    Hey now...some of us are diehard Yankees fans...and have been since we were young...don't knock those of us that suffered through the hard times of the 80s and early 90s!

    Besides, Yankee fans are WAY SMARTER than Packer fans!!!

    I've been a Vike fan since the Joe Kapp days. But I can safely say I do like the Packers, mostly for the same reasons I started liking the Vikings.
    COLD WEATHER WARRIORS. Flame throwers on the field, no heated seat ala Bud Grant, Page, Eller & Larsen, Krause, Tark..........

    The Vikings are now dome pu$$ies, but they are still my team. I hope they get an outdoor stadium and decide to open it up in January when they play the likes of Indy, Tampa Bay or Atlanta.

    Anyway, from my 30+ years of obsevation, it seems they are a cursed team. The Drew Pearson push-off in the NFC championship game, the super bowl drubbings, the debacle at Az in '03, the Herschel trade......
    need I go on?

    I'm with you on this one for the most part. I hate the fact that the Vikings play in a dome. When they win it all it will be that much sweeter, but I hope it is in an outdoor home stadium. The NFL needs to have home field advantage given even up to the SB game like in MLB. Screw playing in a neutral dome field for the SB. Play at the field that has won home field advantage.

    I'll agree with you that the Metrodome has all the aesthetic glory of a giant Port-a-John. But I don't think there's such thing as a "curse." Somebody's gotta lose. It's just been us for quite a while. In fact, to call it a curse is dangerous. It is a view that might become popular among fans and create a self-fulfilling prophecy, as it did with the Red Sox until they broke the "curse," and, to a much lesser extent, the Cubs (Chicago fans understand that it's a freaking game).

    Vikings fan since day one! I figured out I was a big fan for sure when I was about 4 and on Thanksgiving I begged my Dad to take me and get me a Jersey even though all the stores were closed. He actually took me out and we found one!
