And by "hates" I mean "hates that they love this crap ass team so much" like PJD does.
As some of you may know if you watch the greater sport of college football, ESPN's College Gameday Saturday morning show was in Fargo, North Dakota this last weekend because I don't know why. Couldn't make up an excuse to go cheer squad with Johnny Manziel in Aggie Land? Whatever, it doesn't matter. They were in Fargo and it actually ended up being worth it, because eagle eyed viewers learned that there are just as many people in Fargo that apparently are sick of the Vikings sucking it up, and of Christian Ponder at quarterback.
And of course with Gameday signs, we actually have proof! Here are some of our favorites.
"Samantha, Can Christian Even Pass the Salt?"
The beauty about this gameday sign was, as you could see in the banner, was the Christian Ponder's wife Samantha was actually in the foreground of this sign. Luckily, the salt sign was over her left shoulder, and we all know you ALWAYS throw the salt over your left shoulder.
"Samantha, We're Actually Excited to See a Ponder on the Field"
I think we can all agree with this sentiment, yes? Frankly, even if Christian was playing well (Hell, even if it was mediocre), I'd still rather spend time looking at his wife.
"CRAP ON ME SAM PONDER"
What else do you even say to this? I would pay to watch that.
Another sign I can neither confirm nor deny is real is below. There was no screen cap of it, but it was still funny:
I guess Jensen is Brock Jensen, the North Dakota quarterback? I should probably know this. I'm pretty sure he's probably beaten the Gophers, Kansas State, and the Vikings at this point. Maybe the purple can sign him?!
So good on you, North Dakota. You showed up well, even though you're basically even more Canada than Minnesota. Did we miss any Gameday Vikings signs? Share them in the comments.

Jolly hello to all Vikings fans across the pond, aye?
