Brett Favre's "Pants on the Ground"

Following their Sunday night win, Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings' spirits were high and their pants were on the ground. Not literally of course, but in the celebratory sense.

After the men in purple knocked Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys out of contention for the Super Bowl, quarterback Favre led his team in a version of General Larry Platt's "American Idol" viral hit "Pants on the Ground" in the locker room.

The song was caught on camera and has now become a viral hit of its own. Favre, the 40-year-old comeback kid, even turned his hat sideways when the song required it.

    Watching Jerry Jones stomp the sidelines near the end of the game Sunday was nealy as much fun as watching Fox News, election night 2006, as the Democrats took control of both houses...

    What's so childish about it? It a parody of a song, for goodness' sake - a silly song at that. So he was happy aboout winning? What was he supposed to do? Would you have preferred him to say a prayer or something? You people need to learn how you lighten up and laugh a bit more.

    Brett can do whatever he wants as far as I am concerned. He knocked out the most despised team in professional sports and that makes him a hero. All he needs to do now is choke and allow the New Orleans Saints to assume their rightful position on top of the football world.

    The one good thing about this video is that it should *kill* this song.

    insecure? sure, they played poorly at the end of the season and had to exorcise some demons. now they are ready to bash the saints in the mouth. and "childish behavior"? what? like running down the field and jumping up and down when he throws a touchdown? that's just some green bay sour grapes.

    He dropped his pants when he threw a TD on 4th and 3 with 2 minutes to play. Nobody else throws that pass. Nobody else is as insecure.

    With all of the strutting and high five celebrations by the Dallas Cowboys, it was entirely refreshing to see the Purple People Eating Minnesota Vikings take the Cowboys behind the woodshed and stomp them totally into the ground. I could hear cheering across the State Line as the Vikings beat up the Cowboys until the Cowboys antics and spirit was entirely dissipated like a bad smelling cloud.
