    SKOL

    Being a hard core Vikings fan, 1/2 Norwegian, and having been to many games...I feel stupid asking what is the meaning of skol?

    this one?

    verb {T} -ll- AUSTRALIAN ENGLISH INFORMAL
    to drink something, especially beer, all at once without a pause

    I don't think this is right:

    Fortran pre-processor for COS (Cray Operating System).

    Maybe this one?

    The simplest toast, appropriate for just about any occasion, is "Skål" [pronounced skole]. The English equivalent of this would be something like "Cheers."

    I know somone has the right answer!

    Another great sig by PPE!
    SKOL VIKINGS!!!

    Someone posted the "real" meaning once, it was pretty sickening. Something about drinking...out of a skul, or something like that.

    Someone will know the EXACT meaning.

    The best explanation I've heard (and posted once, I think) was this:
    In Valhalla when the Vikings feast, they drink out of the skulls of their defeated opponents, and when they drink they'd yell "Skul!", meaning use your opponent's decapitated skull to drink, and everyone would drink. So for all intents and purposes it means "raise your glass" or "cheers!" So skul turned to skol, so now it means "cheers" vikings. So basically when we say "Skol Vikings" it means a salute or a toast to the Vikes.
