    No longer a silly Guest

    Greetings fellow Vikings fans!

    It's been a long time since I was a member of any real Viking community... computer problems and many moves have made it difficult to stay in touch. But I hope that is behind me now!

    I'm very time limited today so I will keep this short and sweet, and worry about niceties like avatars and things later, when I have more time.

    Anyway... fan since, oh, about '78 or so, since I was old enough to get interested in football. I picked the Vikes for an odd reason: they wore PURPLE, and were therefore unique. Stuck with 'em ever since, with never a doubt. I've never lived in Minnesota... closest I've ever been was the Chicago NW suburbs.

    I used to post a lot on the old alt.fan UseNet boards many many moons ago, and I think I may recognize just a couple of monikers from those days... maybe one or two of you just might remember me.

    My handle comes from the fact that I keep moving around the country, never staying in one place for more than a few years at a time. I'm currently in Indianapolis, by way of Toledo OH, Southfield MI, South Bend IN, New Haven CT, Troy NY, CT again, Sleepy Hollow IL, Mesa AZ, Indy, Toledo again, and then back.

    Time's just about up on this public access library terminal, so I'll quit here and just say SKOL vikings! I'm looking forward to a lot of great discussions with you folks.
