MINNEAPOLIS - JANUARY 17: Percy Harvin #12 of the Minnesota Vikings looks on before playing against the Dallas Cowboys during the NFC Divisional Playoff Game at Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome on January 17, 2010 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)
Are we still talking about the Percy Harvin trade? No? Yes? It seems like we should be. It literally only happened, what, two weeks ago? That's not that long, but kind of seems like forever in 2013. I mean, I can't remember what Shirtless Viking I last gaped at, let alone what happened two weeks ago (just kidding, it was Shirtless Adrian Peterson). So I feel like we shouldn't cast aside our Harvin reactions just yet, especially since time and distance will always allow cooler heads to prevail. Right? Which is also why I find it odd that a Seahawks fan, at any point in the process of the Harvin trade, would be skeptical. But maybe I shouldn't, because a Seahawks fan made a cartoon video about the whole thing that all of a sudden puts doubts in MY mind about whether or not I would still want him on the Vikings. GET OUT OF MY HEAD! Courtesy of alleged Seahawks fan and YouTube video creator, Podiatry Avengar, comes the following video of an apparent Seahawks fan trying to talk themselves into the Percy Harvin trade. What? You're not convinced? That's crazy talk! ...... Well Christ, when you put it like that, yeah, it does sound kind of bad. And maybe that's the whole point of this Harvin trade. The return on our investment with him just wasn't great enough. Despite being a bona fide star in this league, he never really did the things which would elicit the kind of money Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald did, even though he was asking for it. So, the Vikings flip him for enough draft picks to fill Moses' ark, Greg Jennings (essentially), and about an extra $2.5 Million in cap space. BUH?! That still doesn't mean I have to like it. I liked cheering for Percy Harvin. A lot of people didn't. A lot of people thought he was an asshole on this team, a cancer, and that he had no respect. Personally, I like assholes on my teams. I love it when other people hate it. It would be a lot cooler if other people just hated us because we won all the time, but in lieu of that, I'll take people hating us because we have really talented players that they covet. But whatever. We have Greg Jennings and his broken leg, doe. And Jerome Simpson who still loves his weed, obviously, so expect plenty of John David Booty to be around. Really, it's like nothing has changed. [follow]
