felong Minnesota Vikings apologist. Became a member of Red Sox & Bruins Nation in 2000. Team Miami Heat since 2003. Proud & loyal son of Iowa State University; first as a young Cyclone, then as a student and now as an alumni. Just jumped on board with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. & Roush Fenway Racing, even though I don't follow NASCAR much. I'm a huge nerd for statistics, and I love college basketball above all else. When I'm not immersed in sports, I'm golfing... Wait...

Zygi Won't Mess This Up... Will He?

I have recently become a huge fan of Shawn Zobel's NFL Draft website, Draft Headquarters.  He's a guy my age (about 21) who has been known to publish a lengthy draft report every year, as well as...

Christian Ponder and This Unfamiliar Feeling

Not since the 2009 NFC Championship game (puke) have my eyes been so glued to the television for a Vikings game as they were during the 4th quarter this past Sunday night. It really is incredible...

Sports Clichés That Annoy The Hell Out Of Me

You can't out-physical somebody.  Physical is not a verb. There is no such word as athleticism. Why say toughness when you can say strength? You groom dogs, not quarterbacks. Any coach can command...

Fantasy Football Team Names

This season, I named my fantasy football team "Stringer Squad" in honor of our fallen beloved Korey Stringer.  It's been ten summers since his tragic passing, and not a single mention of "Vikings...

I regret posting what I just posted as a comment on someone else's FanPost, because I don't think I did the topic at hand enough justice. There is more to be said, and I feel like I should do it...
