    Saw Matt Birk today

    The wife and I went to a Twin Cities auto dealer today, got a few pictures and a FREE football signed by Matt Birk. One of the pictures was one I bought a few years ago at the Vikings Draft Party, but I got one from him and had it signed "To the Gang at Purple Pride - Go Vikes!!"

    Funny thing is, I asked him if he'd heard of the site before, and he said "Well, I'm not much of an internet guy - I don't even have my own email address." Go figure. Oh well, it was fun anyway. I attached the picture below.

    Wow Shock, that's awsome dude. Really cool of you to get it signed like that. It's kinda like you got it signed for all of us here at PP.O, especially the fellas like me that never get to see these players in person.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    There is an Embassy Suites hotel right near where I live. I was over there picking up some relatives when I saw MJ walk out the door with a bunch of people around him..Since they were all reporters (for the Jimmy V golf classic) They wouldn't let them near him but fans were allowed to go up and get autographs and stuff so I got an autograph.
