The perfect storm
It is looking like an easy path to a SuperBowl for Barney and co.
Almost like destiny.
But something comes to mind, especially in light of previous attempts by this particular franchise...Call it karma, joss, kismet...you choose the description.
I love the movie, "Patton".
Waiver on the doggie thing.
"For over a thousand years Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of triumph, a tumultuous parade. In the procession came trumpeteers, musicians and strange animals from conquered territories, together with carts laden with treasure and captured armaments. The conquerors rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. Sometimes his children robed in white stood with him in the chariot or rode the trace horses. A slave stood behind the conqueror holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a warning: that all glory is fleeting."
- Gen. George C. Patton

Re: The perfect storm
Tell me about it, as Viking fans, we always are leery of such things.
We have a difficult time dealing with our own success because we are looking for the fall. JMHO!
It is no cake walk from here.
Did you see what Indy did to the Pats?
The Saints did to Phins a few weeks back.
Barney is playing pretty good, the rest of the team needs to step up the consistency from week to week and from half to half.
