The Real Reason Favre Threw the Pick

The Artist Formerly Known as the Artist Formerly Known as Prince was so inspired by the Vikings' use of purple that he penned a new fight song for the now relaxing/aching Vikings. The result: six turnovers and a whole bunch of extra fumbles for good measure.

Not sure about you guys, but I've never heard a tune that made me want to jump more into battle... or throw myself on my own sword. With this song, the entire A-Side of Purple Rain* has been permanently erased from my mind.

*Please note: An A-side is an allusion to an archaic form of music known as a vinyl record.

What is this strange "vinyl record" of which you speak? How does a digital music file have two sides?

I heard they have MP3s on wax cylinders now

Erotic City is my favorite Prince song - lots of funkin going on in that one
