Life after footy...

Last week me old mucker Faz asked me what I'd do with myself after the AFL season finished. Well... meet Pablo the Viking!

That's right, everycat! I've selected the Minnesota Vikings as my team for the National Feline League season. Following them will keep me occupied until February, when Aussie Rules will be close to starting its pre-season again. Why the Vikings, I hear you ask? Well, Kate's boss is originally from Minnesota, so it just seemed fitting. Thanks so much to Maggy and Zoey for the great Vikings artwork.

I know that the Vikings haven't had the best start to the season (we're 1-2, and lost our home game against the Packers 23-16 last weekend- congrats Zippy, Sadie and Speedy!), but I'm hopeful that things will look up. Especially since they've got me cheering for them now:
Skol Vikings! Let's win this game
Skol Vikings! Honor your name.
Go get that first down
Then get a touchdown
Rock 'em, sock 'em, FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT! FIGHT!
Go Vikings, run out the score, you'll hear us yell for more!
Skol Vikings, let's go!

Pabs, mucker-mate, glad to hear you've got yourself a team sorted for the summer. The Vikings rock and you do look very cool in your kit but being the competitive girlcat I am I still have to say that the Colts rock more. I think we may have a friendly battle on our hands. We had a big leaf drop over the weekend so I think autumn is well on its way hear in pommy land. FZ

Hooray! I am so glad you are going to follow American football. I hope your team does good. My team (the Miami Dolphins) is doing very, very poorly. So far they have lost 4 games in a row. And they have not won even a single game. I think the Cats are a much better team than the Dolphins.

Pablo, we need to find out your reason behind supporting the Minnesota Vikings! Do your humans have some affiliation with Minn? All of Wisconsin cheers for the Packers...well almost all, except those living right on the Wisc/Minn border who favor the Vikings, and the Wisc/Ill border who may be Bears fans.

Well, it's better than being a Packers fan. Packers fans are called "cheese heads," and how would you face your adoring public in one of those stupid cheese hats?

Thank you so much for your purrs and well-wishes. They mean so much -- I am a lucky Brainball to have such wonderful friends! I am happy to report that I'm feeling great today!
