Not Even Hockey Is Safe For Packers Fans Right Now

I absolutely love this. When your own team sucks—as the Vikings do—sports, in their infinite wisdom, offer you a consolation prize: exulting in the tears of your enemies. St. Paul native Ryan Rhody had seats behind the Wild's bench for last night's game, and so knew he'd end up on TV multiple times. So he whipped out a hastily made sign, with a delightfully simple message, and got joy from knowing that somewhere, there was a Packers fan made a little more cranky by being reminded of the pain of Sunday's brutal collapse. This is the gloriously childish essence of fandom.

"I hate the Packers fans more than anything," Rhody told the Star Tribune. Hate on, hater.
