Possible analogy for Vikings fandom: Being a fan of The Titanic in a Groundhogs Day sort of way. Devastation every time. Can't not watch.

@GettingGophery @GopherSports My single biggest complaint is squeezing $ out of long time supporters (my dad) while making them suffer crap @GettingGophery and put crap teams on the court. With the notable exceptions of women's esp W Hockey and V/B ball I've about had it. @GettingGophery do you share my disgust with @GopherSports? I mean they keep looking for down payments on seats, remove sports from tv. @iamonteamholly well I'm ashamed it took so long to get my stereo working but the reward was worth it!If you yourself are deplorable doesn't it follow that your champions are? @comcast why can't I simply choose the half dozen channels I want and only pay for those? Is your tech really incapable of satisfying?Sounding great @iamonteamholly https://t.co/PyELqeRchb

@birdchick I was wondering shoveler. Little ducklings bottom feeding through crystalline water is a beautiful thing to behold! @birdchick underwater. But sort of earthy colored. Tan? And streaked? Ducklings though. So hard to know. Like ten of em. Cute!!!!! @rationalfunk I never wanted jazz to sound any different than Van Gelder imagined it should. Archetypal renderings. Platonic forms.

@birdchick wondering about the most likely diving duck in the BWCA. Not a grebe or merganser. Fully underwater feeding.Playing at 6:30 with my old pal Chris Lynch at @astercafe on The Mississippi. #dustofsuns @Reince twisting himself into knots AGAIN this morning. You have no candidate, sir. @ka29ra @DanWilsonMusic @MattWilsonMusic that is so nice to hear Kara. Bless you.

The Wild is asking season-ticket holders if they want to stick /"Crowd Chant" or switch to "Let's Go Crazy!" as goal song. An easy choice.
