    A proverbial Newbie

    Greetings from Nebraska!

    This is a great website, so I'll keep this short so we can all get back to reading other more informative posts.
    I'm 35 years old and up until 2 years ago was a casual pro football watcher at best.
    Besides, I'm in Big Red country right?
    Anyhoo, I meet this girl, she's a Vikings FREAK, we start hanging out, we start watching more and more football, we move in together and in November we went to the Dome for the Vikings/Packers game. I had a blast and now I'm all into the PurplePride.
    I'm trying to learn as much as I can by reading the posts here.
    It's not been easy but I guess all I need to know this week is we have to beat the Bears.


    I mentioned earlier I'm in Big Red country, this is our "Rebuilding" year.
    Truth to tell, I think the Vikes are in a rebuilding year themselves so I for one am excited about what's to come.


    I like the Vikings, I like to eat wings while watching the Vikings...hence "Vikewings."

    I've just been informed we have tickets for the showdown with the Rams in December, I can't wait!

    Welcome to the site!

    Sure wish I could meet a girl that's a Vikes fan. If your girlfriend has any friends that are likeminded....send them my way.
    ;D

    Looking forward to reading your posts!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of PP.O, VW & to your new found Purple Pride!

    I believe we will be having a tailgate party prior to that game & it would be nice to meet you & your GF.

    Watch for a thread as it gets closer to the game. With Del Rio, Caine & Acumen coming to the game, I'd really be surprised if there isn't one.

    Welcome VikeWings and hope that you stick around awhile and contribute to the site for a lot of years.

    I spent about a month in Nebraska back in the late 80's when I was working on the railroad driving a rail grinder, I had a great time and partied a lot in your state.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I'm still waiting to be informed that I have tickets too...
    Hence the fact that I have none.
    :'( Lol


    Welcome to the site. If it's Vikings information you're looking for, you'll more than likely find all you need... and then some that you don't need.
