The NFC Championship game was exciting. A game that was so closely played that there wasn't a boring moment in it.I was rooting for the Vikings for no particular reason.

The Vikings had the best of it, and if you looked at the stats, they won by a score of something like 35-14. Unfortunately, they had two liabilities. One being, one of the best running backs to ever play the game, Adrian Peterson, who appeared to be carrying a greased pig rather than a pigskin. The other, future Hall of Famer Brett Favre, who seems to go wobbly in his decision making in the most important games.

The Saints did what they had managed most of the season, hang on until they could pull out a win. It is a pleasure to see a franchise with such a poor history finally make it to the Super Bowl.

I doubt the Super Bowl will be nearly as entertaining as this game was. Somehow, I feel that the Peyton Manning led Colts will not let the Saints hang on.

I think you meant Adrian Peterson, who was the Vikings fumbler-in-chief. Tomlinson plays on the Chargers. They got beat the week before by the Jets.

Thank you Mark, for some reason I'm always confusing those two. Peterson is such a good runner, to bad he can't hang on to the pill.

Thanks for cheering on the Vikings even after they beat up on your Cowboys.
