    Re: Funny story about Facebook, me and the Vikes

    Man, thats just some great news you recieved Skum.
    I think it's a class act the way the Vikings Office handled it also.
    They could have just bullied you out of your facebook spot.
    Instead, they treated you with respect and reward.
    Great job to both of you!
    Thanks for sharing that also.

    Well they'd better start reading my posts

    They actually do.
    I am working something for a member on this site and a post of mine, followed by a PM,
    actually got me in touch with a Mr. Brad Madson.

    I was pretty impressed with the actions todate.
    Even had a nice call (vox mail) from Mr. Madson.

    More to follow.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    So, long time ago i created a fan-page for the Minnesota Vikings on facebook

    So everyone who actually clicked "Become a fan" on the Minnesota Vikings page on facebook would know what im talking about.

    Well as i said i created it sometime ago, a couple of days ago i got a message from Facebook that i had violated some terms when i created the page, because i wasnt an official representative of the Minnesota Vikings, with other words, the Vikings had claimed the page to be theirs by contacting facebook..

    Meanwhile there was a note from a vikings representative called Erin Swartz, her job title states "Marketing Manager- Branding & Promotions"

    The Vikings wanted to send me an authentic and signed Adrian Peterson jersey.

    Then i send an e-mail back that i was very happy about that and explained my story about while being from Denmark i took the trip last year to watch the Vikings - Packers game at the dome and i would likely go again this year.

    They then e-mailed me back that they would like to offer me tickets to the Packers game at home and that i had to e-mail them back, come July - if i could make the trip and such.

    What a great thing, i now love my Vikings even more.
    Skum. Ask for a VIP field pass for the pre-game warm ups.They should get you one or two.
    I had one last year for the Colts game. They let you go down and stand on the sidelines until 35 minutes before game time.
    You are down close to the players when they do their warm ups. Ragnar, and some cheerleaders usually hang around there and circulate through the crowd.
    It's pretty cool.

    BTW, it was great to meet you last year. I will see you again at the Green Bay game.
    I'm from a foreign country called Nebraska !
