The NFL network and ESPN Classic gets me through. Also, my daily dose of PPD.

I am getting a TIVO next year. VCR tapes just don't cut it for me. Then I can pause live TV. So, when the Vikes are about the win the Super Bowl, I will pause it for a long time and savor the moment! :salute:

I'm just counting the months to watch the Minny defense finally knock some people out and then hoist Favre's head on a stick.

You think you guys got it bad! We've been hockey-less for months up here and us Canucks usually make a seamless slide from football season into the the NHL playoffs...but not this year....(the idjuts!) Luckily I have about 75 Viking games taped since '98...I just watched 3 last week...it was great! It's kind of weird looking back at some of the old games though...saw one from '98 that had a sign reading "we love you Red MCombs!" from fans in the metrodome who labelled themselves as "PurplePride"! (Don't know if there was any connection to this site or anything)...but things have sure change as far as opinions about the ownership!

I am lost without hockey too. I usually only watch football and hockey now it is just football. I live in the area of Minnesota where Hockey is above mostly everything. College Hockey is a life saver.

I have a ton of games on tape! I haven't started to go thtough withdrawal yet, after the draft is when it really hits. That's when I will throw in the playoff game and some of the other games!!

I think I have one vikings game on tape and they lost to Shaun King and the Bucs on Monday night football.

What about Arena League?

Sunday's game was GREAT!!

It's not the NFL, but there is a lot of scoring.

Maybe we could sign a kicker from there. The goal posts are narrower, taller and they still make it a good percentage of the time.....

finnishvikingsfan
03-15-2005, 02:18 PM
If I have to I would watch the CFL. The arena leauge is pretty enjoyable to watch.
