History strongly favors the number 1 seed in the conference championship game. History also probably doesn't factor in the number 1 seed playing with their number 2 quarterback. Weather looks favorable. Still, i imagine a defensive slanted battle. 13-10 Eagles. Or 13-10 Vikings. Either way, the Final score will be 13-10.

While I'm not necessarily rooting against the Vikings in this game, and while i generally have a slightly unhealthy and unjustified disdain for Philadelphia sports, it's hard for me to root against Dougie P, aka Hollywood Doug Pederson (my nickname for him).

Here's an article-length collection of thoughts that are kind of rough drafty, and slightly rushed, so I'll just submit them as a comment.

As a Vikings fan, I'm happy just to be here. Shhhh, don't tell the gatekeepers of sportsy attitudes I said that. They might think it means that I wouldn't mind losing this game. I certainly would mind. I'd be quite disappointed. But I do think the prevailing wisdom around this “happy just to be here” idea could use a little pushback. I understand the need to fight complacency, but a “championship or bust” attitude toward sports is a certain recipe for a miserable existence. Especially as a fan, whose attitude has no significant effect on the behavior of the players or team. Indeed, my complacency, real or perceived, poses no real threat to team success. It's really one of the great benefits of being a fan. Just as we are under no obligation to endure the physical rigors of training camp, practices, and games, we can also leave the mental fight to the players and coaches who are responsible for the games’ outcome.
Our role is different. We are fans. Observers. We invest time and energy, but we do so, ultimately, as a means to an end. And the end isn't wins or championships. Really, it's not. In short, we do it for pleasure. The pleasure of wins and championships, sure, if we are lucky, but more so the pleasure of leisure, camaraderie, a three hour break from the daily grind of “real life”, or whatever it is that drew us to sports originally and whatever it is that keeps us coming back. Believe it or not, sports are meant to be enjoyed. Part of that is the struggle and the disappointment. Those things do play a role. I'm not telling you to ignore the bad and just be happy all the time. But the disappointment needs to be in context. It needs to be weighed against the overall happiness you get along the way, just from mere participation in this weird ritual of fandom. If that happiness doesn't outweigh the heartache, you might want to rethink how you're doing it.
So on the eve of this penultimate game of the year, I submit to all fans, but particularly to Vikings fans, that we should enjoy the crap out of the incremental successes our team achieves, even if they get stopped just short of a championship. If any game shows us that, it should be the most recent one. The Diggs touchdown brought a kind of elation that heretofore was unknown to most Vikings fans. Sure, I'd like to build on that, but don't even try to tell me that this season wasn't awesome if we lose this game. This season was amazing and loads of fun, and that won't be erased, even if we go 41-donut in Philly.

Happy just to be here? You better believe I am.

Even as a fan of a team that has won 2 Super Bowls in my lifetime I couldn’t agree more with this sentiment. The Packers have suffered their fair share of gut-wrenching losses. And, as a Brewer fan I don’t have to remind anyone how they’ve fared in my lifetime. The 2011 division series victory was the most exciting professional sports moment of my life. Sports, at its best, is fun, and that’s what I care about most.
