Vikings punter Chris Kluwe whines about playing conditions.

Tonight's showdown between the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings promises to be an epic, classic battle that will be talked about for years to come.

Bears. Vikings. Outdoor football. Minnesota. December. A forecast calling for 6 more inches of snow as I speak one hour prior to kickoff.

This is football!

What wasn't included in that list? Vikes punter Chris Kluwe complaining the conditions and the field are too dangerous. This coming from a man who makes over a million dollars a year, including receiving 1.7 mil just for signing, to kick a ball for a living! Of course, his wimpy ramblings came in the form of a tweet, in an all too common reminder of our disconnected, weak society of twits.

Sit back Chrissy and let the real men play. I will be looking forward to this matchup!

Oh, Go Bears!

NFL Football ceased being football long ago. I haven't wasted my time on it in years.

We usually have some pretty nice Sundays here, and I'm not wasting them sitting on my ass watching pampered millionaires.

I haven't watched an NFL game in about thirteen years. It was the Jags and Steelers I believe. But it was more like two bad high school teams that night. But the pontificating was still there.
We should remind the young man that there are those in harm's way on the other side of the world. For his benefit.
I would enjoy taking him through the old time shell back initiation that I went through thirty years ago. Old Salts will understand what I mean.

This is an old post, but way to pull it out of context, dick.

The field doesn't have a field heating system like all the other stadiums. Anywho, you're a douche and I hate both teams.
