You most definitly would enjoy training camp, I have been there for a couple years running now, and it is a great way to meet players, get autographs, this is especially good if you have kids, mine love it :). It was a little bit lacking without Randy this year, but still a ton of fun.

Thanks for the hospitality, It's nice that there is such a warm community here!

You're right ... it is a fun board. I just started posting a week or so ago and I'm enjoying the give-and-take very much.

I just looked at this part (the Bar) of the board a few nights ago, so I didn't see the invite to introduce oneself. I'm 42 and have been a Vikings fan since I was 8. Part of me is sorry I didn';t find this board sooner, and part of me is glad I didn't ... because I would have spent way too much time on it.

I guess I forgot to introduce myself as well.

I am 29 and live in Shakopee Minnesota. I am a computer programmer / web developer in Eagan MN. In my spare time I race R/C cars and trucks.
I am also getting into flying R/C aircraft as well (As soon as the snow melts).

I have been a Vikings fan all my life and will be for life!

Cool, Didn't know you lived out there. We go through there about once a year. The wife feels we need to visit the Casino once a year during Vikings season. :)

Welcome aboard.

I have a son-in-law who is nuts about the R/C planes, etc. It's an expensive hobby but a very cool one, I enjoy watching their construction and flight. He's also a pilot so it was a natural pick for him.

Shakopee is a nice place, an old town with a lot of history. I haven't been there in a while... should take a drive that way again.

Shakopee is a really growing fast. Both retail wise and residential. It is no longer just the small town with a horse race track and Valley Fair.

This weekend I just got back from racing R/C cars and trucks down in Fort Dodge IA. It was really a blast with 106 entries to race.

Hey all,

My name is Matt, I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, I am 24 years old, and grew up cheering for the Vikes.

I am a diehard Bombers fan, but I pull for the Vikes in the NFL.


There are a lot of similarities between Vikings fans, and Bomber fans, both great sets of fans.

Good luck in 06' 8)

Post I never did this
My name is Ken I have been a vikings for 15
years. Every year I get more and more into it.
Honestly I am not even sure why I became I vikings
fan. I live in Northern California and respected the niners of
old. I have always hated the Raiders with a passion. Raiders
fans are always talking to much and then not being able to
take it in return.

I guess I became a vikings fan becausee of Doleman and Randle
type guys. I really hated to see Brian Willams leave. I loved watching
Willams smack Keyshawn Johnson and flip him in the air in the opener
two years ago(I think?).

And Yes I have been here for a while but i wanted to introduce
myself anyways.

Hello Everybody, My name is Josh. I live in Prior Lake, Minnesota. I'm 25 years old. I've lived here my whole life and have been a Vikings fan since I can remember. I still have an Apex jacket from the early nineties LOL. Expensive little jacket. I've been reading this forum for a couple of months, and I finally got enough courage built up to join in. Look forward to meeting everybody on this board. SKOL VIKES!! Good Luck in 06.

Hi my name is Steve and I am 20 years old. I currently live in Fridley, Minnesota. I have been a Vikings fan for as long as I can remember. I go to college at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, a rough place to be a Vikings fan. I am a Criminal Justice major and I will be graduating in roughly 2008-2009. I am glad to be in a message board where I can boast/#### about the Vikings season.

Hi Steve, I'm glad you found our board, welcome aboard.

Sounds like you're in the midst of Packer country, must be difficult to not rub it in lately. :) I live near Taylors Falls, MN, on the border, and we have enough Packer fans to deal with... you have your hands full.

Hmm, a criminal justice major, I approve. :) What do you intend to do after college?

John

I'm not actually sure what I want to do after I graduate..... I have to get into some internship and decide when I get more into my CJ program. It is really rough not to rub it in, I did a lot last year and I got ripped on for not winning a super bowl......the one argument that Packer fans always bring up when they're losing a debate about football. I am currently living with 6 other hardcore Packer fans, which is going to either be the best time of my life if the Vikes win, or the worst if they lose.

Hello Viking fans!

I'm a born and raised Bermudian but a Viking at heart. This looks like a great site with cool people so I'll be here to check out the news and discussion and hopefully add something of value myself one day.

SKOL!!!!

Hey everyone!

First post - not really "new" to the board...I've been a lurker for a while. I read all I can about the Vikings (and you guys are the best!!).

I'm in Kansas (obviously - from my name - - which was selected before Pepper was traded....). I was born and raised here. I became a fan of the Vikings in the mid 1990's (it's a funny story - and I can say I was fan pre-Moss, though he was my first jersey).

I bleed purple - I'm also a HUGE Kansas State Wildcat Fan. I live and breathe football.

I'm married to a Chiefs/Packers fan. (Went to that Dec 03 game where we stomped the Chiefs....AWESOME!) Last year for the Monday night game he "surprised" me by showing up at the sports bar wearing a Favre jersey. He's lucky we have separate closets - there's no way I'm letting that thing near my Viking gear! (Actually, he's lucky I let it in the house!)

Anyway, I'm addicted to all things Vikings and I'm here all the time - though I may not post much. (I usually get a lot of flack for being a girl and try to talk football with the guys - oh, and they usually get mad when I beat them in Fantasy Football like I did last year....:wink:)
