Northern Exposure...

Minneapolis, Minnesota...
Eden Prairie, the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome...
The 32 yard line, 50 yards to glory...
5 seconds on the clock, a long 5 seconds...

I've only been a Vikings fan for about 7 years, so this is my first Divisional title and it mean's a lot...
At tthe beginning of the year, this is all I wanted, with Farve moving on, Detroit in disarray and Chicago letting go of all it's Offence, there was no better or easier time to get a North title...
Not that Football or the Vikings ever let you have things the easy way...

So down by 2 points, facing a 50 yarder with 5 seconds left, Tom Coughlin and Chili decide in their infinite wisdom to prolong my, and all other Vikings, agony by calling 3 timeouts...

Yeah, thanks guys, like I needed the time think on the ramifications of a miss...

Thank God for Ryan Longwell...

6 of 6 from 50 yards or more and as the sixth sailed through the uprights...

Oh yeah, it's party time!!!

It feels great to finally be North Champions and with that brings the Play-offs...

But you can stick a fork in me, I'm done...

Whatever the Play-offfs bring, good or bad, I'm just gonna enjoy the ride...

My Vikings are kings of the North and that can't be taken away...
