The Green Bay Packers travel to Minnesota to play the Vikings on Sunday. Even though the Vikings are fading fast, Sunday is still a huge game. This is how I envision the Packers’ locker room before they take the field.
Kevin Greene: Alright men, listen up!
Mike McCarthy: Fellas, I don’t care what the Vikings’ record is, this is our biggest game of the season. This game will…wait a minute. Dammit Howard! Put down that donut! You can eat all you want after the game!
Howard Green: Sorry coach.
Mike McCarthy: Let’s focus! The Minnesota Vikings want to be like the Green Bay Packers. They want our history. They want our tradition. They want our national recognition. The Vikings want to be like us so badly, they went and signed the modern face of our franchise. For a while, it looked like these purple people might be on to something. They put together a magical season that almost resulted in a Super Bowl appearance. Hopes were high. People were excited. It was all so special that the quarterback even decided to come back again.
A creaking noise interrupts McCarthy’s speech.
McCarthy: What was that?
Chad Clifton: Sorry coach. That was my knees.
McCarthy:Well, oil them babies up, Cliffy! We can’t let Jared Allen get 37 sacks against us again!
Mark Tauscher brings an oil can to Clifton.
McCarthy:Thanks Tausch. I knew we kept you around for a reason. Now where was I?
