While watching the Vikings-Packers game today and surfing around BGG this thought popped into my head. What if our favorite sports teams were board games, what games would they be?

Being a Vikings fan is a little like playing Pandemic. The game starts off optimistic and you think you can manage and keep the spread of the disaster under control. But then you find yourself in the wrong place and the wrong time leading to an outbreak (opponent score) which leads to a cascading chain reaction of equally bad events. Then miraculously you start to see a way to get things under control and the optimism sneaks back in, only to be shattered by en epic screw up.

The game ends and you vow to learn from your mistakes and take a different approach next time...

In which you try to get Derrick Rose through the NBA season uninjured.
Like Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, you wonder if Derrick is actually injured or just trying to be inefficient to doom the team.
