Monday Night Vikings

My Vikings always drive me totally crazy!

It isn’t because they’re awful or lazy,

Or lacking in talent or Pride.

Even their inconsistancy doesn’t quite faze me.

It’s just that their record is frustratingly hazy!

Following them is a bumpy ride.

                                    And

It is never a very pretty sight

When the team is Embarrassed on Monday Night!

*

I start out the season with unbridled hope!

When the Quarterback throws a pass on a tight rope,

I believe that they’ll win it all.

On a Gridiron stage with a National scope

Do they live up to their Expectations? Nope!

They get to the Goal line and Stall.

                                     Yes

It’s never a very pretty sight

When my team is Embarrassed on Monday Night!

*

And they lose to the teams they should really beat,

As the exhausted players collapse in the heat.

Then they come up with a Spectacular win!

Just when you’re thinking the Purple Team’s pretty neat,

And their improving chances are looking so sweet,

The Dome starts collapsing in!

                                    Still

It is never a very pretty sight

When your team is Embarrassed on Monday Night!

*

Fans have been familiar with Heatbreak before.

Playoffs have been an inveritable revolving door;

And we can’t shake the playoff curse!

Jim Marshall’s wrong way run muffled the roar,

And Moss’s moon of the crowd made yellow flags soar!

So, how could it get worse?

                                   Well

It is never a very pretty sight

When our team is Embarrassed on Monday Night!

*

How about when Culpepper fumbles 5 times?

And the Coach gets arraigned for scalping ticket crimes?

or when Favre throws the Big Game away?

Then, just when our National TV rating climbs,

And the bookies are betting hundreds of nickels and dimes,

They rent the Love Boat for a Day!

                                       But

It is never a very pretty sight

When the Boys are Embarrassed on Monday Night!

*

I’ve buried my paraphernalia out in my back yard,

Because my Purple Blood boiled like bubbling lard.

Hemit, Horn, Braids , Jersey and all!

When my hermrraging heart takes the season too hard

As my favorite team gets roasted on their own petard,

And my Ego has taken a fall.

                                 Because

It is never a very pretty sight

When the Purple are Embarrassed on Monday Night

*

They never perform well in the National spotlight,

But turn into honored heroes in a sandlot fight.

Then their Nordic momentum starts to roll.

And just when you think the Vikings finally got it right,

Enough to put potential opponent’s game plans to flight,

They stink up the Super Bowl!

                                          Yet

It is never a very pretty sight

When our Heroes are Embarrassed on Monday Night!
