Wow...sounds like it should be the theme song for a creepy children's show involving puppets.

Bill Simmons (the best writer ESPN has) wrote about the song in his conference championship picks. It's pretty funny:

Remember when I picked the Cardinals to make last year's Super Bowl simply because Kurt Warner's wife promised his kids a new puppy if they made it? When a Pakistani reader e-mailed me in all caps, "YOU CAN'T BET AGAINST GOD AND PUPPIES," that's all I needed to see. It was bigger than all of us. When Warner reneged on that promise during Super Bowl week, I still believe that's why Arizona lost.

Fast-forward to this week: When Brett Favre was singing the ridiculously enjoyable "Pants on the Ground" song from "American Idol" in a happy Vikings locker room last week, I had an epiphany: They'd sing it again in New Orleans, and then the "Pants on the Ground" guy would show up for the Super Bowl. I tried to shake it off. A few days later, Prince announced that he had written a Vikings fight song called "Purple and Gold," telling a TV station that it happened on Monday night because "I saw the future."

At this point, I was super-intrigued. The "Pants on the Ground" guy teaming up with Prince? The Vikings were suddenly unstoppable! This was bigger than all of us! I was ready to pick them for the upset ... and then ... well ... I heard the song. Are you kidding me? He could have changed the lyrics of "Darling Nikki" to "Darling Sidney" and it would have gotten the Vikes more fired up than "Purple and Gold." Quite simply, it's the worst sports song ever made by someone who actually has talent. Even worse, now he's stolen the "Pants on the Ground" guy's thunder and sent the Vikes back to square one, karmically. Not since "Under the Cherry Moon" has Prince been responsible for something this indefensible. I can't believe it. A feel-good Vikings season may have been derailed by a guy who's 5-foot-1 and probably can't throw a football 8 yards. You couldn't make this stuff up.

I think the Vikes gave that game away. The Saints didn't beat them, the Vikings beat themselves.

I think the Colts should do a good job at beating the Saints.

I agree that the Vikes didn't deserve to win that game, in fact I was even somewhat rooting for the Saints (I've liked Drew Brees since his college days). However, that pass interference call in OT really disturbed me. Its a shame that such a good game gets so influenced by poor officiating. Totally uncatchable with the receiver making a poor adjustment and falling down. Even the other pass interference where the reciever dropped the ball when he hit the ground was very questionable...sure there was some hand grabbing, but it did not change any momentum and he still was open, fielded the ball, and dropped it. Most of the time the refs let them play a little in OT as to not interfere with the game and overstep their place, but in this game it seemed the refs were set to make sure Favre didn't get his hands on the ball again.

And yeah, the Colts are going to beat the Saints. Peyton will be more patient and will not be throwing ints. The Jets defense was better than the Saints and their gameplan trying to pressure Manning and take away his two favorites receivers only worked for the first quarter. What can the Saints do differently to stop Manning? The Colts are also not so excited about being in the Super Bowl as they simply want to win. The Saints are going to have a much more difficult time staying focused for these next two weeks as they are giddy with the upset and the whole town of NO is going bonkers over them.

I will be rooting for the Saints though.

I heard they were going to actually replace a few of the members of the D-line with some of our "bears"

They were saving him from the embarassment of throwing yet another dumb interception at a crucial time.
