    New Guy from the Old South

    Greetings Purple Nation. I'm a sometime lurker who finally got scared from all the threats against my health and decided to get off the bench and get in the game! I'm originally (and currently) from Birmingham, Al :shock: but spent 7 blissful years in the Twin Cities from 91-98. I got two things there that have changed my life immeasurably for the better: a wife and a passion for the Vikings.

    I've been really impressed with the quality of the material you guys throw out on a daily basis, even at this time of year when news can be pretty slow for the NFL. I hope to make my contributions thoughful, relevant and coherent, at least as coherent as a middle-age, ex-pothead can be!


    The man who says he CAN'T and the man who says he CAN are BOTH right.

    Re: New Guy from the Old South

    Welcome Bama, I will be traveling through your fair state this week. I am leaving tomorrow morning for Decatur, and may even make it down there to Birmingham later in the week. If I do you can rest assured I will be making a stop at my favorite Sports Bar P.T.'s for a big helping of Red Beans and Rice. Man I love their Red Beans and Rice!

    Is there a dedicated Vikings hangout on gamedays at a particular sportsbar somewhere in Bham?

    Anyway welcome on board.

    Yea man, welcome aboard. Good to have another southerner on these boards.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Re: New Guy from the Old South

    In honor of your arrival to our great site:

    Sweet Home Alabama

    Big wheels keep on turning
    Carry me home to see my kin
    Singing songs about the Southland
    I miss Alabamy once again
    And I think its a sin, yes

    Well I heard mister Young sing about her
    Well, I heard ole Neil put her down
    Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
    A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

    Sweet home Alabama
    Where the skies are so blue
    Sweet Home Alabama
    Lord, I'm coming home to you

    In Birmingham they love the governor
    Now we all did what we could do
    Now Watergate does not bother me
    Does your conscience bother you?
    Tell the truth

    Sweet home Alabama
    Where the skies are so blue
    Sweet Home Alabama
    Lord, I'm coming home to you
    Here I come Alabama

    Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
    And they've been known to pick a song or two
    Lord they get me off so much
    They pick me up when I'm feeling blue
    Now how about you?

    Sweet home Alabama
    Where the skies are so blue
    Sweet Home Alabama
    Lord, I'm coming home to you

    Sweet home Alabama
    Oh sweet home baby
    Where the skies are so blue
    And the governor's true
    Sweet Home Alabama
    Lordy
    Lord, I'm coming home to you
    Yea, yea Montgomery's got the answer

    I am originally from south central LA (Louisiana, that is), so I have a soft spot in my heart for the South as well. They sure do grow some of the best people in the world, if I do say so myself!!!
