I've been keeping here for a while and recounted it was time to say hello.

I stayed watching NFL around 94/95 and been an acid fan of The Cure I just had to follow the team with Robert Smith in the backfield. The decision made easier being a rabid Replacements and Husker Du fan.

There had been a few times I wish I hadn't hitched my flag to that purple mast but wish it's life as a sports fan.

I look forward to some quality football discussion /debate /argument with you fine people.

I should really pay more attention to the old autocorrect. Honest, I'm not a modern [emoji16]

hello, I'm Perry.
i'm 53. I cant say I'm a hardcore long term Vikings fan exclusively. I'm a NFL/sports fan as a whole. But the Vikings are a favorite as opposed to the Pats or Seahawks lol. I was originally a Harold Jackson fan on the Rams. And/but he did get signed by Vikings if only for a moment lol.
I hope not to offend and I will say here- I have watched sports since the 70s and over the last few years I am entirely convinced I am watching entertainment and not competition. So if my posts sound like I'm watching hulk Hogan win a match,youll know why.
its only sports, its not something that really matters.. like for instance I was in the hospital 3 days last week :( .
I dont worry about who wins or loses. Its just male bonding fun for me.
but I like the aesthetics of sports and uniform/helmet history. I like the old electric football game and still collect sports memorabilia.
thanks-

p.s. sorry, I dont mean to sound stuck up :D but Perry is far too unique a name to be changed to Brad. I apologize but I cant do it!
:smilevike: please forgive me :bowdown:
