There weren’t many “super” characteristics regarding Super Wild Card Weekend in the NFL… except super cold temperatures. I couldn’t help but laugh at some of the fans in Kansas City on Saturday night. All jokes aside, these NFL playoffs may seen even scarier to Vikings fans than most years. Not only did the purple miss the playoffs this season, but on Super Wild Card Weekend, Vikings fans had to watch 2 divisional foes advance to the Divisional round. With the Lions and Packers both slated to play again this weekend, I know this can be really hard on Vikings fans and I’m here to offer a few solutions to keep the NFL playoffs enjoyable.
Michelob Golden Light (Lots of it)
It’s the Divisional Round of the Playoffs… We’re not drinking Spotted Cow… or Bell’s Two Hearted Ale. In Minnesota, WE DRINK GOLDEN. End of story. Maybe buy that extra case this week when you’re at the liquor store. It’s -5 outside let’s be honest, you aren’t going anywhere this weekend. It’s beer and football all weekend long!
While we all enjoy a Golden Light, I understand a few of us out there are partaking in dry January. These THC seltzers from Cultivated CBD are a great alternative. As you can see below, Bossman loves these things. Find a store near you!
Another element is the bone chilling temperatures we are experiencing in the Twin Cities. The best way to combat that is with a nice hearty meal. You could order a pizza, but there’s a 50% chance that pizza is already cold when it hits your door in this weather. Tater tot hot dish was made for temps like this.
NOTE: The Wild play the Panthers on Friday night. They probably won’t win, but if they do you can get 50% off Papa Johns on Saturday.
Keep Your Head in the Game!
The best way to stay in the game is to get some grease on these playoff games. Even though my team isn’t playing this weekend, I will still have plenty of action. The easiest way to get into the game is with Underdog Fantasy. Their Pick ‘Em games allow you to simply pick higher or lower on the stats of the players in each playoff game. Use code “10K” when you sign up and they’ll match your first deposit up to $100.
For all the petty ones out there, yes you can actually pick Lions and Packers players to perform poorly. That wins you money and gives you the enjoyment of watching a division rival lose. We understand Minnesota isn’t a legal sports betting state, but our friends at BettorEdge offer a social betting marketplace to get some action on these playoff matchups which can be used in Minnesota legally! You can use code “10K” when signing up for a FREE $20.
In my honest opinion, the NFL playoffs are much less stressful when your team isn’t involved. So that’s a positive. Look, we only have 7 NFL games left in the season. We have to cherish each and every one of them, but it would be a hell of a lot easier if those cheesehead fucks got bounced against San Francisco this weekend.
