    My God, is the press ever
    gonna drop the "Love Boat" thing? And to top it off they bring back the Whizzanator, squirting water bottles, etc, ect, ect.
    Let's just drop it and move on.

    A somewhat entertaining play of Tice vs Childress and the fact that the Vikings can only play football now instead of supplying OT to the civil servants.

    This article just took the old stories, reiterated them and summarized the new Vikings with a sentence:

    The only thing these Vanilla Vikings are any good for is playing football. Thanks, Brad Childress.
    David Brown is thanking Childress, not hating on him.

    This is actually a good article.
    It is satire people (I think... ).
    The author is pointing out that we have replaced scandals with wins.

    Good article. The Vikings are moving in the right direction. The "Love boat" & OSmith stuff was great! It helped our new owner get some much needed control of the players.

    Of course it's satirical. It's hard for me to imagine anyone seeing it otherwise.

    I don't know if this got any press down there, but Mr. Wizzinator, Onterrio Smith came up to try out for my home team, Winnipeg Blue Bombers. I was looking forward to seeing what he could do up here, but he was injured in the first pre-season game and couldn't play in the other ones and had to be cut. He also came in way overweight which didn't help. He worked a lot of it off but the injury sealed his fate.

    Re: These Vikings looking very vanilla

    Thought it was funny, but a bit wordy.


    Would have rather just read something like this....

    "The Vikings of 2006 are hear to play football."

    It would have saved me a lot of reading.

    I think that I heard Childress (some coach said it in the last 2 weeks) say satire was the lowest form of humor.
    I think he is right.
