    This American Football thing....

    New boy here. First of all, I am proud to be part of the Viking following.

    Boring bit. I live in a community riddled with closet Bears, Packers and JCL Patriot fans. They seem to thrive on turning out for the 'big' game on sunday. So it gives me great pleasure to turn out in Purple and sit amongst these 'wannabe' Favres and Ditkas and to run the gauntlet of hate that ensues. It is especially annoying, and perplexing, to the masses when they hear my Viking chanting in a Non American accent. Yes, I am a Brit.

    Lived here for five years, followed the Vikings for three. The first two, I couldnt get used to the new deffinition of 'football'. I am still learning the ropes but loving every minute of it. Why the Vikings? Partly peer pressure from my partner, she schooled in Minneapolis, but mostly because my father was a Norse god.

    Look forward to learning a lot more now. Beers in Detroit, anyone?

    Welcome to the site.

    Always good to have one more person to discuss football (real or American) with.

    So who's your 'soccer' team.
