1.) We've been playing really well during the day and wouldn't want anything to fuck that up. Yes, I'm superstitious that way.
2.) It's a road game in a cold weather city and, as you may or may not know, it gets colder at night than in the day. Now we may have proven that we can handle anything after that KC ball shrinking chill, but we can use all the help we can get.
3.) Less hype means less pressure. Bottom line, I didn't want this thing to turn into a cumfest for Favre as he always seems to get when he plays on national games. Plus he always seems to pull miracles out of his ass when he plays national games and when he knows John Madden is watching because it means a happy ending after his post-game massage.
Besides, I don't think I could handle waiting all damn day for the 8:15 kickoff. People could get hurt, animals could be maimed, the elderly could have their feelings hurt. Also, we win this thing, you'll have plenty of chances to see the Fins on TV then. Last, but not least, unless you're in prison, there has to be a bar somewhere in your town where you can watch the game. If you're a Mormon or a Jehovah's Witness and can't imbibe, then just order a 7UP or some shit. It's not that hard. Just stay away from the bar nuts (they have piss on them!). Hey, DRK found a way to watch the Fins in freakin' Canada. So, make it happen.
*UPDATE*: In all likelihood, the game will be moved from 1:00 to 4:00. Either way, it's still better than 8:15. Just sayin.
And Go Fins.
