So this game was pretty much about Brett Favre. I didn't know that that would happen, since people don't really pay as much attention to football records as, say, baseball ones. Anyway, he got his record-breaking touchdown pass near the beginning of the game, to Greg Jennings. Poor Smooth Skin--he wanted to catch that pass. Oh well, Jennings is nice too (literally). The Vikings played pretty rough, injuring (temporarily, luckily) at least four Packers. I'm so glad they managed to stay in the lead the entire game! The Vikings have this amazing rookie running back and it was scary seeing him twice run completely untouched for like 40 yards. It was tough, as the Metrodome always is, but it was *okay* this time.

Favre got another touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, but the best part was him jumping around like it was 1996 after the record-breaking TD. That BALL was snatched up immediately and is going to the football hall of fame...and we're wondering, did they snatch up that second TD ball too? I mean, it broke the same record...are all Favre's TD-pass-balls going to be collected from now on? Haha!

Superstition update: Couldn't find my hoodie so I wore a laughable getup--my sleeveless Packers tank on top of a tight long-sleeve shirt. Like I said last week, I wasn't going to take a risk against the freakin' Vikings, so I had to wear a new thing, preferably a top, with a long sleeve shirt underneath (that sleeveless tank was my only non-missing Packers top I haven't worn yet this season). Heh. So the only new thing I learned is that I can look slightly ridiculous and it'll still work.

This game was the first of the season on tv here (woo-hoo, sleeping in!). Next week's game against the Bears is on tv too, everywhere. It's on NBC Sunday night.

and yes, "4-PLAY" was a real fan sign...a few seasons ago ;)

EDIT--on the local news, they're talking about a "sickness" sweeping Minnesota, called the "purple blues" (because of the Vikings' loss). Muahahaha.

The Panthers TOTALLY sucked today, but I'm kind of happy about it. Jake was out with an injury and they had our new QB Carr start. Some people have been saying we need to replace Jake with him...that showed them. The same thing happened last season when Jake got injured and was replaced by Weinke...we sucked so bad. I just want to go =P to all the anti-Jake people.

I'd totally be like that (if people actually turned on Favre like that, I'd be pretty pissed!) too. Sorry they lost though! The Cowboys are the only other 4-0 team in the NFC...dunno about the AFC though. I wouldn't be surprised if the Patriots were still undefeated.

Oh, and I hope Jake heals quickly! It's always scary when the QB gets hurt.

I hope so too! Watching the Panthers play without him just isn't the same =(

Really, you don't think wrestling is gayer? ;)
(but I so love all the manlove in football)

Hey, just 'cause I have a fandom you don't, I'm a dork? :p Ohhh well.
