Hi from Italy

Run into some old friends from another group or board? Want to do a little schmoozing, talk over old times? Or just some off topic stuff, then this is the place.

Hi from Italy

Post by MatteoSpace » Fri Apr 04, 2014 1:28 pm

Premise,
Sorry for my english (I might make some mistakes)

I'm Matteo, from Verona, Italy (city of Juliet & Romeo, Pandoro and Arena)
I'm a American Football & Vikings fan since the Week 17/NFC Playoff 2009

Why I chose to support the Vikings?...So many reasons! Love at first sight
Follow many the games at midnight, it's hard, but i love this team and this sport!

Unfortunately, I did not go to London for international series :cry: but (in future) i want to come to Minneapolis. Maybe 2018?

I read this forum for a long time, in Italy we are not so many(Vikings Fan) and so it is rare to find reviews and discussions (especially for draft prospect)

This year i have a lot of confidence for this team, i believe in Zimmer & Spielman and i hope in another a good draft.

See you soon, Skol Vikings!
Sorry for my english, i'm trying to learn it

Welcome to the board!!! Nice to have some international flavor on here... there are a few others as well.

That's cool.. 2009 was a cool year..

I have been watching since 90's

I went to the Monday night game
versus Green Bay in. 2009 we kicked
the Packers butts that year and swept
them.

I was bored of the soccer and i tried to watch other sport.
I have found in this sport a new passion.

Why i become a MN Vikings fan?
As I said above, so many reasons! Love at first sight (and it was a choice by instinct)

Because...
I love purple/blue with yellow (my bedroom is blue/yellow/purple and i support Hellas Verona and Fiorentina)
The most important player of Verona it's Preben Elkjaer, the Viking
I love landscapes of Minnesota (lake, rivers, ecc...)
I liked the history of name (and the logo)
For a episode from How I Met Your Mother
I don't like supporting the team most successful (I did not know that the Vikings came from a great season, that of 2009, but I had read the 0-4 record in Super Bowls)
I was impressed by Favre (during my first match, Giants@Vikings)

...and other things that I do not remember


I couldn't do better choice

That's fantastic. I had the great fortune of visiting your beautiful city many years ago. I hope for a long overdue return soon!

Minneapolis is a wonderful city. I would recommend a visit between May and late September. :) Perhaps September would be best so that you can attend a Vikings game. :smilevike: Welcome to the board once again.
