Vikings v. Saints Liveblogging

Before we start I’d like to make a meta statement-

DocuDharma is the home of guilt free Lefty sports blogging.

I intend to cover Puppy Bowl VI and Curling and Speed Skating and The America’s Cup.

So, let’s talk about Brett Favre, Super Quarterback-

15 Years with the Green Bay Packers, my second choice team after the Giants because I’m only half troll and my Viking forebearer was actually one of the original investors in what is the only publicly owned team in the NFL.

Add that to his miserable year at the helm of the Jets which while not my favorite is at least local to Stars Hollow (as are the Patsies) and you may sense my sense of betrayal and resentment that he is now playing for our hated rivals, the Vikings of Minnesota however much I may admire that at 120 years he is the oldest man in the NFL.

The Saints are good for once after years and years (and years) of futility and I have one word for you-


So now you know how every right thinking fan should root and if you don’t…

Well, you’re still welcome below.

  1. I’ll start-

    It sucks that the Jets lost.

    Darn. I haven’t had time to even look at the sight. Tks for the reminder.

  2. Well, you don’t want to cup it.

    Pants on the ground!  Pants on the ground!  Pants on the ground!  Pants on the ground!

  3. I can’t find that Prince Vikings Video on YouTube.

    What a dope!

  4. I was kind of looking forward to Vikings vs. Colts. Rooting for the middle-aged iron man.

    And Manning is a pleasure to watch.

    Just now the announcer gave the receiver’s name and I thought he said “flying saucer.”

  5. Vikings 7 – 0.

    5 minute drive!

    • TMC on January 25, 2010 at 00:54

    There was another aftershock here about 2 hrs ago. I haven’t had any reports of more injured but it makes everyone a little nervous. I kind of ignore it unless it lasts too long.

  6. And screaming clown!

    Like I don’t have enough nightmares.

  7. 7 – 7

    Quite a run after the catch too.

  8. Go Vikings!  

    Darn those Saints for comin’ back to score so quick.  There goes our no-hitter.

  9. And why do all the car comercials look the same?

  10. to be fair and balanced, shall I do a guilt free LEFTY American Idol liveblog???


    I have to go feed the minions.

  11. 14 – 7

  12. do you have any doubt that either of these teams will put the smackdown on the Bolts?

    No, that’s not a typo.

  13. Get out your pool cards.

  14. they’re using ‘All You Need Is Love’ in commercials and ‘Lovely Rita Meter Maid’ costs 500K for 9 seconds.

  15. 132 Vikings

    80 Saints

  16. 14 – 14

    I’d like to see some ball control stats.

  17. to provide alternative to watching stupid commercials…

  18. all I can say about Favre is that it was nice to see the Pack get a little taste this season of what we suffered through for all those years.

    Great game so far.  

    The Vikes remind me a lot of the Broncos team that won Super Bowl in ’98 (against the Pack ironically): old star QB and young tough running back.

  19. Shutter Island.

    Now there’s a creepy movie.

  20. for all the predictions of high scoring fireworks there’s been a lot of head knocking NFC defense.

  21. Muffed punt.

    Vikings @ 10 just before the half.

  22. Doesn’t anyone want to win this game?

  23. Check your pool cards.

  24. …with short to the half.  

  25. @ Vikings 40.

  26. Bang.

  27. Now 2nd down @ the 50.

    • TMC on January 25, 2010 at 02:38
  28. …will tie it again…

  29. …George H. W. and his wasted mind wife, Barbara Bush.

    The one who said, after inspecting the NOLA refugees at the super dome stadium in Texas, that the refugees were lucky to have it so good to be able to come to such a wonderful place–Texas Super Dome!    

  30. Vikings at the 25.

  31. And not Intentional Grounding?

  32. Does anyone want to win this game?

    Somebody just brought me a cup od red wine. These guys are resourceful

  33. In case anyone lost track like I did.

    What about I’ve been busy do people not understand?

  34. Saints Ball.

    This is like a basketball game!

  35. ~~~sloppy play.

  36. This will be a Saints TD.

  37. 27 yard carry.

  38. Farve isn’t going down easy.

  39. Another fumble.

    Now even I’m starting to feel sorry for the Vikings.

    from mattyglesias

    Vikings need to practice holding the ball

  40. Peterson scores!  At least he has as many touchdowns as fumbles now.

  41. Two minutes to go!  

    Time for one last Rally Beer.

  42. Saints intercepted… 7 seconds.

  43. and he says “I’m rooting for Farve.  I don’t want this to be his last game.”

    And I said “Dad- he’ll be back next year.  He’s the same Brett he’s ever been.”

    Gotta stop looking at the tweets


    So the Supreme Court gets to decide who the NFC champion is, right?


    By a 5-4 decision, the Court names Wal-Mart the NFC Champion.

  44. Field goals.

    No better than penalty kicks.

  45. 31 – 28.

  46. …Sorry Brett!
