This is their latest hype video. Just file it away along with Prince’s 2009 crap-o-rama “Purple and Gold” and that Blur cover video trainwreck they got amped up about. :covri:

Lord, send these people some hot sauce or something

It is both funny and tragic at the same time. But if you have ever spent time in Minnesota, you would readily have a context for it. I could not understand the Prince fight song prior to spending significant time in the Twin Cities area. There is a heavy influence of Scandinavian culture in Minnesota and people are generally very nice. It is not quite Canada but it is very close. In fact, many of the locals refer to their habits as "Minnesota nice" though sometimes in self-deprecating fashion some refer to it as "Minne-sorta nice." Either way, the people in Minnesota have strange ways about them that actually can be delightful. People are very accommodating and courteous--sometimes to a fault and it heavily influences their interactions and how they present themselves. To come off as too confrontational would, to many there, seem uncouth and unkind. That is not to suggest that there aren't exceptions--indeed there are plenty. But I do not think I can think of another state within the contiguous United States where people will go out of their way not to offend others. Heck, you'll see a single line of cars backed up on the highway at an exit while the other lanes are free and clear because on driver would dare jump ahead; instead, you show courtesy to your fellow Minnesotan and you wait your So as much as I can laugh at the video, I would imagine that for the persons who were responsible for putting it together that was about as far as they were willing to go without coming off belligerent or brassy.
Yes, soooo true. I spent a week there last spring and I kept texting my wife - “these people are precious!!”

- the city metro rail is on the honor system

- everyone says “Jeez” instead of cursing (it’s like a city full of Mortys)

- I watched a five minute piece on the local news about what happens to the sandbags after they’re done using them in the spring flood season (because they got a bunch of requests from viewers who wanted to know)

Lovely people in all honesty, but straight laced as you’ll ever see.

Now that makes me not want to see it.........:eek:
If you have never seen "Ram It!", it's almost obligatory to watch during Rams week. Watching it is kind of like participating in the Shellback Ceremony in the Navy. Sure it's bad. Sure it's disturbing - but it's a rite of passage!

I could understand some child-like fan posting that video clip, but I'm almost in disbelief that it was tweeted by the organization itself. Is Richie Rich running that place? :scratch:

The Prince "Purple and Gold" song was truly abysmal. And I LOVE Prince. I remember listening to it and thinking "How did the guy who wrote and sang 'Let's Go Crazy' make THAT in an effort to get fans hyped up?"

'Let's Go Crazy' would really have made a better hype song. Change a few lyrics and that song would move the team & the whole stadium!

At least it was short. Skol.
