    New here

    Hi, all.
    Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself.
    My name is Tammy.
    Was born and raised near Youngstown, Ohio.
    Have lived in SC and CT and am now back in Ohio.
    I have been a Vikings fan since the mid 70s.
    Why the Vikings when the Steelers were so good and I lived close to Pittsburgh?
    I was 7, my dad was a huge Vikings fan and my favorite color was purple.
    They were good.
    Francis Asbury Tarkenton was fun to watch (I was young when he retired and remember crying when he announced his retirement).
    They had the Purple People Eaters and Chuck Foreman (I met him in 1997 and have a huge picture of me next to him, our arms around each other, me with the biggest grin on my face - I show that pic to people who don't know me well and tell them that's my husband. You ought to see the reactions.
    It's hysterical.
    Chuck has legs like tree trunks and is huge.
    I'm 5 4" 115 lbs and tiny next to him).
    They had Ahmad (Bobby Moore) Rashad and Sammy White.
    Later on we had Cris Carter who came around the end of Anthony Carter's career.
    We've had some truly memorable receivers and quite a fun year in 1998 that ended in devastation.


    I've followed this team a long time now and still do, even thru all the psychological damage they've inflicted.
    I hate the Packers and the Bears (well, right now my anger is directed at Vick but after seeing him take a few good shots, I'll feel better).


    I have 3 adoring pugs, 1 husband of 18 years and no kids.
    I work from home full time.


    I was planning to see them play against the Browns in September but just found out my mom is going to have heart surgery that month and I just broke my foot so I don't know how that's going to pan out.
    I have seen them live 4 times and I have to ask - how in the world do you guys follow the action live?
    It's fun being there but I prefer to watch the TV where the camera can follow the ball.

    Don't know what else to say other than I work with pug rescue and am a strong believer in our constitution, have a concealed carry license, carry a Glock 27, .40.
    (People like Plaxico make all gun owners look bad.
    What an idiot).


    Anyway, looking forward to getting to know some fellow hardcore Vikings fans.

    I think that was to ward off any potential Cajuns. ;D

    Welcome to the boards!
    Thanks.
    I like my Glock.
    Makes me feel safer.
    Had to undergo training, fingerprinting and an FBI background check for my license.
    I practice as often as I can.
    What's fun is making targets like the GB Packers logo and things like that to fool around with at the range.
    Some would probably like to do Childress - LOL, but I won't do a specific human, just logos and stuff.
    I did finish my class only missing 1 of 42 shots - it went into the right arm rather than center mass.
    Oh well.
    Tammy

    Thanks for the welcome!
    So, VikingMD, how long until my broken foot heals?
    LOL!
    Dang those cam walkers are hot in the summer!


    Love pic of your doggies.
    I'll get my act together here soon and post a pic or two of my 3 puggies.
    I have 2 blacks and 1 fawn, 2 males, 1 female.
    The fawn is a rescue and a pain in the butt most of the time but he's cute and very loving.
    They are such a joy and a huge reason I hate Michael Vick and hope he's the victim of a random dog attack.
    John Randle would have had fun with him.
    So will, I'm sure, some dog-loving NFL players.
    ;D

    Nice!!!
    I look forward to going through the same process with my wife.
    Until then, I'm just gonna have to hit the range with a few buddies that already have their carry license and practice some shootin'.

    Welcome and SKOL!!!
    Vegans are eating the rainforests. =(
