I’m Rattled By Vikings Plane Saga
While taxiing after a safe landing, the team plane slid off the runway and became stuck. We are waiting patiently to exit the plane.

Last night, reports came in that Minnesota Vikings plane skidded off the runway and went into the grass at Appleton’s airport. Vikings were stuck there until 11 pm or so when Appleton Fire Department took them off via a cherry picker. I’ve felt confident all week about Packers, but now, I’m a little concerned that this stupid plane thing will bring the team together for one more game.
Let’s face it, Vikings are going to be looked at as one of the disappointments of the 2016 season. They’ve lost seven of their last nine games after starting the season 5-0. Mike Zimmer will probably find his way to the hot seat due in large part to his hard-ass messaging wearing thin with players. They looked dead in the water but being stuck in airplane might be the thing to figure some shit out. These players were forced to talk and I’m sure Green Bay was brought up plus Minnesota’s lack of success in the past couple months.
I could be overthinking it since I haven’t ate breakfast yet. We’ll see. Kickoff is in a couple hours.
