NY Giants stuck in KC on their way to play the Vikings.
The Vikings and Giants are supposed to play Sunday for the ninth time in the last 10 regular seasons, a scheduling quirk that has slated seven of those meetings -- this year would be three in a row -- for Minnesota.

With more than a foot of blowing snow falling in the Twin Cities area Saturday, the Giants' charter flight was forced to land in Kansas City instead. The team settled in to spend the night there, with a plan in place to fly to Minnesota on Sunday morning and make it to the stadium in time for regularly scheduled kickoff at 1 p.m. EST.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in an e-mail Saturday evening that the game would be moved back if conditions in the Twin Cities further delayed the Giants' journey.

"We continue to closely monitor the weather in Minneapolis and remain in regular contact with both clubs and local public safety authorities," Aiello said. "We will continue to do so and are prepared to make adjustments in the schedule as necessary."

According to Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon on Twitter, the team was scheduled for a 6 a.m. CST wakeup call Sunday in Kansas City followed by an 8 a.m. flight and a 9 a.m. arrival in Minneapolis.

1. It's called a blizzard thing, mad.
I don't see how they play that game tomorrow.

2. No Shit, Sherlock! We had THREE of those fuckers last winter, here!
Imagine an SEC team trying to play a game in that for that National Championship. Too bad we don't have BossHog to bust on about this!
