(couldn’t resist, man — the 40-year-old QB is rather remarkable.)

How Bout Them Cowboys, you keep talking about Dallas moving the ball on the Vikings, yet have failed to acknowledge that the #1 defense is getting shredded right now.

I’d worry more about stopping the Vikings at this point. Because this has the makings of a blowout about to happen.

Is it OK to hope that the Metrodome gets sucked into the depths of hell rather then someone winning this game?

cabravesfan, as a Packer fan and a Cowboy hater, I agree with you. This is, for me, like watching a Mets vs. Yankees’ game. I guess because of Favre, I’m probably leaning toward the Vikes. (I know you don’t agree with that!)

N8, yes, Cowboy hater here too. Never liked them for as long as I can remember, but I’m trying to find a reason to like the Vikings. Favre, I guess. Manning and the Colts would be my choice to go against the Vikings because I’d like to see a Favre/Manning showdown in the superbowl.

N8

DOB, totally agree. Hey. I was wrong. What more can I say? I’ve admitted it since it was obvious that he wasn’t going to go down due to injury.

Still don’t like how he handled it. Also stil think that had the Vikings focused on their running game, they still could have been a force without Favre, due to that defense. But he certainly has made them more potent, and unpredictable.

But as I’ve stated for two weeks arguing with P.L., there isn’t and wasn’t a chance in hell of the Vikings losing this game. And they’re showing why I was right. Unless of course, Childress gets stupid with a big lead, and continues to have Favre sling it around, risking quick score “pick-6’s”, which Favre is capable of firing at any moment.

But it looks as though the Viqueens are headed to N.O. for the NFC title game.

Yeah, but you know Favre will eventually have his inevitable “I drink your milkshake” moment. Like Daniel Day Lewis in There Will Be Blood, so poised, so mesmerizing, so in control, but he can’t resist having that what the hell over the top moment.

I am not taking anymore pain killers. I am not in pain as much as I am sore because of the physical therapy. I changed my name for you. I had a great doctor. However I have sever screws/anchors in my arm. I am trying to get my range of motion back to where it used to be.

Heath, I find the quality varies from location to location like most chain places. When it’s off, it’s not worth it. But when they open a new one they’re usually on for a while, IMO.

What is a “Brooklyn Strike” in bowling? —- Heath

The same as a “jersey-strike”. Old bowling term that originated in NY. It means collecting a strike by crossing over to the opposite side of the head pin. For a righty, it would be hitting the lefty’s pocket.
I’m assuming that most of the country would just call it a “crossover-strike”. (Except in San Francisco. I believe there it’s called a “bi-strike”. ;)

AustinBrave: Yankees sell out some games, but not that many. They have the largest stadium in spring training. Plus I don’t think Braves are one of their biggest draws.

Addendum: I just checked and Yankees sell out most games at Legends Field, not just some. And especially since they’re defending champions and all … if I were you I’d buy in advance, to be safe. But I’m sure you can probably scalp tix even if it sells out.
