Ladies and Gentlemen, We Have Extra Football

It wasn't necessarily pretty, and it wasn't always fun to watch. . .but by God. . .

THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS ARE THE 2008 NFC NORTH DIVISION CHAMPIONS!!

And they earned it by going out and doing what they needed to do.  They didn't "back in," and they didn't wait for Chicago to lose (even though it was pretty nice that they did). . .nope, they won their game, and they got into the post-season.

Celebrate everything right here, and keep an eye on the Eagles and the Cowboys if you can.  Thanks to Chicago's loss to the Texans and Tampa's inexplicable loss to Oakland, our playoff opponent for next weekend is going to be the winner of the game that's going on in Philadelphia right now.
