Minnesota Vikings 24, San Francisco 49ers 13. What?.. The 49ers are probably the best team in the NFL this year, and the Vikings are still limping from a 3-13 record last season. So it's an unexpectedly happy day for Vikings fans here in Minneapolis. That's the thing about football. On any given day, any team can beat any team, and it's possible to overcome enormous odds.
We go from watching a great football game to seeing a play tonight at the Guthrie Theater, which is just five or six blocks from the Metrodome where the 49ers sucked today. The play is Christopher Hampton's Tales from Hollywood. I'll tell you more about that after we see it.
A couple nights ago, we (along with James and his friend Emma) went to see a classic play, Waiting for Godot, at the Jungle Theater. You can always count on the Jungle to do a great production, even though that theater is just a fraction the size of the Guthrie.
That's the great thing about living in the Twin Cities: lots of choices for whatever you like.
