    Hello from a new Vikings fan!

    Congratulations on drafting Adrian Peterson!
    I hope he brings you as much excitement and joy as he did us.
    I know there are durability concerns (and I have to agree with them), but remember all players risk injury to an extent.
    It happens, unfortunately.
    Such is football (such is life) .
    What I can say is that he blew our skeptics away and we fell in love with him immediately.
    Sure, he's an explosive back, the most 'hair raising' athelete i've witnessed in person since my years at OSU watching Barry Sanders.
    But most importantly he's a hard worker, a great teammate, and a good kid.
    His years at OU were less than injury-free, but I know the OU fans wouldn't trade those years for anything.
    He may go down early, and that would be a terrible shame and rotten luck for the Vikings, but rest assured he would go down playing his A## off.


    And who knows, he may go down as the best ever.
    (yeah, he's that good)


    keep the upside on your minds, best of luck!

    Go Vikings!

    I never imagined A. D.
    in purple, but it looks great!

    Are you a Viking fan now because Peterson is a Viking? If so, who did you previously (or still do) root for? Either the case, welcome aboard, and good move switching to the purple side..

    Living in Oklahoma, I am more of an NFL fan in general than any one team.
    I do have the NFL teams I 'lean toward', and the Viks have been one of those.
    I am not a big Sooners fan either.
    I attended OSU, and OU will always be the 'evil empire' to me (heh).
    However, I've been waiting several years, since AD's first game as a Freshman, to see what he can do in the NFL.
    His enthusiasm and approach to his teammates are what really set him apart in my eyes.
    If things go well, I think his future is incredibly bright.
    And, as AD would have it, his team's future would be incredibly bright.
    The fact the Vikings invested in him gives me a reason to be enthused.
    Admittedly, AD did tip the scales to the purple side, but it feels right.
    I won't make predictions, just hoping for the best for AD and the Vikings.
    I'll be wearing purple (to my pleasant suprise) and watching this season with more reasons to cheer.


    btw. .
    great community here, fate?
    :P


    SKOL!
