Minnesota Enjoys Wisconsin's Sloppy Seconds

Legendary Vikings coach Bud Grant was born in....Superior, WI. Where was Curly Lambeau from? Not Minnesota.

Who was the best Twins pitcher of the 90s? Eau Claire native Brad Radke

Current Vikings coaching staff: Major Dad Childress, Darrell Bevell, Jim Hueber, and Brian Murphy - all Badger retreads.

The Gophers Co-D Coordinator? Kevin Cosgrove. I can hear Nebraska fans laughing all the way from Omaha.

Playoff wins for Darrin Sharper, Robert Ferguson and Ryan Longwell wearing purple? Zero.

How did Erasmus James work out? Paul Grant (Yeah, I went there)? Oh, and did you enjoy the Latrell Sprewell experiment?

Yeah Minny fans, you gave us Molitor, and we appreciate it. Then he went back home to close out his career. Thanks for lending him to us for 14 years of his prime.

Now it appears you're getting Benidict Brett at the tender age of 40. Good luck with that.

As if you didn't already know, Minnesota Sucks! At least you have the Spam museum.

That is well written.

MN is also dumb, they are 1 of 2 BCS schools to lose football scholarships b/c they can't make the grades. Good way to open a new stadium.

That’s the biggest dagger of all in this whole shitshow. That seething hatred I have of Brett Favre is part of who I am. It’s ingrained in my very being. When I die, my body will turn into nothing but solid black ash. I won’t go to Heaven. I won’t go to Hell. I’ll simply stop existing. Not a trace of me will be left, on this plane or any other. But, even then, I assure you I’ll still find a way to fucking hate Brett Favre.

Here's to BJ Raji splitting the double-team and smokin Brett-any and Pederson on a hand-off, taking them both to the Lambeau Turf and breaking bones Dr. James Andrews can't even figure out.

And Ted then coming over the Lambeau P.A. to announce free Spotted Cow at the "Draft Picks" stand.

3 out of 5 teams were Big Ten...not surprisingly OSU was one of them.

Perhaps another to add to the list...

Vikings Could Sign Mark Tauscher --
Wed May 6, 2009 --from

The Pioneer Press reports not only is QB Brett Favre likely to sign with the Vikings, assuming his right arm is healthy, but it wouldn't be surprising if his former Packers OT Mark Tauscher also comes to Minnesota. Tauscher, 31, is a 6-foot-3, 315-pound Green Bay free-agent right tackle who is coming off knee surgery. If he is healthy, he could split time with rookie OT Phil Loadholt.

He might be healthy enough to play a month into the season, but how do you justify a roster spot in that case? If he was a superstar in the league, maybe; but he just isn't.

Can we please stop referring to Childress as Major Dad and use his real name... Mr. Noodle

Brad I like it. But Badger retreads? I am pretty sure a gig in the NFL is considered a promotion.

Just say'n.

Fuck the Vikes, though.
