    Viking from across the pond!!

    Hi all.
    Well i suppose i better give myself an intro!!

    Im 21 and live in Birmingham, England.
    Im currently finishing my 3rd year of university and graduate in the next few months.
    Ive supported the vikings since i can remember.
    My dad was the initial supporter after he did some volunteer work over there.
    Since then hes always followed them and passed the Viking fever onto me.

    Favourite player that i can remember is Chris Carter #80. . . awesome!!

    In England we dont really get much coverage of NFL, although they are starting to increase TV coverage to 4 games a night on Sundays on sky sports.
    Therefore followers are hard to find.
    Thats why ive joined this community to talk to people who know something about it and wont look at me blankly when i try to explain that an NFL team is comprised of three seperate "teams", partly because ur american and u know ur sports, and partly because u cant see me
    .


    Really chuffed that the NFL is coming to Engalnd this year, hopefully gonna get a ticket to Wembley when they go on sale.

    Im a big fan of the NFL and the Vikings in particular so this place will allow me to speak to other vikings fans that know their stuff.
    Hopefully ill learn things as i go so if i say something really stupid like "whats the difference bewteen a 3-4 and a 4-3 defense?" (although i now know) then dont spit on me
    :-X or give me any jip :'(.

    Well i look forward to chatting with y'all (said in an american accent) soon!!

    Welcome my friend.

    You have picked the right site to learn about football and your team.
    There are others out there but not of this caliber.

    Post Well and Often.
    ;D

    Welcome Viking brother. There are a few others from across the pond on here and other places throughout the world. Don't be worried if you don't know something, just ask. Unless you want to know what Skol means.. then people will yell at you for the sheer fact that they've been asked countless times.

    Skol and welcome to PP.O.
    Always nice to see that the purple faithful exist across the globe.
    There are a few other Brits on this site too.

    Welcome.

    Don't worry about knowing the terminology; it'll be easy to pick up from the postings here, over time.
    We only taunt Packers or Bearrrsss fans that come here to make trouble about their poor choice of words, or lack of knowledge regarding terminology.



    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !
