nfc playoff field could offer vikings multiple chances at revenge


my best friend going back to middle school – so we're talking almost 30 years – wrote a book a decade ago titled, "my least favorite team is my favorite team."in it, he chronicles how being a vikings fan has made him hate every single nfl franchise — and, as the title suggests, the purple are hardly spared along the way. (you can still find a few scattered copies on amazon. i suggest the $7.99 used copies, even if you have to pay a few bucks for shipping, as opposed to the two new copies that somehow sell for $148, albeit with free shipping).after seeing him recently, i half-jokingly suggested the book needs an update. he's moved onto other scholarly pursuits, so i'm not sure that will happen.in the spirit of the book, though, this much is true: the nfc playoff field is a veritable gol






herschel walker has nothing but fond memories of the trade


on oct. 12, 1989, the vikings did something that they thought would push them over the edge and finally help the franchise win a super bowl.instead … well, let’s just say their trade with dallas for running back herschel walker did not do that. the vikings were 3-2 at the time of the trade. walker dominated his debut, rushing for 148 yards in a victory over green bay.but he cooled off. the vikings finished the season 10-6 and were demolished in the opening round of the playoffs by san francisco. they didn’t win another playoff game until 1997 and still haven’t won a super bowl. dallas used the draft picks from the deal to help build a dynasty.the deal became the subject of countless “worst trades in sports history” lists and of an espn 30 for 30 film “the great trade robbery.” vikings fans
