Many of us go by our usernames on here but I figured we could be more formally introduced in this thread. I mean we are all one big Vikings family after all, we should at least know each others first name :) Plus it might make it a little easier when addressing specific people on here.

I'm Mike by the way

Michael was the most popular American male baby name from 1954 to 1997 with the exception of 1960 when it was bumped to 2nd place in favor of David.

So we shouldn't be surprised at all the Mikes :)

Tim. I've been around since the usenet days too... I like to play Pick 4 and only missed this year 'cause of all the Peterson drama. (I thought it was cancelled -- but I see it wasn't). Kinda dropped out of the regular conversation after the Championship game fiasco in New Orleans (too much pain) but I lurk every year. Kinda nice to chat again... but I wish this year hadn't been such a downer. I enjoy your takes when you aren't calling each other four letter names... :wink: (And I don't mean "Mike").

Edit: guess I should have said Mike 8)
This reminds me of the Monty Python "Bruce" skit: "Landon? That'll confuse things a bit. Mind if we call you Mike?" (In the skit - for those who don't know - the "new guy" is Michael if you enjoy those kind of ironic twists :wink: )

Sorry guys I've been busy the past few days. I have updated all the names in the original post and just put them in alphabetical order by username so it's a little easier to track

Dan.

Been a fan of this Team since, 2001. Most hated Teams? Our Division, Saints, Cowboys, Patriots, and Packers again just for emphasis.
