Friday Funny 1385: Vikings Win!! The Minneapolis Miracle!

I've been a Vikings fan since I was a boy. So you can imagine the screaming in our house on Sunday night when the "Minneapolis Miracle" happened: 4 lead changes in the last 3:01 of the NFC Divisional Playoff with a MIRACLE in the last 10 seconds (QB Case Keenum to WR Stefon Diggs for 61 yards) to get the Vikings to advance to the NFC Championship Game! My wife and I screamed so much we made 3-year-old Charlie cry! Oops.

Here's the 2 minute clip of the play (in case you've been living under a rock [or not in Minnesota] for the last 5 days). And here's a nice 6 minute piece from NFL Turning Point about the end of that game. And here are some fun fan reactions put together by the Minnesota Vikings. (I didn't know Michael Strahan wanted the Vikes to win that bad!)

Anyway, here are the best Twitter reactions that I've come across from after that game:








Former MPLS mayor. And she's right: heartbreaking losses are what usually happens TO the Vikings.


Same point as above.


Such an anti-climactic extra point that took 5 minutes to get going... then they just kneeled down.
















SAME.




SERIOUSLY: the ENTIRE team was all class and quite humble in their post-game interviews.
My wife and I were super impressed. She may have developed a crush.













Finally, a church where we sometimes go to mass (because they have a Sunday night 7:00 pm mass that works well on full/busy weekends) posted this after the game:


Brilliant.

Again, some fun videos: here's the 2 minute clip of the play, here's a nice 6 minute piece from NFL Turning Point about the end of that game, and here are some fun fan reactions put together by the Vikes.

A Few Days of Rest

>> Monday, January 15, 2018

On Thursday morning, I looked like this:


Pic taken 24 hours later (Friday morning) at the gym.

I saw my chiropractor on Thursday, and he checked out my sore left knee. (I know a chiro isn't the BEST person to see regarding running issues, but I trust him, he's close, and he's in-network so it costs me $0. He's my first opinion many times.) The final issue that made me come in to see him was on Friday the 5th, I was doing my normal leg exercises after my run (the same exercises I've been doing for years). And when I did the eccentric quad work and brought the weight up with both legs and then released my right leg to slowly lower the weight with just my left leg, the outside of my left knee would SCREAM at me. So I figured it was maybe time for a break from "weight room legs."

My chiro tested a few things to rule out major meniscus issues (whew!), and after 10 minutes of questions and poking, he said "you're really not giving me much to work with" with a smile. He thinks I just tweaked a little something in my knee (nothing specific that he could name), so I took a few days off. I'd already started some rest when I saw him on Thursday: I hit the trainer relatively normally on Tuesday, but then I skipped my run on Wednesday.

So I rested Wednesday through Saturday, but my chiro told me to try something relatively "normal" over the weekend before I see him again tomorrow. So I ran 4 easy treadmill miles yesterday, and things felt OK. (That was running 1 week after my previous run on last Sunday.) It didn't feel perfect, but I didn't expect it to. And the best news was that it felt OK the rest of the day as well (when it would normally get a bit achy). So I'll go back for a bit more "graston technique" and other tissue work tomorrow:


The glorious, exotic views at the Hennepin County Medical Center.
(This is the door to the "Integrative Health" office where my chiro works.)

Happy Monday! And WHAT A VIKINGS WIN YESTERDAY!! :)
