Introductions - if you're new, say hello here

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.

Hey all,

I've posted on a few threads on the boards, but I just came across this one so I thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Tyler, I'm 22 years old, and as you can tell from my username I live near Atlanta. I've been a Vikings fan my whole life thanks to my dad who is from Bloomington. I watched football when I was young, but truly became a diehard fan watching the 1998 15-1 team. I absolutely loved Randy Moss and Cris Carter, and was pretty torn when the NFC Championship was the Vikings vs. the hometown Falcons. After that I've kept up with them all the time and always see the Vikings play when they come down to ATL. I'm a pretty big sports fan, I keep up with all the Minnesota teams (Wild, Twins, T'wolves, and Gophers), and just recently my roommates and I got Sunday Ticket so I get to watch every Vikings game now! I look forward to meeting and talking with all of you on these boards as it is very refreshing to talk to people who are fans of the Vikings and not the Falcons or *insert SEC team here*.

Hello all from Queens, NY. I became a Vikings fan when I worked for Target and all the Minnesota transplants were going nuts for Moss, Culpepper, Smith and Carter. I followed the team during that amazing but ultimately sad season. Since then I have been hooked. I hope to get to Minnesota to see a game in person.

Hey guys! I joined a bit before the Travaris Jackson Draft and so i've been here for a long time, i read alot and post little, but thats cause of time issues. I remember complaining of having to study for an AP exam during that draft, and some of the elder statesmen with words of encouragement...figured I'd give a quick update...I just started Med school a couple weeks ago. Not that anyone would remember, but there ya have it. Cheers! :v):

Hello,
Long time Viking fan, first time here.
I live south of the cities now, but hail from Indiana, having been born and raised in the Hoosier state. I've followed the Vikings since Fran's first tour of duty and Joe Kapp's days. I've bled purple ever since.
For some time, I've posted on the Pioneer Press Discussion Boards, but it has died down during the past year or so, and thought I'd throw in my lot here.
I look foward to discussing our team, and bantering about various topics with you.
