Sometimes we have to decide if the glass is half empty or half full. And when the final evidence is that the margin of victory included the results of a coin toss, and two close plays in OT that you could not really overturn because even high-def TV really can't tell the difference in whether one was a good catch or another a first down, then you have to remember that not much is left to be done to make this VIkings team a champion.
There are always mistakes in any football game, and when you have a game that could have had another winner if one of several of the many plays in the game had gone differently, then how you view the contents of this glass says much more about the observer than the number of molecules of H2O.
No matter how if feels right now, it was a game and a season that come to the end, not the planet Earth.
For now everyone will continue to wonder if Favre is really retired or not. The world is actually not a whole lot different than before today.
Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints and good luck to them in the Super Bowl, because sometimes a less than measurable quantity of luck is all that it takes.
