    I like Birk alot. Any man who has the guts to go against the grain and say what they think, even if it isn't popular with the people they say it to gets alot of respect from me.

    I agree man... That is one area I wish i could excel in. He is one of my favorite Vikings, I usually like Lineman either D or O because they aren't showy and like me don't really want the light shinning on them but would rather help someone else get there. Matt B you better come back to Minny.

    Has anyone ever been to a Matty Bs?

    My wife and I took some friends there on a Saturday night after a Wild game.
    We thought we'd buy them a nice steak?
    They were out of the first seven choices I made on the menu.
    What we got was good, but when you're set on a filet and end up with chicken it's a little disheartening.
