with Halas and his cronies to come to the NFL.

    "There are 3 things that sell in America:
    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."
