    For many Vikings fans, passion began in 1998

    [size=13pt]For many fans, passion for Vikings began in 1998[/size]

    For a generation of Vikings fans too young to have experienced the joy of reaching four Super Bowls or the sorrow of losing each one of them, there will always be 1998.

    For many fans, passion for Vikings began in 1998
    That was the year I got excited about football.
    I was 10 years old, been hooked on the Purple ever since

    The agony of defeat was so vivid on the faces of these Vikings fans that this Star Tribune photo wound up in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    • The Vikings set an NFL record (broken last year by New England) by scoring 556 points in the regular season....

    The Vikings have games remaining against the Falcons and Giants, teams that should remind fans of how things used to be around here.

    I disagree.
    I welcome all fans of the Purple into the fold.


    The 98ers just need to realize they don't know shit.

    I was 12 or 13 during the '98 season and I always watched Vikings games in years previous because my dad did but this was probably the first year where I cared as much as he did. Awesome memories for me personally....until Sunday January 17, 1999
    Skol Vikings! Go Cubs!

    Me too.
    I was 10 and a rather casual Vikings fan, in fact I cheered for other teams too, like (ironically) the Broncos because I loved Elway (although I would have cheered for the Vikings in a Broncos-Vikings SB).
    But 98 seared the love of the Vikings into my soul.
    The article was dead on in it's description of Vikigns fans.
    While I love the Vikes I try to never get too excited because well much like Chicago Cubs fans I am just waiting for "the other shoe to drop."
    I am just waiting for that moment that seems inevitable, that moment where I allow myself to get too happy, to start to believe that this may be the year...only to have my soul ripped out and stomped on.
    Maybe this year is different...who knows.
