Why did I watch it - NFL Classic

17 posts in this topic

Last night on the NFL channel they rebroadcast the 1998 Vikes - Atlanta game. I can't believe how much the Vikings dominated that game but lost. Also, just as Randall Cunningham was ready to take the knee I had to shut it off because I couldn't watch it again. I might need to go into therapy to get that out of my mind again.

You are right Rick. I sort of forgot how that offense performed. Quite a difference compared to watching a Vikes offense now. It seemed like every pass thrown in 1998 went over 15 yards. Now you are lucky to see a pass from a Viking quarterback to travel 10 yards. I wonder what Adrian could do with that style of a passing game. Robert Smith looked like Walter Payton back there with all of the defensive backs 15 yards off of the line of scrimmage.

I would never be able to watch that game. If I came across that, I would have have to turn it fast or end up in Theropy!.

I am reminded of that Giants game everyday. My boss who is not a sports fan, saved the sports section after the 41-0 loss. It sits in the corner of his office. He says he will burn once the Vikings make the Superbowl. I keep telling him that the paper is getting old and is a fire hazard in his office.

Can you believe it has been 32 years since our last Superbowl? And I do not see it anytime soon with Chili and T-Jack.

I was at that Atlanta game in 98 and for the second in my life I feared for my life leaving the stadium. It was ROUGH TO BE THERE LIVE. Funny thing as we approached the dome we could hear the noise from 3 blocks away, 45 minutes b-4 the game started. On the way out you could hear a pin drop on the way out and NO ONE LOOKED HAPPY.

G.C.

Was that the Vikings' catastrophic moment from which they have never had success? Or can I go all the way back to the Hail Mary?

If the Vikes had a decent coach in 98 they wouldn't have lost any games. I was in Orlando at Universal Studios when they played the Giants. I remember seeing Giant fans everywhere and I was telling them they were going to get trounced. After the game I couldn't even show my face.

They didn't loose to the Giants in 98. They lost to the Bucks during the season and to the Falcons at the NFC championchip.

I think you are thinking of 2000.

I realize that. The posts above were talking about when they lost to the Giants in the playoffs also. I remember the 98 season it was like the end of the world when they lost to Atlanta.

Chili should watch all the highlight films from the '98 season and he would see what a kicka-- offense is like. Adrian off tackle left for 4 yards, Adrian off tackle right for 3 yards and a Tahi screen for 2 yards is not kick-ss.

    • Well, yes and no.  When the distillery opened they hired Steve Nally of Makers Mark fame and all of the ingredients come from the local area.  The facility is cool, the bottle and label are cool... it had everything going for it.  But for some reason the partners decided on releasing it earlier than planned, and about this time Nally (who the story claims did not agree with this decision) parted ways with them.  Because of promotion there was a lot of interest and advanced sales and some dealers were limited to a case or two.  But it really bombed hard, and some batches (the bottles show batch numbers) were way worse than others. It didn't turn out like they planned it would and after a while most of the sales were to tourists. On the bright side, after a few years WW admitted they had a problem and began blending batches (and likely made other changes as well), and even had representatives travel the state giving free samples of the "new" WW.  It has improved slightly, but many folks still have the bad taste in their mouth.  A dealer I know told me the liquor commission in Cheyenne (all sales go through them) has something like 500 cases in the warehouse and it's a slow mover.      I actually ordered a case so I could give it out to customers, as luck would have it the bar I ordered through only got 2 cases on that first order, so all of the pre-order people just got a couple of bottles, and they kept a few back for stocking the bar.  For a couple of days patrons were sampling it at the bar and it began to get the thumbs down. I actually cancelled my order for the remaining case.  I did make it halfway through one bottle, but wound up tossing the rest.  I kept the unopened one just because it might be worth something in 20 or 30 years.   Yep nice color alright. The flavor is slightly sweet with a hint of oak, vanilla and kerosene, and it has a burn.  The first glass is sort of deceiving and after the second the flavor becomes unpleasant.  Most believe it's just too young and needed the full aging.

    • Come on Duff, you gotta know it was just picking one liar over the other. The difference being that there is a small chance his lies were not generated by the machine.  In the end it doesn't matter what he says but what he can get others to do.    I gave Barry a chance to do the job and I extend the same to Donald. My guess though is that what he will bring will not be what his voters are looking for but at times we need to go through that to get to where we want to be.   In the meantime maybe tanning booths will make a comeback
    • I am more baffled by the people who think the far right and far left are somehow different and not capable of ignorant acts. Like somehow or somewhere the extremists of your party are somehow better than the extremists of the other, hopefully some people are having their eyes opened.

      Even better there are those out there that think if only the left/right could take over and make things they way they are "suppose" to be would suddenly fix everything. Like alienating half the country is going to be good for America. The further the country gets torn in half the more it looks like there is only one place to to go and that is back to the middle where people work together. Of course that would put a lot of the media out of work but it is more clear than ever they are more of a hazzard than anything.
    • If I remember correctly Ted Cruz did call him a pathological liar during the primaries.
    • How anybody can believe any word that comes out of that pumpkin pie hole is beyond me.   Y'all got duped by a compulsive liar. At least he has that part of being a politician down pat, but for it to work ya need to slip some truth in there now and again.
    • And yet?   Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump Jan 21 A fantastic day and evening in Washington D.C.Thank you to @FoxNews and so many other news outlets for the GREAT reviews of the speech!
    • I find it amusing to watch Fox slowly come to grips with the realization that a war against the media impacts them too.   They are completely gobsmacked over the crowd size press conference. As we all should be. How embarrassing.
