The NFL offseason calendar had its final moment of relevancy on Thursday. The NBA and NHL playoffs are in full swing, and yet we’re talking about who’s playing football in fucking December. Well, at least it will be a good distraction from the sad demise of the Minnesota Wild. Woof. Anyways! The Vikings schedule dropped last night, and even though we already knew the opponents and a few future games, we still needed the whole entree.
Typical with every team, the reveal had to come in dramatic fashion. Nothing like what the LA Chargers did, oh my fucking god. The Vikes video was solid, nothing to write home about but still dope. And who doesn’t love John Randle? Once you get to the fine print, things shook out pretty meh. A once-in-a-every-8-seasons trip to Miami, but the game is in October. Not ideal for the snowbirds! Also not ideal? Road games at Lambeau and Soldier Field to close out the season. Seriously, has playing there when it’s freezing had EVER worked out for us?
Get The Tables
The game we’ve all waited for is here. The Stefon Diggs revenge game. Hell, if Anthony Barr is still on the team, it’ll be his revenge too after Josh Allen leapfrogged him. If there was ever a game to attend with the Bills
wild (editor’s note: too soon, Age) CRAZY fan base, SIGN ME UP. You might see an appearance from the SoS fellas and some 10K crew in Buffalo for Week 10, just sayin. I have never been to the East Coast personally, and this is the perfect opportunity to visit!
The other golden nugget in the Vikings schedule is the only home primetime game: Thanksgiving against the New England Patriots. Bill Belichick is gonna have to live with the SKOL chant all up in his face on a holiday, and good for fucking him. I can’t wait to see Za’Darius Smith and Danielle Hunter enjoy a turkey leg after they assault Mac Jones.
This will now make 3 straight seasons that the Vikings won’t have a home MNF game, ESPN what the hell? It’s all good, they never give is the fucking love we deserve anyway. All in all, I hope everyone enjoyed the hype of the schedule being released. It’s the last taste of meaningful football news we’ll get til July. Here’s to the dreaded summer abyss.
