Heh- I was going to post his over in the thread about Favre's dome record. But that got locked before I pushed the 'post' button.
Samkon35-- I hold no animosity toward you. This is only a football season and you've helped make it memorable (for me anyway). Please don't take this the wrong way.
Somehow I feel this just had to be said...
Some how the more Samkon rants about how we will lose, the calmer I get. Here are the reason's why:
First, Favre not coming
Even in retirement, Brett Favre finds one last way to beat the Vikings!! ahhahahhahahaa lol. Im sorry I couldnt resist.
Then we hear more weak rumors that Favre will join after all so he tries to make us hope for something we're not going to get
If Favre has anything left at his level and if the Vikings are as good as they are in madden. They will win the superbowl. The vikes have supreme talant at every position except saftey. The only piece missing is Favre and I guarantee he can make superstars out of bearian and Harvin with 97 speed for both of them.
failed to make us feel bad-- it actually came true
Then he tries to roll with it
For the record I wanted Favre on the vikes all along. No Flippy Flopping here lol.
Im so happy I get to watch my favorite player for one more year on a stack team. Superbowl hwere we come!!! GO VIKINGS and Packers lol. Wow im gonna have a football hard on during the vikes pack game. I wont even care who wins, that will be such great tv and football!!!
He even started the game day thread
for the Vikes season opener!
And of course the 49er game winner thrilled him:
OMG pandamonium. That was a 30 yard lazer 5 feet off the ground the whole way, none of the qbs in the league could have made that throw except Favre. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy he came back. what a way to win the fans of MINNNYYYY!!!!!!!!!!! No more blackouts for u guys I guarantee it.
Then a theme of bad predictions begins to arise as he faces the reality of the Favre led Vikes actually playing his squad:
Over the past few years this game has always been very close and it will be very close this year. If you are looking for a big blowout win either way then dont watch cause I GUARANTEE that will not happen.
He did try to start a game day thread
for the first vikes-packers game, but failed.
Bitter about the first loss to the Vikings, he reacts accordingly (with more bad predictions):
Favre gets hurt by throwing a block downfield, Rams in the upset 21-17
Ravens 48 Vikings-14 (Two Favre td passes)
I cant freaking wait to watch this. I am hoping for a Ravens Victory and a Packers Win to get the division close again!
but reality sets in:
im actually really impressed. The Vikes will prolly win the division unless they have an injury or collapse. I still think my pack can get a wildcard berth though!!!
And finally meeting 2 between the Vikes and Packers:
well ill tty guys later im gonna go cry
Prior to week 8, Samkon stood alone atop the Pick4 contest
but in week 8:Picks:
NEW ORLEANS -10
GREEN BAY -3
and week 9:Picks:
Green Bay -10
NEW ENGLAND -11
garnered him only 3 out of 8 as he put his confidence in GB only to lose to the Vikings and TB in back-to-back weeks
Then more bad predictions:here:
New Orleans -14
4-0 this week write it down.
Write it down? We wrote 1-3 down.But the Packers rebound and so do his spirits:
But the bad predictions continue:
The Packers just DESTROYED the surging NFC East leading Cowboys!!!!
Bureleson has 150 yards 2 tds and Hutch gives up 5 sacks
And still his hopes rise:
This just in, Right now the Packers are a PLAYOFF TEAM!!!! Ummmm revenge will be sweet.
But even with high hopes, he forgot to pick 4 until Monday night so with only one game to choose he tried
Minny -7 1-0 this week write it down. I wont try to be a jerkoff and act like I picked all the right games, but give me this one because this one is fair and square
You can't make this stuff up. He went from top of the Pick4 in week 8 to 3rd from the bottom by the end.Wildcard week of course was not kind to him with more bold (wrong) predictions:
NEW ENGLAND -3.5
Green Bay +2 Over
4-0 this week gentleman. The king has returned.
Hey king... Try 1-5... fail on so many different levels.
But still he persists:
Cowboys 51, Vikes 3
New Orleans will roll.
And thus the spiral into the abyss of petty resentment.
When I read gems of caution from Samkon about the upcoming game... it actually gives me a strange sense of calm-- that all is right with the world.
