    My PPO Season.

    Hi! I spent alot of time (relatively) on this site throughout the season & wanted to let folks know how cool it was and how my experience as a 'Vikes fan has been improved as well as my overall knowledge of the team.
    It started out great with a win at atlanta. Losses came next at Det and KC. I had a complete meltdown on the site after the KC game and then after some time on the board realized that there are folks here who have followed the "Vikes for as nearly as long as I have been alive. Level-headed fans who knew how to take a loss and put things in perspective. I still get a little pissy after a loss but can now temper my remarks and look at the long run. I met with alot of the PPO crowd at the GB game and was really stoked to come home and see what folks have to say on this site. I love the Vikings and can honestly say that this site and the folks on it have made me a better fan! Looking forward to the offseason (FA,DRAFT) and all the discussion and arguements that will follow! SKOL'VIKES!

    Very nice my friend.

    I still remember the "40 Yard Penalty Discussion" you and I had after AD messed up and stepped out at the 1 on that kickoff.

    By the way, did you see how many more times that happened this year?
    4 More.
    Glad the coaches taught it to them.

    Seriously though, just ribbing ya.
    Glad you are back and posting my friend.
    Any loss of members is a loss to the site IMHO.

    Everyone of us make the site what it is.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    It's good to know that you have enjoyed your time here, and feel that you have gotten 'better' from being here.

    I do also think that we shape the edges of each other from being around here, and sharing our views. Especially if we are actually reading responses to what is posted, and are not just trying to put our own two cents in.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I was also new this year and this site has made the season enjoyable even in defeat. I look forward to next year and the draft party.

    It's been great having you here Jereamiah, I enjoy your takes.
    I've become more even-keeled in my fandom since becoming a member here.
    I don't get too down after a loss nor overly confident after a win.
    Win or lose I enjoy seeing what others have to say, and they usually make me laugh.


    Meeting you and your family at the tailgate was fun too.
    Hope to have you back next year, and continue posting here.
