and the darn guy stayed for 3 weeks; mooching our food, watching our TV, teaching our dog stupid tricks. We didn't want him there, but at least he wasn't a complete jerk while doing so.
To be honest, when the Vikings were relevant (the playoff run) I didn't mind our two Viking cousins visiting. It was somewhat interesting banter. But now, they are simply goading us on and being obnoxious. I have them on ignore and I still can't avoid them (other people quote them or their snide comments show up on the side bar). I wish we still had the "poll question" feature because I really want to know who else is to the boiling point like me. I'm as thick skinned as the next guy, but this is just getting stupid. I know that if we ignore them they might go away....but isn't there a more certain way to get rid of them.
By the way, my cousin eventually left to take a job at the local broiler (chicken) plant. He lasted two weeks there then developed some sort of poultry related illness. He moved in with some other relative on the other side of the state and we never heard from him again.
