Well, it was a good run.  Not that we expected to make the  Super Bowl or anything this year, but the Wild Card game against Green Bay was a pretty pathetic way to end the season.  Thankfully it was a night game so Griffin didn't have to witness much of it.  It would have broken his heart.

To prove he is not fair-weather-fan, he still daily requests his viking shirt and viking dipe.  I have to tell him they're dirty and he has to wait until Mommy can clean them.  He also points out purple anything and calls it Viking _____.  (Purple nose on the bear=Viking nose, purple shirt on anyone=Viking shirt, he even pointed out the FedEx awning outside the store and said Viking store.)

A few Friday nights ago (and all of that week) in anticipation of the game, he was practicing his "first down horn."
And while I'll never be able to record it in its entirety, he can sing the entire SKOL VIKINGS song.  His version goes something like this....he did get a little distracted watching himself on the ipad while recording, hence the head shaking and the "what Giffy doing?" toward the end....

Skol Vikings honor name, go get a firstdown, go get a touchdown, rock 'em, sock 'em, fight, fight, fight, fight. Skol Vikings...score....cheer for more!  V-I-K-I-N-G-S! Skol Vikings! (sometimes this prompts him to start back at the beginning:)

Though he is sad that "the Vikings lost," he will probably be cheering for the Ravens, since they also wear purple....

...until next year....

Happy Superbowl weekend!
