As a native Minnesotan and perpetually-in-angst Vikings fan I'm pretty excited for this game tonight. Farve coming over the Vikings made me kind of queasy at first (more angst) but since he's settled into the team and said the right things - especially about AD being the guy - I think it was the right move. We'll see if he can hold up for a whole season though - the Vikes line has been shaky (new center).
Farve, in his ESPN interview, today told the Green Bay fans "it was 16 great years. You can't take that run away. Enjoy it." Hmmm. Good interview though.
The media machine is certainly hyping this game beyond belief but I'm not sure it can be over-hyped. It really is surreal and unprecedented in sports. If you disagree or can name a more extreme example of a superstar going to an arch-rival please leave it in the comments.
