The Superbowl is here!

And here you thought you had to wait until Sunday.

This series of videos portrays the Vikings/Patriots Superbowl that might have been. It was put together by two little kids (big Vikes fans, clearly), and I've got to hand it to them: this is a nicely-done piece of cinematography. They have a coin toss, sponsorship (in the form of an Aquafina bottle and a Starbucks mug flanking the stadium), commentary that is surely more riveting than any of the drivel Fox Sports will serve up, and, of course, a game-winning TD by the one and only Adrian Peterson. There are eight clips, but they aren't labeled very clearly, so I took the liberty of neatly hyperlinking them in order (clip #1 is above). Enjoy.

and the thrilling conclusion...

Part 8

While you're enjoying that, I'm curled up on my couch eating organic cookies and watching
D2 on demand. God, I'm a sucker for that scene when Joshua Jackson goes out on his rollerblades with the duck whistle and rounds up all the Ducks. Chills up the spine. Every damn time. THE QUACK ATTACK IS BACK, JACK!
