    One more newbie.....we all are at some point...right?

    As a Newbie I posted my first on an old thread and was called to task by Skol, and rightfuly so...so here I go again.

    While a youngish lad living in Pennsylvania (sp?) in 1969 I was being groomed to take over the reins as head cheerleader for the Baltimore Colts.
    You know, Johnny U and company, but I'll admit I wasn't much of a football fan at the time.
    My father was transferred to Packer Country USA, or real close to it in that we were only two hours from the holy land--Green Bay.
    Both of the 'rents chose to change colors and both chose green and gold.
    Well, long story sorta short, a year later I chose my color, and it was PURPLE!
    Yep, them Purple People Eaters (Alan Page, Carl Eller) were playing my tune, and as the rats did for the pied piper, so did I.
    As you might guess, the house hold became at times quite testy, and almost ugly.
    The worst were those glory years, with a slight blemish at the end, you know--Pittsburgh, Miami, Oakland (chronological order not withstanding).
    Oh, the terrible, terrible humiliation of losing four Super Bowls.
    Oh, yeah and another year of having them rub it in.
    Oh the pain....
    I, as many of you were/are, was a Randy FAN, and proud of it, but his antics were out of line, as many people blessed with greatness tend to be.
    One of my favorites, that helped train/constrain Randy was Chris Carter--there's a man.
    Robert Smith was and is IMHO one of Minnesota's best--ever.
    Chuck Foreman, Stu Voight,
    Fran the man, Jack Del Rio, Ed Marinaro, and so many others to thank for there efforts and sacrifices.
    I grow weepy with good memories.

    Now the future...

    What a future...

    The D is looking killer!
    Troy looks like he's the real deal!
    Chester can contribute, but we need a real stud, soon.
    Travis will help
    TJ looks like the future is safe.
    Can Childress bring it all together?
    Time will tell.

    The word genius isn t applicable in football. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein - Joe Theisman
