MINNEAPOLIS—The Minneapolis Convention Center provided shelter from reality Saturday, Feb. 3 while a real Minnesota winter raged outside. Just enough snow fell to make streets and sidewalks slick, slushy and dangerous. The Nicollet Mall a few blocks away featured ice sculptures and wind-blown streets that had people bundling and grumbling. And the traffic around the Twin Cities with the weather the way it was? Don't ask.
PHILADELPHIA—Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum had the most colorful line in the run-up to the NFC Championship game, delivered in a style as dry as a saltine cracker. "I know this is what you guys predicted back in the day, a Foles versus Keenum NFC Championship," Keenum said. "So good job to all you guys who predicted that."
MINNEAPOLIS — That was for Drew Pearson's Hail Mary. And Gary Anderson's wide left. And Brett Favre's interception. And Blair Walsh's shank. And the four Super Bowls. Of course, those four awful losses. That was for you, Minnesota Vikings fans. You got one. You finally got one. How does it feel?
