Please Cease and Desist!

Dr. Z of Sports Illustrated has just done what I want never to happen. He has picked the Vikings to win the Superbowl. It has happened before and obvioulsy has never worked out. The last time was in 1998 and they didn't even make the big game. Don't get me wrong, I am excited to have the Vikings postitioned to be considerably better than they've been of late, but picking them to win the whole enchilada? I am generally not superstitious but in the this case I don't want any of what Dr. Z is selling. It is a courageous (stupid in the eyes of the other IDYFT fools) pick for the good doctor, yet his courage makes me feel all funny inside. The Vikings don't need any inflated sense of their own quality and worth before training camp even begins.

Dr. Z take it back!

I'll have my kids predict the next superbowl winner for you, if they pick the vikings - you must poop your pants. BOOTY!

The kiss of death. Sorry Vikes fans. No one gets paid more to know less about the NFL than Dr. Z.

Dr. Badcock has almost released the data from the first test drive of his new & improved prognosticator -- this one has a cupholder, for instance.
