    Hello from Scotland

    Hello everyone, long time Vikes fan signing in after lurking for a couple of weeks. I have been a fan since 1984 after watching us lose to the skins 44-38 in OT on Tv in the UK, which was then an hours highlights package once a week. Fortunately we now get 2 live games on a sunday + MNF live. However as the guy fom Wigan has said no Vikings games live so far (maybe this is a good thing?!) this year, so I have been keeping up with games on the play by play on NFL.com. Best time as a fan? 98 regular season 15-1. Worst NFC championship 98 I still can't believe Anderson missed that FG in OT after being perfect all season. Anyway SKOL to everyone here and here's to better times this season. CHEERS!

    Welcome scottishvike and do not be afraid of saying what you think, and posting a lot.


    Hope you do get that live game sometime in the near future! It will get better for the Vikes, if it is not this year than soon.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
