Lol. I'm not sure but if you look back a ways at the first name basis thread, at one point we started calling everyone Brad.
The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2018

I now know my real name is Brad. It’s always troubled me that my birth certificate says Scott. I will have that nullified. I’m from western Michigan, longtime Lions fan, short term Redskins fan and now a full fledged
Vikings fan. Went to a game at US Bank last season. What an architectural masterpiece. Everything well thought out and world class. Planning on coming to a couple games this year. A KC fan who followed him from high school, MSU, Redskins and finally with the Vikings, a great organization. The fans are really passionate and here’s hoping we have a great year. I really enjoy the astute commentary from so many
knowledgeable posters. I hope I can contribute something intelligent once in a while. Thanks!

Welcome aboard Brad... I mean Scott... Argh! I mean Brad! Don't worry about that birth certificate thing, we wont hold a little thing like that against you. We usually understand why you wouldn't always want to be known as Brad.

Thanks for letting me join! I live in Minnesota, 56, and have seen every Superbowl we were in :cry: expect the first one against KC.

Love the Vikes and have NOT missed game since the early 70s that I can recall.

Hope we have a season.

Once again thank you for letting me be part of this forum!!

I , by the authority given to me by Ragnar, rescind your birth names and now deem you both Brad.
Viking nation is honored to bestow this tradition upon you, and know that the both of you will take pride in this re naming.
SKOL Brads!!!!
I just wanna die as a Super Bowl Champion Viking Fan!!

Realized just now I neglected posting any sort of hi/intro before I just started posting in threads.

Name is Isaac. I've been a Vikings fan since I was a kid, even though everyone in my family are either 49er or Raider fans. Being a kid of the Bay Area in the 80s almost everyone around me became 49er fans (friends and family), with some Raider ones sprinkled around. I don't like being like everyone else. One of my parents was born in Duluth, so I started adopting the Vikings as my team in the early 90s. John Randle won me over permanently.

Have enjoyed being able to chat with other Vikings fans during games & on the forums. I'm in Oklahoma now and most of the ones around here only were due to AD and have since reverted to being annoying Cowboy fans. Not sure how I hadn't found this forum before last year. Glad I have though.
