There’s stupid.

There’s Love Boat stupid.

And then there’s this.

It’s not like the Minnesota Vikings organization doesn’t have enough strikes against it already – terrible weather, an awful stadium, a clueless head coach. But now they’re the team that fines you for going to your grandmother’s funeral.

I’m sure that will be a big part of their sales pitch to free agents in the offseason:

\”It\’s 45 below here, we play on concrete floors under a huge trash bag ceiling, our coach has more mustache than brain and we\’ve shut down our employee sex boat daytrip program. Oh, and if someone in your family dies don\’t even think about paying your respects or it will cost you a game check. So would you like to sign with us for five years or six?\”

Karmic justice demands the Packers win on Sunday by at least 3 touchdowns.

SATURDAY UPDATE: The awesome power of Atomic Trousers strikes again. The Vikings are giving Troy Williamson back his game check.
