A Peek Behind the Steel Curtain

I'll occasionally visit a Vikings opponents' SBNation page to get a feel for a fan base's fanaticism.  I've been impressed by some and bored by others.  I just sneeked a peek Behind the Steel Curtain (the SB Steelers page) and found an interesting post.  Apparently the crew over there makes weekly score predictions.  In more than forty comments, some more creative than others and most predicting a relatively close score, only one commentor picked the Vikings to win the game.

Check out a sample below and make a prediction yourself.  Go ahead, be a Homer, they are.

Steelers:21 Vikings: 20

"Polamalu’s lineage can be traced through several roots. Chuck Norris mated with an Amazon Queen, and on the other side, Tony Hawk mated with Mother Nature. The two children of these spawned and fused in a tantric love session to create Troy Polamalu. The mother however died as he tore through the birth canal with a spin move."

Steelers 23, Favres 19

I think the Steelers run game goes to crap this week. Leaving the passing game the only choice. Lots of failed drives become field goals for Drunk Reed.

And the Favres will get some momentum and get a couple TD’s but in the end run out of gas.

I’m also seeing a safety for them. The score I picture is like 2 tds, 1 fg, 1 safety.
