OK, I cannot even think straight. Can it be?
I feel like a teenage girl who just found out a girl overheard someone say that a boy likes me. And he is cute. .. OK, maybe a little feminine. How about the first time someone got a "Christmas Bonus"? Or when someone offers to snow plow the driveway because they are bored. Very happy, indeed.
Whatever the case, this is a rumor we embrace. Randy Moss and his electrifying history of pass receiving returns to the Vikings in Brett Favre's final season. Given the excellent running game to date by Adrian Peterson, and the impressive start of the season by the defense, this is a rumor that quenches thirst like no Ade can. Or ale.
Even if we let go of a first round pick, as long as we sign Randy Moss to a couple of years this is a win-win scenario. Even if he only stayed the year, it would be worth that much just to watch Packers and Bears fans sweat. They will say things like "Favre doesn't have it anyway" or "Moss cannot do it himself". but they would be lying ... to themselves and us. They will not be happy. They will know that Moss is exactly what is missing from last year's team. If Sidney Rice does return, Minnesota could possibly have the best run AND pass offense in the league come playoff time.
I know I am getting carried away, but ... hey, it is Randy Moss!
Oh please, oh please, be one of those true rumors...
Like a solid foreshadowing of a 50th year celebration in February.
