Vikings 0-2 After Losing Second Game of the Season, and the Baseball Hall of Fame Puts on Savannah Bananas Exhibit
The Minnesota Vikings have sustained their second loss in five days, after falling to the Philadelphia Eagles 34-28 yesterday. According to the Associated Press, only 31 of the 270 clubs (11.5%) that began a season 0-2 advanced to the playoffs since 1990. The article quotes Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins:
“Shot ourselves in the foot with the turnovers. Similar story now the first two weeks in that case. … Just difficult to win in this league when you lose the turnover battle by one, let alone by the margin we have lost it by, so we have to fix those mistakes and not let it continue.”
The AP also reports that the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, is opening an exhibit dedicated to the Savannah Bananas today. The Bananas were founded in 2016, and are an exhibition barnstorming team known for their wacky version of the game called “Banana Ball.” Bananas owner Jesse Cole told the AP:
“Banana Ball is bigger than we ever could’ve imagined. We have people traveling hundreds, even thousands of miles to our games, because they’re seeing something they’ve never seen before. It’s not traditional. It’s completely fun and entertaining.”
