Vikings Giants Game HUGE

So much for resting our star Vikings players at the end of the season. I remember thinking about 7 weeks ago that this Vikings Giants game wasn’t going to mean much… so I didn’t want to buy tickets for it, but NOW – I want to go so badly! You can still get Minnesota Vikings Tickets, but I can't afford them now. UGH!

The Vikings absolutely need to win to get a bye in the first round, but that’s not all – we have to scoreboard watch (which I hate!) because the Philadelphia Eagles have to lose (please Cowboys win). It is going to be an interesting football weekend and I can't wait!

I love knowing all the players at the table, but it’s killing me that we don’t know what order they sit in. I can’t believe it is coming down to the last regular season games to figure it all out. I guess that’s why I love NFL football so much – the suspense and all of the NFC Playoff Scenarios running through my head!

For example:

Jan 9-10
Arizona vs. Philadelphia (winner Philly)
Green Bay vs. Dallas (winner Pack)

Jan 16-17
Packers at New Orleans (winner Packers)
Philadelphia at Minnesota (winner Minnesota)

Jan 24 NFC Championship
Packers at Vikings in the “Ultimate Brett Favre Showdown”

Time will tell how close my predictions really are!

College Bowl Game Wanderlust for a Depressed Vikings Fan

After the depressing Vikings Bears game last night, I am feeling like I need to make big New Years plans to cheer myself up. I would love to fly to the Gophers Insight Bowl game in Arizona on December 31st – it’s going to be a fun Midwestern rival game and I love to support my hometown Gopher football team.

But, I wouldn’t mind being at the Gator Bowl either this year. #1 It’s in Jackonsville, Florida – gotta be warmer than here. #2 It’s legendary Bobby Bowdens last game. He has coached 34 seasons for the Florida Seminoles and it will be sad to see him go. He is definitely a college football coaching legend and I have tons of respect for him…can’t say that about Brad Childress, that’s for sure. There are still some Florida Seminoles Tickets left for the game, I wonder what a plane ticket to Jacksonville would cost me?

Gotta love college bowl games!

Minnesota Vikings play Chicago Bears TONIGHT!!

The Minnesota Vikings are taking on the Chicago Bears Tonight at Soldier Field Stadium... What is riding on tonight's game? LOTS.

#1) Minnesota Vikings Pride... My boys are good, I know it, You know it... but the rest of the NFL needs to know it. The Minnesota Vikings have had a great season, no one would deny it. However, Minnesota Vikings Haters are saying that a lot of the Vikings Wins have been handed to them and we have not deserved them. The Minnesota Vikings roster needs to use tonight to prove that we have earned the ranking we have.

#2) This is Rivalry Game.... The Minnesota Vikings - Chicago Bears Rivalry is longstanding and deep seated. Although, it is nothing in comparison to the the Vikings-Packers rivalry the Bears-Vikings Game is always a Midwest Favorite. With both cities being so close there is always a larger presence from both the Minnesota Vikings Fan base and the Chicago Bears Fan Base

#3) If the Minnesota Vikings win tonight and next week and the New Orleans Saints lose next week than the MN Vikings will have the home field advantage for the play-offs which would be HUGE. The Vikings play better at home, they are more relaxed and subsequently play their game much better. So Vikings Fans start praying. Kick-Off is at 7:30!

Upcoming Minnesota Vikings Games

The Minnesota Vikings will not be taking a break for the Holidays... with just 3 games left in the Regular 2009 NFL Season, it is crunch time and the Minnesota Vikings roster is getting ready to go all the way.

First up is a Vikings-Panthers match up on Sunday December 20th. The Minnesota Vikings will play the Carolina Panthers on the road. Vikings fans will be able to catch the game which kicks off at 7:20 p.m. on NBC or Sirius Radio.

Next week (NFL week 16) The Minnesota Vikings have a huge game against the Chicago Bears in Chicago. While it isn't the Vikings-Packers rivalry, the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears do have compete for many of the same Midwest Football Fans. With the close proximity of Chicago to the Twin Cities, this game is going to be crazy. Typically the Vikings Football Game closest to New Years is always an exciting one, the fans are louder, the players are fresh from a break and everyone expects a huge Minnesota Vikings win... I hope this game will live up to the expectations!

