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.

Hello everyone!

I'm new to *this* site but I'm definitely not new to blogging. I was one of the top posters on "WeAreVikingsFans.com" before that ended--and I was also one of the top posters on Vikings.com's message board--before that shut down just a week or so ago. Not sure why they keep randomly shutting down, but here I am to check this site out. It looks to be pretty solid--and it seems to be getting more hits than the Vikings.com message board--so that's pretty cool.

Anyway, have other people come over from WAVF or Vikings.com?

I see that! Seems to be pretty active, and I can tell by the "post count" by a lot of people, that people really stick around here. That is good to see.

Great! Because I'm pretty "lively" myself. I'm probably known as a "bit of an @$$hole." That is life. When you spend 5 years blogging and going head-to-head off and on with some vicious people--I suppose that happens. :)

I was really, really active on WAVF and Vikings.com--but I'm going to try to get away from it a bit. I think I was fairly obsessive about it. You know how people are about Facebook? I suppose I was that way with Vikings blogging. I need to take a bit of a break. I do like this site so far, though.

New to the site... so I would like my first ever post to be:

Packers suck, Aaron Rodgers is a girl with a mustache engaged to Clay Mathews.
Bears suck, Cutler is garbage along with every other player on their team.
Lions suck, who cares about them.

P.S. I still hate the Falcons and Saints :)

SKOL VIKINGS!

I dont think I properly introduce myself to this board. Im from WeAreVikingsFans.com, I was under the username KingJames. Then after that site shut down I venture to the message board on the official Vikings.com website under my current username JEC334. JEC is the initials of my full name. And 334 is the area code in which I live in.

To tell you a little bit about myself I am 21, in college at Alabama State University. The same college that Tarvaris Jackson went to school at. Im majoring in Computer Science. I plan to move to Minnesota once I finish college. I wanna stay close to the Vikings so I can attend games on Sundays. :rock:
