Vikings vs. Packers

One of the biggest rivals in the NFL is the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers, with Trista being from Minnesota we couldn't miss out on watching this pivotal game. Since we don't pay the extra billion dollars a year for NFL Sunday Ticket we had to go to a local watering hole, Lil' Cooperstown Bar and Grill, to watch this historic game.

This was our first time at Lil' Cooperstown and we were quite pleased with the establishment... very clean, friendly staff, and great drink and food selection. We weren't, however, pleased with the Packers fan who sat behind us and would not keep his mouth shut during the entire game. I'll have to give him a slight break because I know Packer's fans generally have a lower IQ - it's science, you can't argue with it.

We were so amused by some of the things this guy was saying that I took notes on my cell phone of his more popular rants. While reading these, picture a man in his early to mid 40's, receding hairline with slight balding, gray Packers sweatshirt, sitting by himself, and as Trista noticed, no wedding ring (surprise!). Also note that most of these were repeated multiple times with the pitch gradually increasing.
  • Take it to the house!
  • Stuff it!
  • Put IT AWAY with the touchdown!
  • Baby Dish-up! (Although I still think he was saying 'Baby Bishop'!)
  • Go GET HIM!! Send some PRESSURE!
  • BIG RETURN, BIG RETURN, BIG RETURN!! (during a punt return)
  • We're playing with fire RIGHT HERE
  • and the grand finally came after Adrian Peterson's touch down late in the 4th quarter that gave the Vikings a one point lead, he said: Mike McCarthy, do not play chicken crap football right here!
We were going to try and take a picture of this guy but our intent would have been too obvious.
