Minnesotans should recognize my title as those words which Al Michaels spoke seconds before Minnesotan Herb Brooks coached the 1980 U. S. Olympic hockey team to an unlikely victory over the Soviet Union. They went on to become world champions and wear the gold medal.
So what does all that have to do with NFL football?
The time is now. This too is a moment in history. The Minnesota Vikings are in trouble. Their stadium is one of the worst money-generating platforms in the NFL. There are not enough fancy suites to sell to businesses entertaining their clients. Minnesota is not a populous state, and times are tough. A lot of Minnesota front runners even run around in Packer caps. Bridges collapsing, recessions happening, all add to a very dark picture.
But now, #4 is on our side. However you feel inside about all of this, remember that this is the point in history that could make or break your Minnesota Vikings. Even an idiot might realize you don't let a rich Californian buy up your Super Bowl championship team and ship it off to LA, even if some governors are much dumber than any TV wrestler.
The Vikings may have all the cards this year. See the analysis by Mike Mayock: http://www.vikings.com/media-vault/videos/Mike-Mayocks-Vikings-Season-Preview/97ac6de6-ac61-4254-b1df-d3d9aabf363c
Miracles do happen now and then. With everyone pulling together, we can make this dream a reality.
Let's do it. Let's make hell freeze over!
