What I Learned Today from Football

A heartfelt victory for the Minnesota Vikings today (I told you I was a Minnesota girl at heart)!

Not only was it a heartfelt victory, but they taught me a valuable lesson: JUST BECAUSE they bet against you DOESN'T MEAN they are right! And here's what I mean....
Our free pick prediction for this game is the Cowboys +3. Dallas is 4-1 against the spread in its last five games and 4-2 straight up in its last six games on the road. Favre is also 0-3 against the Cowboys in the postseason and we have a gut feeling that ol’ No. 4 will cost his team big on Sunday.
For the past week, every time I watched ESPN, yet another person was "betting against" the Vikings. I believe I heard one person say the Vikings would win, but even at that - just a 3 point victory. 

What I witnessed today was all heart from the Vikings! From the beginning of the game up until the last touchdown, there was wild passion, fire and they showed up! We all know they knew they were not the favorites to win. And yet, they came out - strong as ever - for a fantastic victory! 

I''ll be at the Superbowl in Miami. I would love the Vikings to be there. But if not, these are the games I'll remember about them and the season! And I'll remember for my own life....JUST BECAUSE they bet against you DOESN'T MEAN they are right!

  1. I <3 the Vikings, I now <3 you! Today Brett and Sidney Rice and the rest of the team put their hearts on the line... and brought it home. I hope they make it to the Superbowl too. It would be one I'd watch for the game instead of for the commercials.
