Everson Griffen’s look on the sidelines following the Vikings’ last-second loss on a safety Dec. 21 in Miami pretty much says it all. A core of Vikings fans can relate to the so-close, yet-so-far-away theme. Since 1978, the team has lost five NFC Championship games, with two settled on field goals in overtime. Each loss has cost the team and its fans a trip to the Super Bowl. REUTERS

If you want to know whether TV prices drop after the Super Bowl, you will have to see for yourself. “(It’s) hard to predict,” Okuly said. “I’ve heard it both ways. I don’t see how prices can go much lower.” (TRIBUNE/Rand Middleton)
