The Mad Scrambler

The football wielding fellow above is on Francis Tarkenton born this day 1940 in Richmond, Virginia. Considering what has happened to the (my) team that Fran quarterbacked to three Super Bowl (losses), today's post will be quite short. He was part of the reason that the Vikings reached three Super Bowls in the 1970's, and he was part of the reason they lost them. With this Sunday being a Super Bowls Sunday that should include the Vikings, I just can't write much more without breaking down into tears. So for at least getting my team to the Super Bowl, regardless of the result, Francis Tarkenton (February 3rd, 1940-present), you are my (162nd) hero of the day.