And then finally on January 3rd, Week 17, the Minnesota Vikings will take on the New York Giants at home in the HHH Metrodome on Mall of America Field. Vikings Tickets for the Vikings-Giants game have been selling like crazy and if the Vikings win both of their road games (totally possible), my guess is the game will be a total sell out.

Vikings Bengals Game Review

The Minnesota Vikings took on the Cincinnati Bengals last Sunday and had a blow out win. Pre-Game predictions made it seem that the Bengals would hold on against the Minnesota Vikings much closer than they did. The Minnesota Vikings walked away with a 33-10 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

After a scoreless first quarter, the MN Vikings started handing it to the Cincinnati Bengals. At the half, the score was 16-7 Vikings. The Cincinnati Bengals never came back. The Bengals did not score again until the 4th quarter but after 2 more Vikings Touchdowns it wasn't enough.

Below is a video of game highlights, enjoy Vikings Fans!

Week 14 Preview: Vikings vs. Bengals

All I have to say is that my Minnesota Vikings better be ready. The Cincinnati Bengals are a good team. currently they lead their division and with a 8-3 record, they are not that far behind where we are. While I am a firm believer in Vikings Confidence and I hate to send negative Vikings Vibes out into the universe, I must confess that I am a little worried that this could be a repeat of last week.

The Bengals are known to have an awesome pass defense, lets just hope that we have our running issues figured out, with the division title no longer "in the bag" the MN Vikings have no room for error! Working to our advantage, however, is fear... Coach Brad Childress surely chewed the Vikings Roster out in length after last weeks game, lets just hope the fear of not winning again will help them play a little harder this week.

The Minnesota Vikings will take on the Cincinnati Bengals at the HHH Metrodome, this Sunday at 12:00. There are still lots of Vikings Tickets left for this game, head out and help cheer the Vikings on to Victory!

Minnesota Vikings lose to the Arizona Cardinals and drop record to 10-2

The Minnesota Vikings took on the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday at the University of Pheonix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona... The Cardinals came ready to play, I really wish I could say the same for the Vikings roster. As much as I love my boys, I'm going to have to be a little critical...

First of all, Vikings Offensive Line... did they even go to Arizona? The Vikings O-line has been so strong all season, where was that vs. the Cardinals?

Second of all, Brett Farve is old in football years, that means lets not try and throw the ball every time, why not try running it every now and again?

Finally, Vikings Special Teams... Really Guys?! I know that when we are winning we don't notice how much they suck, but come on! Because a picture is worth 1,000 words, and it makes me too sad to type anymore, here is a video of the Week 13 Vikings-Cardinals Highlights... (enjoy?)

NHL Week 13 Preview: Vikings Cardinals

NHL Week 13 Preview:

This week the Minnesota Vikings take on the Arizona Cardinals. The Vikings have gone 10-1 so far compared to the Arizona Cardinal's 7-4. Meaning that at face value the Vikings should be able to beat the Cardinals and bump their record up to 11-1. That being said, Arizona Football fans are known to be some of the best in the country and the Cardinals will definitely have a strong home field advantage over the Vikings.

Help the Vikings out this weekend and think about taking a quick trip to Arizona, avoid the weekend snow and cheer the Vikings on to victory. There are still Vikings Cardinals Tickets left, think about enjoying some sunshine and taking in the Vikings game.

Lots to be Thankful for after Vikings Bears Game

The Minnesota Vikings took on the Chicago Bears over Thanksgiving weekend and added yet another win to the already impressive record they have created this season.

The Vikes played the Bears at the HHH Metrodome last Sunday, easily beating their rivals 36-10. Vikings fans were nervous after the first quarter went scoreless but 3 touchdowns in the second quarter that left the Minnesota Vikings up 24-7 at the half. Despite a late semi-surge by the Chicago Bears in the second half, the MN Vikings held on only letting "da Bears" score a single touchdown.
