    Cheered for the Saints yesterday for the same reason Rosie. Now only 4 teams Lions, Browns, Texans and Jaguars) can say they've never been . . .

    It would be great if the Saints won it all.

    Missy, vacation is NO reason to miss the Superbowl!!! Are you kidding me???

    And I will tolerate all you people talking ugly about my 4-time MVP quarterback. I am still doing the MC Hammer dance!! I understand the crabapples. I'm good.

    I loved the "pound on Favre" strategy that the Saints employed yesterday. I guess you do what you have to do. Favre has never been a favorite of mine since I found out that he's an NRA mouthpiece. Those people, as a group, scare me.

    Dude needs to re-learn how to take a beating. How many times did he limp off the field yesterday only to return in excellent condition? :nono lol!

    He does know how to take a hit. That's the objective in football -- to take the real contact hits and come back to the field and play. And he's done it like no other player in the history of the NFL.

The Vikings last play was bad. He should have run with the ball, gotten them the few yards they needed for Longwell to kick the field goal, instead he threw an interception. I'm not ashamed of my Vikings. They played an awesome game, despite the damn fumbles, and they had an awesome season. I am curious whether Favre will play next year or not.
    I told you he'd grow on you Lil Bit! I'm actually thinking he may come back and play next year after hearing part of his press conference on ESPN last night. And he did address that he should have run for it on that play. The commentators on ESPN also went on and on about his courage being the one thing they'll remember from that game.

    Well, hindsight is always 20/20. The fumbles did more to lose the game for the Vikings than that last mistaken call. I really don't think they would be able to beat the Colts anyway, so I'm almost glad they didn't make it. I'd hate for the Vikings to set a new record you know.... being the first team to lose 5 Super Bowl attempts.

    I booked my tickets after the Giants were eliminated. And it came down to about $75, a direct flight one way, and not having to connect in the US, which likely would have been Miami... and I'll be in the Galapagos, so worth it?

    As for Favre, I think he'll be back. I don't think he wants to end his career on an INT, much like the Giants game two years ago.

    Missy, you'll probably get the Superbowl at your hotel. My sister travels globally for work and sees even regular season football games in some pretty unusual places. Do you have wireless and are you bringing your laptop? That way you can let us know as soon as you check in. Seriously, though, we wouldn't want to miss your expert analysis. ETA: And they'll probably stream it from NFL.com too!

    And where's Daddyzgirl? She hasn't checked in with us. Paging Daddyzgirl...

    I'm really starting to think Brett will be back too. He said it was unlikely today so that's our first sign -- Just 12,000 more iterations and three weeks into training camp to go!

    I was pulling for the Vikings because of Percy Harvin. But the vikings looked like they were playing in the shower with a bar of soap.

    I am also glad to see the Saints win too. Just because they've never been to the superbowl. I wasn't tied to any one team yesterday except for a little bit more for the Vikings.
    So many mistakes on both sides yesterday.
    Is Percy a Gator, MRD? Like my beloved Emmitt Smith?

    And can't someone teach Adrian Peterson to hold on to the ball? Tiki Barber used to fumble a lot and then he worked on it and was able to correct it. I think it was Coach Coughlin that worked with him. Right, Missy?
