By
Updated: December 9, 2013

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson keyed an excellent day for the NFC North in the Water Cooler Sports NFC North on South Fantasy Football Challenge.

Though the North had a higher possible score by 44 points, the North only bettered them by an average of 21 points: 59 points for the South, 80 for the North.

Too often this season watching the Bears comes with hours of wracked nerves before, during and after the games.

Only thing that would have made that article better is if the homeless guy would have given the food back to Burleson and said, "You need this more than me."

Yeah, but what is the definition of "this" in the scenario? If it means "an innate ability to fuck up their own well being" then I whole heartedly agree.

I liked the LOTR movies but the whole time I wanted to punch Elijah Wood in the dick for making such pussy faces all the time.
