I always trick up folks when I ask them how many NFL championships the Vikings have won.

He's so adorable. I don't care how many fingers he has. :)

Still, I've been a nervous wreck for weeks.

In some ways I actually enjoy today more than Super Bowl Sunday. It's nice having two huge games.

Young folks, probably. Man, it's hard to believe that the last Vikings' SB loss came 29 years ago, when the Raiders dominated them on the ground, rushing for over 250 yards.

Last week damn near killed me. I can go through another game like that just as long as the result is the same.

Wasn't the general consensus last Saturday that the Colts were going to get killed by the Ravens? And so doesn't that mean that the Patriots are favored (by a bit) to win over the Colts today? I would think the Patriots would win today.

The Saints / Bears game seems like the one which is a toss up.

I agree with you on that. And also some years the SB just stinks anyway.

It was especially true in the era of NFC domination. I also miss the games starting at 12:30ET.

UGH!! Just noticed that this will be SUPERBOWL XLI (41).

Hard to believe it was Superbowl XVII (17) when John Riggens broke free of that hanging Miami Dolphin to run for the touchdown...creating that famous picture poster. Seems like yesterday.

Hell, I remember Superbowl I when Green Bay beat Kansas City 35-10.

I know. These late games are hard. At least we've got something to watch while we're waiting. I don't think I would have survived last week end otherwise.

The Cleveland Browns were so dominate in the AAFC, that the all -star game was the AAFC All-Stars V Cleveland Browns.

I was 13, and a huge Raider fan. After all their heartbreaking losses in AFC championship games in the preceeding years that one sure felt good.

As for the Vikes, that was the official end of their (NFC) dynasty. They had some great players -- Alan Page, Carl Eller, Jim Marshall, Ed White, Matt Blair, Ron Yary, Chuck Foreman, Fran Tarkenton. ....and coach Bud Grant.

That's why waiting on Super Bowl Sunday really stinks when your team is in it.

Did anyone in the media pick the Vikings because "it was Fran Tarkenton's time"?

The first Super Bowl I remember was SB V, when Jim O'Brien of the Baltimore Colts kicked a 33-yard FG with a few seconds left on the clock to beat Dallas 16 - 13. .....Jan. of '71.

Technically the Vikings did win the 1969 NFL championship before losing to Chefs in Super Bowl IV (Go Otis Go!).
