Please Let This Be A Really Bad Dream

No, no, no, no, noooooooooooooooooo! Are you [expletive deleted] kidding me, after the Brett Favre fiasco?

Vikings might want to nab McNabb

The Vikings seem to have a strong interest in securing a veteran quarterback once the NFL lockout ends.

It also might be possible the Vikings and Redskins have had some conversations about a deal for 34-year-old quarterback Donovan McNabb, who definitely won’t be a member of his current team once play resumes.

Of course, no deals can be made while the lockout is in progress, but I don’t know if there is any rule against the clubs talking about making a deal.

One reason why McNabb might be the veteran quarterback the team will sign is because Vikings coach Leslie Frazier is personally familiar with McNabb. Frazier was a defensive assistant with the Eagles from 1999 to 2002, when McNabb was in his prime.

This is unbelievable, do the Vikings ever want to win a Super Bowl? An ancient Brett Favre couldn’t get us there, what makes anyone in their right mind think a geriatric Donovan McNabb can get it done? He couldn’t win a Super Bowl in Philadelphia, in his prime, and now he’s 34 and all but washed up! Why the [expletive deleted] do we have to keep trading for QB leftovers, why can’t we draft a QB for the future? Why do the Vikings insist on disappointing their fans and breaking their hearts year in and year out?

/is it wrong to root for the NFL lockout to continue?

Good News, Bad News

First the good news:

Soldiers Get Super Bowl Dispensation

On Super Bowl Sunday, millions of Americans will be enjoying salty snacks and drinking sudsy beers. But what about our brave men and women in Iraq?

Alcohol is strictly forbidden by the American military in Iraq and Afghanistan. But General Raymond Odierno, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, issued a waiver earlier this month allowing the soldiers to drink beer on February 1, Super Bowl Sunday.

While the soldiers certainly deserve this break from the rules, officials want to make it clear that they won’t be partying irresponsibly. Each person will only be allowed two beers, and drinking will be limited to dining areas.

Louis Glunz Beer Inc., a Lincolnwood distributor, is sending over 4,000 bottles of Schlitz beer to troops in Iraq. The free suds, along with 2,000 pizzas from Lou Malnati’s, will be packed up Friday and flown overseas courtesy of DHL, an international express mail service.

/of course, the bad news is that they only get two beers each and it’s Schlitz
