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.

So here it goes. Hello from the UK my name is Sean.

Started watching football when I was younger 10 years plus ago but didn't have a team back then. Started to watch more and more and found that I started to follow the Vikings. Realized this when I started getting really peed off when we lost or played poorly.

Go to the International Series games every year at my home town Wembley and I really want to come over and see the Vikes at home one day.

I look forward to speaking to you all.

Welcome to the board, Sean. :govikes: :welcome :govikes:

Welcome Sean. I hope you enjoy posting on this board. I think you will find that this community is very passionate and one of the best (if not the best) internet message boards dedicated to an NFL team.

Based in Sydney AUS and need a place to talk Vikes. Most NFL fans over here are bandwagon supporters. Which means heaps of Giants, Pats & Niners.

I'll actually be coming across for the Vikes v Pack in Green Bay. Would love to tailgate, hit the beers and see it with other Vikes fans.

Cheers.
Dang son, I lived in Melbourne and then moved to Hobart prior to moving to Florida. Really miss Australia.
Glad to hear and will definitely be looking for ya

Hi there,

Vikings-Fans do live all over the world. I am from Germany and became a Football and Vikings-Fan 1998 (! :wallbang: )
Till 2006 I wasn't able to watch or read anything about the Vikings but the results. Since then I've watched every single game.

I have visited vikingsmessageboard enjoyed reading and change now to an active member.

I used to be an active player and played last in 2010.

New guy here. Been poking around and made a couple posts already. I was wondering if any one here is also a member of the Yahoo Groups Vikings list?

Hi to you all from the UK.
Name's Shaun.
First saw the Vikings on 20th. November 1983.
A weekly sports TV show broadcast an NFL game and I watched Minnesota beat Pittsburgh 17-14.
I've always played sports, through school and college, mainly soccer and rugby, but, from that moment I became a Vikings fan and, for over 30 years and from over 3000 miles away, have shared the good and bad times with you all (mainly bad), although coverage over here isn't great.
With half an hour to game time, I just hope this year we can discard the "nearly men" tag and make San Francisco in February.
Not the greatest of nights so far, with Carolina losing in Atlanta and Seattle beaten at home, but at least the Pack were well and truly whupped, just as I hope they will be next week.
SKOL.
Great to meet you all
Let's make 2016 a Purple New Year.

Hey all,
I'm a lifelong Vikes fan and have been reading here and a couple other places for years now. I recently registered so I could put Jordy on ignore, then decided i may as well spend some time spouting my opinion as well. All fun and games to me though.
'Nunin' was the name of a Norse raven and means memory.
