If u read my signature at the bottom u will see that I am right there with ya brother. I turned 56 this past October, I have been a die hard Vikes fan since I was old enough to know what football was. I have seen alot , most of actually, things on my bucket list happen. This is one that I have just Pine for for years!! I thought of the tattoo design that I was gonna get on my arm from shoulder down to my wrist showing my allegiance to the Vikes and my absolute joy that I felt if we would ever win a SB.
I inherited a case if artery disease from my mom's side and have had 2 stupid heart attacks, my 1st one at 26 and my 2nd one at 41. Fortunately I am still doing well and am in pretty good shape, but I know that it can happen again at any time and tomorrow isn't promised. I feel like I am living on borrowed time and really want to know what it's like to be a fan if the Super Bowl champions. The years we came so close 98, 08, a few yrs ago the Miracle season, and then all those damn SB losses as a kid all still cause me pain and agony when I think about them or see them referenced. I really thought a few yrs ago we finally had the team and got a few missing pieces to finally get there. And I really thought Zimmer could bring a coaching style to help get there.
So honestly I am just about ready to tap out, realize I will be dead before I see it and just accept it and quit wishing for it and expecting that it will happen. Just start trying to not to have any expectations and enjoy the wins and accept the stupid losses.
It's like fate has just made up its mind that the Vikings are not gonna be Super Bowl champs .. EVER.
Now I say all this because I'm pissed off at the outcome today and of the whole season in general. I will be back at it next year dreaming that we will hoist the trophy at the end of the season.
But right now I am with you buddy and just give up.
I am definitely not excited about spending Christmas day witnessing what I expect to happen against that team that I absolutely hate and their jerk crybaby fat headed coach Payton.
Sorry about the negativity but I can't find any other emotion about the Vikings at the moment.
