    First Memory.....

    When I became a fan.......

    I remember it like it was yesterday. I was 7 years old when I heard my first viking game with my dad. We were driving to one of his friends house and it was snowing like crazy outside (Go figure...snow in Minnesota) and we were sitting outside his house wating for him to come outside. I was pretty bored so I decided to channel surf on the FM stations. I turned it to K102 and there it was, wating for my ears, the Minnesota Vikings playing the Chicago Bears. I had never heard or seen a game before because my mother wasnt into the sports scene when I lived with her. As I sat there in the car, watching the snow fall, I heard our running back run a long one into the endzone and my dad exploded with a cheer. At that moment in my life I realized that I was going to grow up loving the Minnesota Vikings. Ever since that day I have been a HUGE fan, loving every moment of Viking football. It has never been whether they won or lost, as long as they were on the radio, or even better, the television. I joined the Military when I was 18 and brought the Purple with me, with the NFL Sunday ticket. My Wife at the time hated it, but I didnt care, because every game I have watched or listened to since that day, has made me equally as excited to be a Minnesota Vikings fan.
    For my son's 3rd Christmas I broke down and bought him his first authentic Minnesota Vikings jersey. Even though it costed me a pretty penny, and the kid wouldnt have known the difference between real or fake, it was worth EVERY penny I spent. After that the little guy wore it every other day until the 84 washed off of the back.
    Much love to my Father, the greatest man I have evey met!
    Even though he is a fair weather fan..... :argue:

    you bought your son a piece of history::::

    #84 is my favorite player and someday if your son loves football as much as you he will be able to lookback at some of the highlight reels and realize what jersey he had..

    Moss forever....

    Oh yeah....Moss is the greatest WR to ever play. Some say that if you dont have people criticizing you, your not doing anything.
    Call me crazy, but I have a feeling he will come back once his contract is over with the Raiders.

    I believe that he really wanted in on a ring. They were a pretty good team that year and they just needed some help at WR.

    I wish he wouldn't have done that.

    I don't blame him for doing that, I just wish Dan "the Man" Marino would have played for us in 2000, we would have undoubtedly won the superbowl (well, not undoubtedly, but pretty close) with him at the reigns of that offense.
    I may be an a$$, but at least I m a smart one
