    Hello people

    After years of looking at the site I decided to finally join.
    I just moved to Chicago from Minneapolis so I was hoping I could find some fellow Vikings fans to watch the games with down here.


    I grew up around Chicago as an evil Bears fan, but converted around 3rd grade when I started thinking for myself.
    And now I have a tendency to make life-changing decisions based on the Vikings.

    At age 12, I moved to Arkansas where I was surrounded by Cowboys fans and teased almost daily for being a Vikings fan.
    I chose my college based on the Vikings; the ticket office called to tell me I had season tickets the week I had to accept/decline my admissions (ended up at the U).
    Apparently my parents had put me on the waiting list several years before.
    But now I've moved and am going through purple withdrawal.
    I still have my season tickets so I am working on a plan to get back for every home game.
    Plan A was getting a job at United Airlines, I am waiting to hear back from them.

    Interesting story Erinnn, surely a true purple fan.

    Welcome to PP.O, and beware of IL, it's a scary place.

    Skol and Welcome. I was in IL for five years, and hated being surrounded by Bears and Rams fans!

    I also grew up around tons of obnoxious Cowturd fans...I feel your pain!
    BUT now you are amongst your new PP.O family...revel in the purple rain!
    Welcome and post often and well and you will do just fine here!
