    Hey all

    Just giving a quick hey to all of you. I'm out here in WA (can't stand the seagulls). As the name would suggest I'm in the Navy. I've been a Vikings fan since day one. I grew up in New Ulm, MN and lived there until I joined the Navy in December of '97.

    Every December out here we have a flag-football game against the Army team from Ft. Lewis. I had the pleasure of playing in the game last year, but I had to coach this year due to an injury that has kept me sidelined since May.

    Anyways, I've been up here in WA since Aug '98 and I've had to listen to all the damn seachicken fans talk crap about their teams the entire time. I'm hoping to hear from some other local fans that are up here, and maybe we'll get together at the Cloverleaf for a beer on gameday or somthing. Later all!

    Greetings Navycoach. You'll have to watch the boards for PacNWVike. He's up in your neck of the woods and is always eager to meet up with Viking faithful.

    Yo NavyCoach! Greetings from "The Other Side of The Hills!" I live in the Tri Cities (Richland, Pasco, Kennewick - SE corner of WA) and we have a pretty good Viking following here. Are you at Bremerton or Everett? I'm retired Air Force and appreciate your service to our country. If you ever plan on coming over this way, give me a shout. Skol Vikings!
