R.I.P 2009-2010 Minnesota Vikings

The 2009-2010 Minnesota Vikings football team, beloved, adored, and admired by millions of fans throughout the world, passed away noisily at the NFC Championship game in New Orleans during overtime on Sunday, January 24th, 2010. A rarely seen disease in 2009, turnoveritis, aided by a late case of 12meninthehuddleitis, reared its ugly head five times, giving an inferior Saints team an edge in which the Vikings could not overcome. Survivors this season include the Saints, Steelers, Cardinals, Panthers and Bears (once). Preceding the Vikings in death this season were the Browns, Lions (twice), 49ers, Packers (twice), Rams, Ravens, Bears (once) Seahawks, Bengels, Giants, and Cowboys. Services are pending, but words of condolences and encouragement can be sent to

Geez...This Really Hurts

It's really hard to get over last nights loss. It would have been OK to lose to the Saints, but the Vikings didn't get beat...they beat themselves. The defense shut down the best offense in the NFL this season, but the guys on the Vikings offensive side of the ball, couldn't hold on to it. I never thought I'd see that happen. Not from this team, not this year, and certainly not in the NFC Championship game with Brett Favre as the QB. I have been a Vikings fan since they came into the league, and I truly believed this was our year to win it all. Four losses in the Superbowl. Five losses in the NFC Championship game. Different players...same results. It's obvious the football Gods are not with us. I know there are more important things going on in this world...wars, earthquakes, etc...and I shouldn't be so upset over a stupid game, but a win last night would have helped me get through all of that for the next two weeks. This one really stings.

Vikings Win is VERY Impressive

A Vikings win today was not surprising to me. The score was though...I thought they'd only win by 20. Anyone that doubted this team is for real should be on the band wagon by now. I firmly believe my favorite team is headed to the Superbowl this year!

Skol Vikings!

Gotta hate the Cowboys, right?!? I have ever since 1975 when Drew Pearson caught a pass while shoving Paul Krause to the ground. Pearson scored a touchdown, and the game was over. Oh, how I want revenge this Sunday! Everybody sing!

Skol Vikings, let's win this game
Skol Vikings, honor your name
Go get that first down, then get a touchdown
Skol Vikings, run out the score
You'll hear us yell for more
Skol Vikings, let's go!!!!

Inversion and how it effects Crosslake

Kind of foggy here in Crosslake today. I heard Belinda on KARE 11 last night, explain that it's because of "inversion". We get that a lot when the snow is still on the ground and the air starts to warm up. Evaporating moisture gets trapped by the cold air, and it becomes fog. Made the trees look pretty this morning. All of the pine trees looked like they had been flocked and ready for Christmas. By the way, Crosslake Winterfest is coming up soon. Stay tuned for details.

Groomed Trails

In case you haven't heard, we have a lot of snow up here. Trails have been groomed, and people are having a great time. Crosslake has several places you can stay and eat, so come on up...the water's fine!
