    That is why it sucks being a Viking fan and not living in Minnesota, if a football player comes to give out autographs in my area it is either a 49'r or a Raider,
    :sigh1: I know it sucks to be me. :sigh1:

    We had Ben Watson TE Patriots, and our very own Morten Andersen K (hopefully soon Falcons), here last week in some charity/ghetto event. Along with some NBA dude.

    This is how big it gets over here.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    One good thing about where I live is the fact that our High Schools mascote is the Vikings.

    The only NFL players who ever come here are Torry and Terrence holt because they are really into NC state university and contribute a lot with celebrity bowling and stuff. And the Jimmy V golf classic once a year but you only get to meet famous people if you're rich, in the game, or get lucky and happen to be sitting in the hotel lobby that MJ is staying in like me.
