Nostradamus Quatrains And The 2018 Vikings

In our spare time here at the Grassy Knoll Institute (And we have plenty of that) we like to dig into the Nostradamus quatrains and attempt to decipher their meanings. One particular quatrain has once again garnered our full attention as we now believe it pertains to the Minnesota Viking football team.

Not like that last Nostradamus Quatrain we unsuccessully decifered in 2009 claiming the Vikings winning the superbowl. (We were damn close, but alas, no cigar) We found a Quatrain that looks ahead to the year 2018. This is what intrigued us. We will let you, the reader, decide.

Who was Nostradamus? Nostradamus was a 16th century prophet and astrologer who supposedly foresaw the future of the world. His technique used was a form of meditation where at night, he would sit alone peering into his brass tripod that was centered with a flame. His claim to fame was his prophecies of the first and second world wars, Hitler and his regime, the Kennedy brothers assassinations, Napoleon and his battle at Waterloo, the World Trade Towers, the coming of the Anti-Christ, and now, the Minnesota Vikings.

Nostradamus mixed his prophecies and quatrains to confuse the reader of when events would take place. We found the following quatrain here.


Century 20 - Quatrain 18
The ram, eagle, and boar unite in the new fortress,
Casualties extend until the lion rests in zenith.
The one eyed man hard at work,
The hungered wolf is not denied.

Line One: 
The ram, eagle, and boar unite in the new fortress,
When you look at this sentence and view it in a football related sense, it describes Sam Bradford.
Bradford was drafted in 2010 by the Rams, traded to the Eagles, and again traded to the Vikings a week before the 2016 season began. We can easily see the RAM and EAGLE mentioned directly in the quatrain but the boar had us intrigued. Lets break the word boar down. Stay with us here. The first letter "B" we believe denotes the quaterbacks name, Bradford. The rest of the letters to the word "Boar" are o..a..r... As in a Viking oar. Put it together and you got BOAR.

The second part of the first sentence, unite in the new fortress, well, I think all Viking fans know what that means. The Vikings moved into a new stadium in 2016 (New fortress) where they will do battle with the ram, eagle, lion, etc. To a 16th century man, Nostradamus would only be able to comprehend this vast architectaul struture and what transpires inside it as a fortress.

Line Two:
Casualties extend until the lion rests in zenith.
The first word in this quatrain line, "Casualties". Lets delve into this word.
The casualties Nostradamus foresaw can only be the injuries incurred to the Vikings players. From Teddy Bridgewater, Adrain Peterson, to the enire offensive line. Add in half a dozen defensive lineman, linebackers, corners, safeties, special teams. All positions have been affected in the 2016 season. The Vikings were poised to make a solid run at the Super bowl only to be relegated to the walking wounded. Let us not forget OC Norv Turner quit, and would be considered a casualty as well as head coach Mike Zimmer, who had missed time.

The second part of the of the quatrain line, "extend until the lion rests in zenith." is a telling sign. The Zodiac dates for the Lion "Leo" is July 23rd through august 22nd. The Vikings injuries began with Bridgewater, right after the zenith, (The height of) the Lion, (Leo) Therefore, with the added word "Extend" could only mean that Nostradamus saw the injuries continue to occur until the next year, when once again the Lion was in its Zenith. Coincidentally, that is the end of training camp 2017.

Line Three:
The one eyed man hard at work,
Up until just the last several weeks, we could not decipher this quatrain line. Did this line refer to a pirate of the high sea's? Eric The Red? A deck of playing cards? Or perhaps, coach Zimmer? We can all agree that Zimmer is a hard working coach. He puts in the time and energy and expects his players to follow his example. When it was announced that Coach Zimmer was undergoing his eighth surgery in his right eye just before the start of OTA's, excuse the pun, but this quatrain line came into focus. Indeed,  the hard working one eyed man can only be Mike Zimmer.

Line Four:
The hungered wolf is not denied.
As with the third quatrain line, this fourth line also took time to understand. The hungered wolf is not a phrase associated at all with the Vikings. Until you look deeper into the ownership of the team. Zygi Wilf purchased the team and spared no expense adding high priced players and a quality coaching staff and funding a 1.1 billion dollar stadium complex for the Vikings to call home. When you look at the word wolf in the Quatrain, it is but a mere letter away from Wilf. It has been established that over the 500 years since Nostradamus wrote his quatrains of the future, translations have sometimes faltered from the original  French language to the translated English language. One vowel is not uncommon for many of the quatrains of the centuries.

Now that we have established the wolf is in reality Wilf, we must complete the interpretation of the final line. Zygi Wilf is certainly hungry for a championship in Minnesota. His money has been well spent and he now awaits the fruition of his dream. A Superbowl Victory! The wolf is not denied can only mean that Wilf realizes his goal. But alas, when will his dream come true? We can only speculate that it will be in the year 2018, when the Superbowl will be hosted by U.S. Bank Stadium, the home of the Minnesota Vikings.

In essence, this quatrain reveals severe injury to the Minnesota Vikings. These injuries will last the entirity of 2016 and regress in late August at the Zenith of zodiac symbol Leo the lion which is late August. Just in time for the 2017 season.


SKOL VIKINGS!

  1. According to Zimmer, he may just be one eyed. Reading his interview, he is not confident in the surgeries.

  2. You came close on the 2009 Quatrain, and now you have a shot at this one. Home field advantage for the superbowl, no team ever had it.

    1. I did not come close, Nostradamus did. But this time, I believe we have it right.
