    Hello..... I'm the newest free agent fan to sign up

    Skol!

    This is my first post after a long-time lurking convinced me that this forum is well run, diverse in opinions and personalities, and informative.

    I’ve was finally able to log in to an ID I established a long time ago.
    That’s a long story, with info on firewalls that I may discuss with Mr.
    Webby, for another time…

    I fully anticipate some ‘Welcomes’, ‘Skol Vikes’, ‘Have-a-beer’s’, but also expect the ‘low-post count = limited knowledge teasing’ rightfully owed to rookie posters.

    Bio; I’m an old-school fan, joining in 1969, when, as an impressionable teen, I first saw a pre-game feature of the Purple People Eaters tearing up opposing offenses.
    I live in Connecticut, work with statistics in insurance, and will comment on any misuse of stats, logic, or both, by announcers, analysts or posters.

    I believe in the Grant/Childress disciplinary approach, but not to the extent it was practiced by Les Steckel.
    I also believe in a balanced team (good talent on O, D and ST) that are disciplined enough to play like Vikings outdoors (i. e in a ‘Valhalladium’) again, and behave like gentlemen off the field.
    I’m not sure if Wilf and the ‘Triangle of Authoritarianism’ will lead the current team to a Super Bowl win, but I think they are headed in the right direction.

    OK, where’s my oar?
    I’m ready to help row all the Viking fans in this cyber-longboat to a Super Bowl win via my insightful posts!

    Welcome to another Purple Faithfull.
    1969...... You have to be longsuffering to stick with this team for that long.
    ;D

    I am in the same league as you, born in 1961 to a Vikes household in Northern MN.


    Post well and often.

    Thanks for all the welcomes!



    I'll test the waters in a few threads today, but may be away for a day or two for someone to upgrade my PC.
    So, don't think I'm lost in cyberspace if I don't return until the end of the week. . . .

    Great to have you sign up!
    Looking forward to your posts, anyone that bashes the illogical deserves instant respect in my book....even if I'm the recipient.
