Following a scorching hot start to the season, the Vikings have cooled down considerably, dropping four of their last five contests. Sitting at 6-6, Minnesota hosts the rival Bears on Sunday in what may amount to a make-or-break game for their playoff hopes. Veteran linebacker Chad Greenway wants the home fans in full throat -- and two sheets to the wind. "We have to play accordingly and our fans have to show up accordingly, which we know they will," Greenway said, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "Hopefully, they're super- duper drunk. ...

If they do not want to, heck pay me the minimum salary and I will promise, and deliver, to never get arrested for drinking, chasing prostitutes, carousing, assaults you name it.
