Today, the season comes to a disappointing close for the Norsemen of Minnesota. We did not meet the goals we set at the beginning of the year, and we finished on a rather sour note. However, I do not dispair this day, for good things come to those that wait.
The honeymoon with Brad Childress is over, and next year the Vikings roster will be filled with those who excel in his system. Next year we shall be stronger, faster, and wiser in all the right places. We shall cut the deadweight that is Troy Williamson and Fred Smoot, and cast them into the pits of hell, or Oakland depending on salary cap space. Our recent draft class, already successful with the play of Tavaris Jackson and Cedric Griffin, shall no longer be rookies but instead will enjoy the fruits of a successful offseason training program. We shall get back that which was taken from us, the man they call Greenway, who shall bring with him a force so mighty that even the strongest of foes shall wither and die. We shall bid farewell to that which is Favre, and watch as Green Bay flounders under the guidance of Aaron "Dude Where's The Bench" Rodgers. We shall bear witness as the Bears are torn apart in free agency as a result of their own greed. We shall laugh as Detroit retains the services of Millen, and again makes a mockery of the sport of football. We shall be infused with new blood that shall reinvigorate us. Our once proud offense will stand tall once more, as we select Dwayne Jarrett or Jeff Samardja on the eve of the 2007 NFL Draft.
Fear not my Viking brethren. The day may be sad, but our cause is righteous and we shall prevail. We shall never go quietly into the good night, for we shall once again rise up and cast off the shackles of ineptitude. Our desire is great, our cap space vast, and our owner's checkbook free flowing. Good things do indeed come to those that wait, and our time draws ever closer. To the rest of the world, we say unto you: Beware that which now lies dormant in the Metrodome. The fury of the Norsemen shall once again envelop this land, and rain upon this world the purple wrath of righteousness. Wait until September. Wait until the Vikings reload. Oh yes my friends... wait in fear and anguish...
Waith til next year.
