While Atlanta is still the largest set for The Walking Dead ever, we move one day closer to our first cold weather Super Bowl. Which pretty much matches the rest of the weather in the country, but we should be okay by Super Bowl Sunday.
Since we last had an open thread:
Arif gave us another fantastic podcast.
Fearless Leader talked about the bond sale for the stadium. And he took one more jab at the Wilfare crowd, because that's almost as fun as thinking about how fun it's going to be watching a Vikings game in the new stadium. And in a grand bit of irony, Doug Mann's lawsuit that became a two week delay actually might have gotten the Vikings a better interest rate on the bonds. Which means...and you'll get a chuckle out of this...that when it's all said and done, Doug Mann might have made the state a little extra pocket change towards the stadium.
Schadenfreude, is what I think the kids call that..
It's generally considered that the Vikings are the best team never to win the Super Bowl. Eric decided it would be fun to talk about four of the best seasons the Vikings ever had that ended in almost indescribable pain and agony. So I guess that was fun. HEY THANKS ERIC SAID NO ONE EVER!
From elsewhere around the Super Bowl Web:
There are a lot of former Viking connections to the Super Bowl. First up, Tarvaris Jackson is kind of mad that he's not a starter in the NFL because LOLWUT ARE YOU KIDDING ME???
Former Vikings offensive coordinator and current Seahawks one Darrell Bevell will be matching wits with former Vikings linebacker and current Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio.
Former special teams stud Heath Farwell is living large.
Percy Harvin practiced and is expected to play in the Super Bowl.
In the Vikings vs. Sparklepony, Colin Loeffler looks like he might be lawyering up.
Our music selection is still Grammy influenced, but it's also two other things I love: Springsteen, and Girls In Their Summer Clothes, the 2009 Grammy winner for Rock Song Of The Year:
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Politics: NO. Religion: NO. Swear Jar/ spoiler text: YES. Enjoy your Thursday kids.
