I have been listening to the radio all day here. We are getting mad props from the media here and the fans. Stuff like we are the better team, we have so much talent, we have some great playmakers, and we came out to play.

I have not heard really anything like we got lucky or the Love Boat crap.

Its nice to here this. They are really torching Dilfer, Braylon, and the rest of the clowns! Ha haa!

Another one bites the dust!

Thats cool...They played a hard game. I also have all the respect in the world for their coach.

I think that team will be all right in the future. Droughns, Edwards and a healthy Winslow could make the offense very potent with the right QB and Crennel knows how to mold a defense. Over time they will be back and competing in the AFC North.

Heck yeah!

Went to work and searched for the dorks who all they do is dog the Vikes because they know it pisses me off.

So, I gave them a little http://www.smilies-and-more.de/pics/smilies/cheeky/003.gif and http://www.smilies-and-more.de/pics/smilies/cheeky/033.gif and http://www.smilies-and-more.de/pics/smilies/cheeky/025.gif and then told then to STFU! They were not allowed to talk unitl we play them again in 4 years.

Plus, I won a 12 pack of Coors too!

If I lived in Cleveland I would have taken some dog biscuits to work with the numbers 24-12 printed on them, handed each one of those guys one & said "Here ya go, chew on this!"

I Agree I hope out Team doesn't get too big a head and steps it up again, it would be nice to go into the Pittsburgh game with a big deal of confidence.

I used to live up in Erie so I hung out in Cleveburg a fair ammount. I thought it was interesting that they said during the game yesterday that we were the last team not to have played Cleveland since their rebirth (post Model).

What they failed to mention (and I realize it was a preseason game and therefore not official) was that the Vikes christened the new Cleveland Stadium on Saturday, August 21, 1999 with a little beat down. Final score Minnesota 24, Cleveland 17. I was there sporting my Vikes jersey and getting loads of crap from all the Cleveburgers before the game (much to the chagrin of the Browns season-ticket holder I was with) but it was quite a bit quieter on the walk out.

I am glad I didnt leave my job with that company (whose season tickets I used) before that game.

Not as many people cared about the "Stadium Opener" against the Vikes as probably would have normally, because the "Season Opener" that year was also in the new stadium against the hated rival Steelers. These tickets were going to be hard to come by. Ironically enough one of the guys that was supposed to be going to that game had to cancel at the last minute, and my boss knew that I (the single guy with nothing more important to do) would go on a moments notice, so I got to go to that game too.

Man how that had to really hurt the hometown fans to open your season in your new beautiful stadium against your arch-rival and get a 43-0 asswhoopin' hung on you. (Wow I didnt think that would get through the jiggly-butt filter)

Turboe, I was there also. At the first game ever! I sat row 3 near the endzone! I was so pumped! Carter caught a TD right in front of me. I have the tickets in a frame in my Vikes HoF room.

I still have the tickets (I think) down in my box of tickets, sports programs etc. I should check for sure.

It was a great atmosphere in the stadium that day wasnt it.

As I recall I was lowerlevel, up a ways kind of goal line to endzone corner area.

I was near the pylon in the 3rd row. We got the tickets for free. I wore my Cunningham jersey, my wife wore a Vikes shirt.

There were 5 drunk jerk-offs behind us talking smack. After awhile, only one guy was left. So, I turned around and said, "not so tough without your buddies". He did not say anything.

It was only the 2nd time I have seen the Vikes.

I have been lucky as I moved around the country with jobs to catch them a few places.

In Minnesota (Old Met, & The Dome)
In Tampa, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Atlanta, & Charlotte.

Ironically enough during the three years that I had Bills season-tickets with my job, the Vikes didnt come to town one time.
