Post subject:  Introductions - if you're new, say hello here

There was a recent suggestion that we needed a place for new members to post an introduction and say hello. A good suggestion, and this is now the place. :)

What a privilege, nay, HONOR to be the first person to post an introduction in the official "Intoduction" thread!!!

Just amazing!!

Anyhoo, my name is Christian, i'm 23, live in Burnsville, work in Bloomington. I've only been in the Cities for 1 year. I moved up here after living in Austin, MN for a vast majority of my life. I worked at KAAL TV for about 5 years before getting canned. I got to see the vikings play the niners several years ago from the sidelines with my press pass! Totally awesome!! You dont know loud until you're down on the field during a game!! Holy Crap!!!! I got to see my (at the time) hero, John Randle make his first (and only) interception. I wasn't a REAL big vikings fan until this year. Somthing clicked in me and now i'm as diehard as they come. My father is a hardcore fan. I learned most of my vocabulary during those late-80's early-mid 90's sundays!!!

Anyhoo, I'm glad to be here, you all seem like a bunch of knowlegeable rubes (ok, i listen to the fan... can you blame me?) and i hope to learn as well as teach!!

GO PURPLE!!

Welcome to the board Swaps, and thanks for taking the time to stop here and say hello.

You're now in the midst of one of the largest groups of hardcore Vikings fans online. In other words, you're among friends. :wink:

You lucky Dog you. Johnny is one of my favorite Vikings and it would have been fantastic to see that from the sidelines.

Isn't that the truth. This has been one of the best off-seasons for the Vikings that I can remember. There has been signings or new owners or something going on constantly. I'm hoping the regular season is also one of the best we've had for a while.

Very cool!!!

I would love to take a trip to the UK. A good friend of mine was stationed at a USAF base in England. Lakenheath I believe. He had a pretty good time, but he complained about the rain a lot.

Hi to all. While I'm not a Vikings fan (true to my Cowboys), I am on the edge of Vikings country and a die hard Twins fan, so hopefully that'll lead to some discussion.

I'll pop in here from time to time, but if any of you want to come over to cowboyscentral.com and talk shop we'd be happy to have you there as well. 8)

:welcome to the board my man. I may indeed drop over as I try and keep tabs on our own Terrence Newman as much as possible. The Boys should have an improved D this year too.

Welcome to the board! It's great to hear from Vikings fans outside the U.S. and you're brave to visit Minnesota in December... the beer will help. :) I hope you'll join all the discussions here that interest you, and, if nothing else, I'd love to hear a report on your visit later this year.

Hello Macvike. Good to have you here. We have several other fans from across the ocean that should be close by you. If you are going to a December game, then one of them may be the Steelers game. We'll be there. Hope you have a great time while over here too.

Good to have you here Chris. Do you get many of the Vikes games down there with the Jags being the local team? We usually have to battle the Chiefs, Cowboys, or Rams for air time here, so I end up going to the sports bar.

How old of Chrysler are we talking here? I used to love the old Super Bee's.

Post subject: 

Thanks for the welcome.

Belive it or not,we do get a few good games,usually if the Vikings are playing a southern team. The Jags are always on a local channel,unless it's blacked out,which happened quite a bit last season.

How old of a muscle car?? I have a 70 Road Runner and a 71 Dodge Demon that I drag race.That's where my head is at.

That's about right. I graduated high school in 71!

My older brother had a Super Bee 6 pack (Dodge, Plymouth?) I wasn't into those cars. But he tinkered with it for months and it was no longer street legal - he sold it to a drag racing team and drove it once. I think he said it was near 500 HP when he was done but he couldn't afford to keep it. He has always been into drag racing.

:read: SITTING in my garage.

half the engine is tore apart. :( I havn't drivin it since May I believe. :(

BUT SOON!!!!

There is a car show in a couple weeks. Hopfully my roommate and I will get it running by then. He got his '68 Chevelle running last week. He built and dropped a 496ci Big Block into that. Pushing 680HP!!! HOLY CRAP! And that is BEFORE his nitrous bottles!! (he drag races... I cruise... BIG difference) I should have only about 350-375hp, once its running agian.

That 'Vette is a sweet ride!! :thumb:

The Road Runner is all apart as it's getting new paint. My Dad bought it brand new after a tour in 'Nam,and he's been after me to "git it done".The Demon we saved from the crusher,and put in a 383 big block.It's a mild pump gas engine,but the car runs 11.60's all day in the Florida heat.It's a drag race only ride.

I'm mainly into Mopar,but in reality I like all cars.If it catches my eye,then I'm into it.

Hey, my name is Jon and I just joined the board. Looks good so far. Here is a little about myself: I am 34, live in South St Paul with my wife and 2-1/2 year old twin girls. I grew up in Bloomington and went to Jefferson. Went to School with a few old Viking's kids such as Bill Brown and Jim Marshall. Well that's about all for now, look forward to talking purple.

Have a good one - Jon
