Brett Favre and the Vikings play Green Bay in Minnesota tonight on Monday Night Football, and if you thought ESPN would be fellating Favre in the leading up to the game, just wait until Jon Gruden steps up to the mic. If he gets through the entire game without audible slurping, I’ll be amazed.
Additionally, the Minnesota Twins are playing off for the AL Central Division title against the Detroit Tigers. Somehow, I’m not even sure this game will be devoid of Brett Favre references.
“We’re going to have a packed house,” said Michael Cuddyer. “Maybe we’ll have a whiteout. Chicago last year had a blackout — maybe we’ll have a whiteout in the Dome.”
With all the white hankies flying around inside the Metrodome on Sunday, it certainly looked like a whiteout at times, and the expectation is for another packed crowd to help cheer on the Twins on Tuesday.
The winner of the Twins-Tigers contest will be headed to New York to face the Yankees in the first round of the AL Division Series.
I thought Minnesota was already whited-out. Seriously, when was the last time you saw a black guy in Minnesota that didn’t have a uniform number on his back? And yet, it still wasn’t white enough for Kevin Garnett, who left the Minnesota Timberwolves to play in Boston. Doesn’t get much whiter than that.
