    New Member- Long Time Fan

    Have been perusing the PPO and thought that I would introduce myself.
    I grew up in Minnesota and thusly a preordained Viking Fan. Having been a teenager in the late 60's and early 70's I fondly remember the good times at Metropolitan Stadium......outdoors, colder than absolute zero, the Purple People eaters, and of course, Bud Grant. Ahh....... Great times.
    As you can tell from my time line, I have just become eligible to join AARP and so I am now considered chronologically challenged.
    Spent the 80's in Florida in the Tampa Bay area, and remained a staunch Viking Fan. Went to a few games there wearing a Purple Jersey surrounded in a sea of orange.
    Spent the 90's back in Minnesota, God's country. Unfortunately my occupation resulted in me relocating to Iowa, but still am a Viking Fan and always will be.
    In my many years as a supporter of the Vikes, I have lost money in four Super Bowls, witnessed bad seasons, controversial players, good seasons, and great players.
    Still and always a Viking Fan.

    Last Note:
    I am surrounded at work by many people of the Dark Side i.e. Cheeseheads. They are misguided souls and condemned to Football purgatory. May Thor have mercy on their souls

    Welcome Nickbo. I wasn't a teenager until the early 70's. Lot of Hall of Famers in that era. Fran the Man was an exciting QB to watch.

    Greetings from another long-time Vikes fan. I grew up watching the likes of Tarkenton, Foreman, and the Purple People Eaters.
