The football fan in me is just too dead at this point to root for some new team, if we were ever to attract one.
You and me are on opposite sides of that, the 98-99 NFC championship game and the heart-breaking defeat is what sealed my fandom to the Vikings.

And I'm too big a fan to just stop watching football.
