Re: NFL NEWS

At least the Vikings put up a fight. They did? Not much of one, but it was more than the Pukers are putting up. I think it was a 4pt game at the half? The game could still have been in reach at the half, though the Vikings had been badly outplayed at that point. But they weren't down 27-0.

The striking thing to me is that after the initial skirmish starts, the Stars players mostly just stand around and watch two or three Wild players try to get at Perry. He's on their team, but they know he's garbage.
