I was so glad I saw the ending to the Vikings game; fishing contest clarify

Where were you when “the catch” took place? Wow, how many times will that question be asked over the years to come?  We, as many of you did, watched the Vikings game at home on Sunday.  Typical Vikes game, build us up only to let us down.  We were so close and then the Saints kicked that field goal.  All was pretty much over.  Being the fair weather fan that I am, I had to remove myself from the room.  
My son kept asking my wife and I why we were getting so worked up over the game. He has no idea what we (and many of you) have been through over the years. He wasn’t there in 1998 when it was a guarantee the Vikes would make the Super Bowl - heck, we scored 96 points a game.  Then there was 2001 when the Vikes were awesome once again, and how did that end? 41 doughnut.  Time after time - kicked in the stomach. Yet there we sit the next year in front of the TV watching every Sunday in the fall.  I wouldn’t say I bleed purple, but my blood does have a tinge of purple in it.
