“How I Met Your Mother” Burns the Vikings

Even the writers of silly TV sitcoms know the Vikings had a terrible secondary last year.

Check out this burn on Monday night’s “How I Met Your Mother.”

Context for the clip: These two characters are spontaneously renewing their vows. For some reason. Don’t ask, I don’t watch the show.


Nice to know the Vikings’ defensive struggles have worked their way so deeply into the pop culture consciousness.

Don’t they know we have Mike Zimmer now???

Mike Zimmer will turn this thing around. No longer will geeky TV writers use the Vikings’ secondary as an easy punchline.

All right, post over. We can go back to not knowing this show even exists.

    this show is terrible,so it really means nothing anyways

  • Don Andrew Halvorson

    That episode is set in 2013. Zimmer don’t matter

  • Steve James

    Even if you’ve never watched this show, it’s pretty good and it has been long established that character is from Minnesota. They even went back and visited his goofy family once. Not a stretch to believe he’s still a Vikings fan living in NYC. I love his loyalty!! This is not a random shot at our beloved team. Relax.

    That character Marshall is a diehard Viking fan. There is an episode where he takes one of his friends to a Viking Bar in NYC… Its hilarious, and full uf real Viking history, They go into Anderson’s missed field goal in 98 and everything. You can tell one of the writers is a Vike fan. They even have another episode where he is tailgating at a Vikings game.
