You won't find us talking too much about politics on Purple Jesus Diaries, aside from whether or not the latest republican presidential candidate is boneable, or which democratic senator most recently sex pic'd his cock'n'balls to someone. And TECHNICALLY, this isn't a discussion about politics, but rather just about voting, and it's a bit odd, but I've NEVER found myself so passionate about a voting topic than I have RIGHT NOW.
The Minnesota Vikings want to know what your favorite uniform combination is for the team, and it is our CIVIC DUTY to tell them their circus outfit sucks unshaven pants gum.
The options listed in the picture above are the ones found for people to vote on on the bottom-right from page of Vikings.com. The question, "What is your current favorite Vikings uniform combo?" is typical, leading political question. Leading because it assumes that I like the majority of these ass smear combinations. The options given to you include fan favorites such as:
Purple Jerseys + Purple Pants
White Jerseys + Purple Pants
and the only real, honest answer, the Throwback Jersey and Pants.
The fact that, upon the time I did my own voting on this future determining poll, the Purple Jersey/Pants combo was winning 32% to 31% over the Purple Jersey on White Pants combo makes me angry enough that I wish these clownish assholes would just up and leave. You want to wear that Grimmace abortion outfit on a football field? Go right ahead, you bastards. I hope you all die and lose and die again. You deserve it for being so kitschy. What's next, are you finally going to break out the black jersey? Why not just bypass all of this and go straight for the Yellow/Gold jersey? Just go ahead and declare how much you don't care about the history of a franchise or pleasing someone's eyes. Whatever! Assholes are going to buy things anyway, amirite gais?!
Here's the thing. I can't remember the last time that the Vikings have actually reached out and wanted to hear fans' opinion on the uniform fiasco. I cannot stress enough how much of a disaster the new uniforms have been. Look at the Packers and Bears. They haven't tried to get all cute with their uniforms and guess what; they both end up in the NFC Championship game with one of them teams winning the Super Bowl. COINCIDENCE?? Of course not. And these new uniforms are essentially only tied to Brad Childress. Does anyone want to be reminded of that? Not me. I think the answer here is pretty simple.
It's our duty to vote on the website as many times as you can. It looks like it locks your vote either by IP address or by time. Regardless, we are being forced to take EXTREME measures to ensure that the throwback option comes out on top. Go vote from your home computer, work computer, from your phone, erase your internet cache, borrow your mom's tablet, your lady friend's 7 year old laptop, vote from your XBox or Playstation, whatever you can do. WE MUST WIN! GIVE THE VIKINGS HOPE! DO IT FOR PURPLE JESUS!
Not like it matters, because I'm not buying a jersey anyway, but come on. Those throwbacks are the tits.
I'm all for the throwbacks all the time... but it doesn't really matter when the team is so shitty. Wear whatever they want.. we still suck.
Purple Jerseys + Purple Pants + Yellow Shoes = Weekend at Bernie's LOL Anyone else notice Bernie Berium had 3 highlight catches in that game/video?? And had 2 more highlights plus made the end of game stats board with the throwback uniform. Of course those were his only 2 good games for those 2 seasons but...maybe there's a connection there?????? And Denees White's love slave JaRod Allen played spectacular too. Coincidence???? Throwback Uni's #1 !!!!
Looking at that Cardinals clip reminds me. if they would have lost that game, Zigy would have fired Childres then. Instead we had to tolerate that dumb ass for a little longer. Oh I like the early 80's purple jersey with the stripe over the shoulder.
@kingloud Which makes you the ultimate winner of life. Suck, NFL!
@PJD Well a 400% price markup seems like a lot for a jersey. Gonna seem like an even bigger rip off when the CBA switches rookie UFA contracts from 6 to 4 years, making the the relevant life span of a $120 jersey that much shorter
@kingloud Good lord. This is actually a brilliant, well thought out, relevant point to why the new CBA may be screwing fans. It should be on like ESPN, or Pro Football Talk or something, and not relegated to a lowly comment on this shitty website.
However, I likely will now steal your topic and make it a blog post this week. With credit to your genius, of course.
