Howdy again Pride of Detroit! I have to say the first time I came over here this year I had a sense of foreboding, yep for some reason (a pretty good one actually) I felt that we were going to get curb stomped by the Lions. Obviously we all know how the game went. With that said though I come back to your hallowed halls and I have to admit I feel the same dang thing. With Harvin out (there goes our kick off returns..), Cook out (the guy who hangs on Calvin all day), Ponder playing like a dumpster fire sitting on a field of dead kittens I have officially lost my happy optimism from earlier in the season. While this game is at the dome and you all have to very real worry of something collapsing on your team (now that's home field advantage right there!) I honestly can't see the Vikes pulling this one out on a team that is currently on the rise. I think it will be a solid match though and AD will once again show people why he even makes Chuck Norris sleeps with his light on.
So you all know the deal chat about the game, star wars your favorite cabbage patch kid, whatever I'm pulling this as a 27 - 14 Viking loss. :p Wait! What is this purple glasses falling from the sky with Tarkington and Paul Krause holding them out to me!!! YES!!! In a defensive battle where Stafford gets abducted by aliens and Ponder is replaced by his much more accurate pod persona Vikes win 28-24!!!! WOOOT!!!!
One last thing I don't know if any of you watch the Vikes, but if you do what do you think we should do with Ponder? Bench him and play Webb? I know you guys love him. :)
