2.  we’ll talk some NFL action from the weekend coming up next, but first of all……THIS…..

i was thinking about some of the great MINNESOTA VIKING’S teams back in the 70’s, when they were FUN TO WATCH, because they won games and actually went to super bowls…remember those days, viking’s fans?

so, i thought we would salute a few good old MINNESOTA VIKING’S players…..

 

those MINNESOTA VIKING’S great teams in the 70’s, probably wouldn’t have had the success they had without their head coach, BUD GRANT……

from what i hear, BUD GRANT was a pretty quiet man, but knew football…and people listened…..BUD GRANT is now, believe it or not 85 years old……

probably my favorite MINNESOTA VIKING’S player ever, was quarterback FRAN TARKENTON……man, could that guy scramble with the football…….

NFL players back in those days didn’t make a lot of money, but that didn’t matter much to FRAN TARKENTON…he became a multi millionaire, or billionaire, after football….FRAN is now 72 years old….

before ADRIAN PETERSON, there was CHUCK FOREMAN…man, i used to LOVE watching this guy tear up the backfield….he was incredible….i actually met CHUCK FOREMAN at the old WALMART store in ABERDEEN a few years back..he was there signing autographs….cool, huh?  CHUCK FOREMAN is now 62 years old…..

back in the good ole days, the VIKING’S kicker was FRED COX….he looked like an old guy running up to the football, but was highly sucessful at it…….

i didn’t know this, but FRED COX is the inventor of the NERF FOOTBALL….yeah…it’s true………the same FRED COX who kicked for the VIKES, created NERF FOOTBALL…he said he came up with the idea while playing with the VIKINGS….FRED COX is now 73……

and finally, probably the most famous VIKING’S player after football was AHMAD RASHAD….he was a prolific wide receiver for the VIKINGS who went on to fame on tv and in sportscasting…..

AHMAD RASHAD is now 63 years old…..

and if you remember correctly, AHMAD RASHAD used to be married to the “COSBY MOM”, PHYLICIA RASHAD….

and, another former MINNESOTA VIKING’S star made it big on tv……his name is ED MARINARO……

you probably remember him from “HILL STREET BLUES.”

3.  okay…on to some hot hitting, NFL ACTION from sunday……….

first of all, MY TEAM….THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS….

 

***my boys won a very important game with the BALTIMORE RAVENS….we needed to win to keep pace to make the playoffs…but, things got a big dicey when our big star ROBERT GRIFFIN III took a monster hit to his leg……..

 

Ravens%20Redskins%20Football_JPEG-0e380

 

REDSKINS NATION couldn’t breathe for quite a while as he hobbled around the field….the good news is that he is okay…it’s a knee sprain and not an ACL or MCL………

after RG3 left the game, our backup quarterback, ANOTHER ROOKIE, KIRK COUSINS, came in, threw a touchdown pass, and ran in a two point conversion for our win…..

***remember when the ARIZONA CARDINALS were 4-0?  yep…they were…and yesterday they were smashed 58-0 by the SEATTLE SEAHAWKS………FIFTY EIGHT TO NOTHING…..how can a professional team  get killed that bad…not a field goal…not any points….embarrassing….if their coach KEN WHISENHUNT makes it thru the offseason, it will probably be a miracle……he’s a great guy and a great coach, but the coaches seem to take the brunt of the crap…..

***how about ADRIAN PETERSON from the MINNESOTA VIKINGS?  this incredible man is coming off a horrible knee injury last season, and is having a career year…..he got another two touchdowns and over 150 yards yesterday………he’s on pace to get  over 2,000 yards, and he wants to break the all time rushing record…he’s an amazing player…..

***DANG IT…..the DALLAS COWBOYS and NEW YORK GIANTS both won yesterday…i need them to lose to help my SKINS chances of making the playoffs………oh well, it’s still early…TONY ROMO will flop and DALLAS will lose….hee hee………

***my former radio co-host TANEA and her family were at the GREEN BAY PACKERS and DETROIT LIONS game in WISCONSIN last night…..it seems like every game show goes to has snow and 100 below wind chills..ha ha……anyway, my buddy go to see her PACK win……….the weather looked horrible while they were playing….and it looked incredibly cold, too……

***should be a dandy of a monday night game tonight…..HOUSTON TEXANS VERSUS THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS……may the best team win….seriously, they most likely will be the “best team.”

 

4.  I’M SO EXCITED……i won my fantasy football contest this weekend, which means, for the first time ever…..I’M IN THE FANTASY FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME…..my opponent will either be my nephew’s beautiful wife SAM, or her brother TAYLOR, who is like our “third son.”  they both have players playing tonight, so after tonight’s game, i’ll know who my opponent is for next weekend…I’M SUPER PUMPED….

 

5.  i’m so mad at my wife….not really…i love that woman with every ounce of my being……..but, she did something horrible…she got me hooked on “DEXTER.”

 

DEXTER (Season 2)

 

“DEXTER” is on SHOWTIME, and i really don’t like getting sucked into the shows that you have to watch every week….see?  that’s my ADHD kicking in…ha ha…….anyway, this show is INCREDIBLE….and next sunday night is the last show of this season, leading into the FINAL season next season……thanks babe…..now i can’t watch sunday night football because “DEXTER” is on…oh wait…so THAT was her plan…….

 

she also has me hooked on two others shows………HBO’S “THE NEWSROOM.”

 

The-Newsroom

 

and FX’S big hit “JUSTIFIED.”

 

justified-01

 

***if i had a gun to my head and had to choose, it would be a fairly simple answer……my favorite show of those three shows is….”JUSTIFIED.”  love that show…can’t wait for the new season in january……

 

 

7.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A woman was leaving a convenience store with her
morning coffee when she
noticed a most unusual funeral procession
approaching the nearby
cemetery.

A long black hearse was followed by a second long
black
hearse about 50 feet behind the
first one. Behind the second hearse was a
solitary
woman walking a pit bull on a leash. Behind her, a short distance

back, were about 200 women walking single file.

The woman was so
curious that she respectfully
approached the woman walking the dog and
said,
“I am so sorry for your loss, and I know now is a
bad time to disturb you, but I have never seen a funeral like this.
Whose
funeral is
it?”

“My husband’s.”

“What happened to him?”

The woman
replied, “My dog attacked and killed him.”

She inquired further, “Well,
who is in the second hearse?”

The woman answered, “My mother-in-law. She
was
trying to help my husband when the dog turned on her.”

A poignant
and thoughtful moment of silence passed between the two women.

“Can I
borrow the dog?”

“Get in line.”
