    Meet Troy Williamson at the airport Saturday night

    I was at the Minneapolis international airport on Saturday night picking up my mother in-law for a weeks stay. I saw these 5 huge guys and a tall lean guy wearing a Vikings hat, one of the big guys was wearing a white jersey with 82 Williamson on the back.

    It took me a second to realize that it was Troy williamson, I was about 5 feet from him and so I called out his first name. He looked over and I welcomed him to Minnesota, and told him I was glad the Vikes had drafted him. And that I was looking forward to watching him play for the Vikes for alot of years. He said thanks and that he was excited about playing here!

    He seemed liked a very nice kid with a good attitude, and did not seem like a stuck-up primadonna. A couple of the big guys at that point hurried him out the door, I suppose that they had a limo waiting to take him to WinterPark.

    Anyways just thought I would tell aboout what hopefully will be a encounter with a future hall of famer (hopefully he has 10 or 11 years with the Vikes and 2 or 3 superbowl rings when he retires)!!

    Great job, whack! Especially after Sid was such a prick, all of us welcoming him is a great thing.

    He was a reach at 7, but way to welcome him! (sorry I'm still a little upset that we passed on Mike Williams!)

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Why did he have bodyguard? No one even knows how he is yet.
    I seen Terrel Owens at a couple of clubs here in houston during the superbowl week and he only had one bodyguard. This guy (troy) doesn't even have a contract yet and he has several bodyguards? :scratch:

    They probably weren't his bodyguards, they were probably his "posse"

    I do not believe that they were all his posse or friends, I think the one guy wearing his college Jersey was a friend, old teammate or relative. I think a couple of guys were from the Vikes, either security or players (but I did not recognize them).
