    Re: Why Are You A Vikes Fan?

    I don't really know how I became a fan. Nobody in my family really cares for football excpet my older brother, who claims to be a packers fan. Maybe it was because I knew the Vikes were the Packers rivals, so I decided to be a Vikings fan just to piss my brother off. I started really watching after I had a teacher that I would make bets with (ex: If the vikes win, I will cut the whole class's homework assignment in half. If they lose, its double). I had to be sure the Vikes could win (even though I knew they could, I had to make sure they had a really good chance when there was homework assignments at stake!) so I started doing my research and watching tons of games!

    Then you really need to be a Lions fan.
    No . . . its worse being a Viking's fan.

    The Lions aren't going anywhere and the fans know it . . . so there's not that much heartbreak at the end of the season.

    The Vikings are similar only they go further, get your hopes up, and then you're at home . . . just like the Lions!

    NO...I disagree.

    When you know your team sucks, you have nothing to brag about.
    Vikings fans have something to brag about every season.
    There is always a positive.

    At the end of it all, 31 teams are at home.
    At least we can say we went farther than the Lions.

    Re: Why Are You A Vikes Fan?

    I was born in Fargo, ND and lived in Sabin, MN.
    Living in Fargo (which is a fart from MN across the river) the Vikings are the team up there.
    Watched Tommy every Sunday.
    One Christmas I got a Vikings helmet.
    Then my mom got me some shoulder pads from a garage sale.
    I would put those things on and my mom would take black make-up and stripe under my eyes.
    I would tell everybody I was going to be Tommy Kramer when I grew up.
    And I did!
    I was a heavy drinker for years while in the Army.

    Anyways, lived half my life in MN too.
    Watched every game.
    Cheered for them, cried for them.
    While I was in the Army my mom sent me every game on tape.


    My 2 boys have been raised witnessing their fathers passion for the Vikings and MN sports and they have accepted it as well and never give in to the hype and glamour of all the other players.
    They love the Vikings and defend that passion.

    DEFENSE. Eller, Page, Marshall and Larsen. My high school team colors were purple and gold then too. The local TV stations only carried Bears games, still do, and I got great joy while watching my Vikings stomp them twice a year. Even if the Vikes have a losing season, if they sweep the Bears, it is a successful season to me.

    I grew up in Indiana when the colts were still Baltimore. So you kinda had ta pick a team. Being a Reds fan the obvious choice would have been the Bengals, but at about 8yrs old for Christmas my brother and I got football unis. He got Johnny U and I got Fran the man. That was it!




    Been a Vikings Fan ever since
