I've got nothing for you today, except a good joke and a delicious pot of blue-ribbon chili. My daughter Jessi Layne is visiting and we're going to fire up some stuffed jalapeno peppers for appetizers, just to get a nice edge, and maybe even tackle some Whoopie Pies for dessert. Wish you could join us for the big game. The big game is today, right?
We've had a lot of fun here in Packerland over the demise of the Minnesota Vikings and their misfiring quarterback. It's been a joke a day, sometimes two or three, since Brent's errant pass denied the Vikings a trip to Miami where they undoubtedly would have lost their fifth Super Bowl. Here's my favorite:
Subject: Super Bowl Tickets
A man goes to the Minnesota Vikings ticket office and inquires about purchasing Super Bowl tickets.
The ticket teller replies that there weren't any tickets for sale because the Vikings did not make it to the Super Bowl.
The following day the same man goes to the Minnesota Vikings ticket office and inquires about purchasing Vikings Super Bowl tickets.
The ticket teller politely replies that there weren't any tickets for sale because the Vikings did not make it to the Super Bowl.
This goes on for an entire week. The man again goes to the Viking ticket office inquiring about Super Bowl tickets and the teller says none are for sale because the Vikings did not make it to the Super Bowl.
Another week of this goes by and the man still is asking the ticket teller about Viking Super Bowl tickets.
Finally the ticket teller in a loud voice says, "I'VE TOLD YOU FOR THE
LAST 2 WEEKS THERE ARE NOT ANY TICKETS AVAILABLE BECAUSE THE VIKINGS DID NOT MAKE IT TO THE SUPER BOWL!!!"
The man replies, "I know. I drive all the way from Green Bay just to hear
you say that."
