I can relate...from Louisiana, been a Vikes fan since I was a kid. Invite them to join us...the more the merrier.
I work at a large plant just outside of Philadelphia. I am an Eagles fan, but in our plant there is a pretty big group of Vikings fans. None of these guys came from Minnesota, they all say they like the Vikings since they were kids. We have about 1000 people working here. There are the usual Cowboys fans, (Band wagoners) Giants Fans, (guys trying to get on our nerves) and not much else. Except the Vikings fans. Thought you would find that interesting. Good luck during the rest of the season. Packers Suck!
