Retailers of replica football jerseys are petty well convinced that the Christian Ponder era is over in Minnesota. A Twitter user was even able to find a Ponder jersey on sale for two dollars. Not a used Ponder jersey, a new Ponder jersey. It was $24 but now it can be yours for two bucks.
I’m pretty sure a totally blank jersey with no name or number is worth more than two dollars.
This probably feels like really mean piling-on, but I don’t care. It’s still funny.
Of course, we won’t be laughing if Matt Cassel gets hurt and Teddy Bridgewater struggles and Ponder is forced to come in and play.
There are people out there, believe me, who are convinced that everything is now set up for Ponder to wind up starting and leading the team on a playoff run. That’s what being a Vikings fan does to your brain. It makes you believe in weird, unlikely things.
