Remarkably similar to fiction…
Watching the Dallas Cowboys take a late fourth quarter lead (8 points, 17-9) in Minnesota against the Vikings instantly made me think of the frustrated home fans. More specifically, the stunned Viking fans instantly made me think of the most famous (albeit pretend) die-hard Vikings fan who was always accustomed to heartbreak as a citizen of Minneapolis.
Some people laugh at characters, situations and goofy storylines in sitcoms as mere foolish fiction with no basis in reality. However, as the clip above proved, TV and film has a strange power of being surprisingly prescient to future events (to varying degrees).
Just ask the Chicago Cubs and the writers of Back to the Future Part II.
Final Score: Dallas Cowboys 17 -15 Minnesota Vikings in Minneapolis.
