    There is nothing more satisfying than opening an old wound and pouring salt into it.

    I would say the loss to the Cowboys on the "Hail Mary" push off pass was even a greater loss. I'm rereading the book "A tradition of Purple" and throughout the book it says that that was the greatest loss the Vikings ever suffered. Bud Grant, who never seemed to get upset at anything, was visibly shaken by that loss as we all the management.

    Seriously...I hate reliving this and other big losses. I live for the day when we can look back on a Super Bowl victory, which will wipe out all of the losses...for me anyway.

    Until that time, I will honor the Viking greats of the past, but I won't live there. I'm looking to the future when we will have that victory.

    yeah, thanks to the wrong pass interference call by the refs.

    Fatalism runs deep among Vikings fans conditioned for failure regardless of success.

    A generation too young to bear scars from the team's 0-for-4 Super Bowl anguish of the 1970s carries emotional baggage from the Vikings' 30-27 overtime loss to the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC championship game Jan. 17, 1999....

    Gary Anderson's missed field goal, a 38-yarder that would have given the Vikings a 10-point lead with 2:07 remaining, is the enduring failure of their 1999 NFC championship game loss to Atlanta. However, there were other missed opportunities....
