i feel better than james brown

well, that wasn't pretty, but "i feel good", as the late great funk-i-fide james brown used to say (not to be confused with another famous james brown, hollywood actor and part time running back "jim brown").

i'm sure everyone here will take it all the same, i know i was hungry for a win. it feels pretty good to get a win after all the soft serve dairy queen drama (i.e. nut-buster parfait). what a loooong off-season, what a drama filled lead up to the "showdown" (read "letdown"), what bad indigestion we had against miami. and finally, with the season virtually on the line in week three. we belched one out. it wasn't the loudest or most musical burp, and it kinda smelled like salami, but it was a good burp none the less. so now we have a little more room to stomach some more of that chilly they are dishing up over in eden prairie.

so, with the relief of not having to figure out who we could draft with a top 5 pick next year, and the prospect of the bears getting packed tommorrow, and with the great joy of watching garrett hardly oof away the game for the aints, i guess i just sorta feel good. i know that everyone has been trying to inject me in the back of the shoulder with some form of purple kool-aid cocktail, and that i have resisted all attempts of others to have me spew forth some optimism. but, now there is actual tangible reason to just feel good. we won our first game in 2010, going into a bye week (where hopefully our vikes will look in the mirror a bit and come out swinging in week 5).

to focus on the bright spots, we got a double-ewe, we got 2 weeks to get our shhh together, and my favorite, adrian peterson showed us why he is the freakiest superback we have ever seen in our day.and he's OURS !!!

so below, i have pulled for your viewing and listening pleasure, some feel good videos with a loose theme to celebrate our "victory none the less" over the fiercest lions team we have ever seen (gotta give em a lil boost)...

first up, an old classic with a purple twist, just for the flippin fun of it...


well, that didn't quite reflect the height of my mood, because "i feel better than james brown"...


well, the other james brown was more than just an actor, he was "more human than human" too...


all this just reminds me of what i feel when i watch this guy. so, "ladies and gentlemen"...
i bring you the almighty, purple jesus...


i hope you enjoyed watching these mindless videos as much as i did. if not, who cares...we won!!!
