The Last Ultimate Misery Mix 2011 Challenge


Here at DN we like to give the people what they want. Sometimes we're better at that than we are at other times, but creating the best interactive Minnesota Vikings fan community is the goal. And it is that interactive quality that has made the Ultimate Misery Mix 2011 fun.

With the UMM2011 drawing to a close, the time has come to present your final challenge topic. Well, it would be time for the final challenge topic, but I'm calling an audible because I really liked two of the challenge topics that DN readers submitted. So, that means we'd have 13 tracks awarded to DN readers and a bonus track.

Track 12 Challenge Topic

Collectively, there's a pretty big Chris Kluwe crush going on here at DN. The Vikings' punter, Kluwe is a geek renaissance man who is becoming known as much for his band references and his funny tweets, as he is for his directional punting. He's a sci-fi-reading, World of Warcraft-playing, snarky response-writing, NFL oddity--and that's why we love him. Hence the Track 12 challenge is to submit a musical ode to Chris Kluwe. Kluwe is such a character, one can only wonder what kind of songs he'll inspire.

Track 13 Challenge Topic

Vikings fans might not have been anticipating a championship-worthy team in 2011 the way they were in 2010, but I think it's safe to say that they were hoping for something better than 3-13. But with a lousy season comes a high draft pick and hope for a better season next season. That's why the Track 13 challenge is to choose a song for the Vikings' roster in 2012. Who will they draft? A receiver? An offensive tackle? A corner back? We don't know, but we have the hope that all it takes is a good draft to turn our team around. Track 13 is a track for the hope that the, as yet unknown, 2012 roster will hold.

There are your two final UMM2011 challenges. Don't forget to label which challenge topic your musical selection is intended for, two song selections per challenge topic, and all submission must be in by Tuesday, January 31, 8pm CST. I'll post the results later in the week. I'm looking forward to seeing the songs you submit.
