The New Orleans Saint’s victory tonight over the Minnesota Vikings was absolutely perfect. The Vikings lost in overtime after a late-game interception thrown by none other than Brent…I mean Brett Favre.
As a long-time, die-hard Packer fan, I have to say it felt very good to be on the other side of the coin tonight. I religiously followed the team through the painful, post-rotator cuff surgery Don Majkowski / Lindy Infanti years and Brett Favre’s early years. Those were dark days for the franchise. Tonight, the NFL’s all-time leader in interceptions came through once again, just as he did so often in his younger days and completed a pass at a critical moment to…the other team…..And it filled my heart with joy to be sitting at a sports bar near the Mall of America, watching 200 Vikings fans go dead silent. Priceless.
