    Viking Fan living in Exile

    Hello folks, this is the first post of mine (funny, on some message boards "firstpost!" is bannable)

    I'm a Viking Fan who grew up in Minnesota but a long time ago moved south. I posted at the old VikingUnderground as John Peregrine but have picked up Darth Brooks as a moniker since then.

    I'm into graphic arts and one of my weird hobbies is making football cards for Viking players (starters and players I like) who otherwise wouldn't have one. I had done this about every year but took a couple of years off and then did a bunch last year.

    Looks like a good board, I look forward to participating.

    Not here, you'll find we're a friendly bunch that love the Vikes and to talk football.
    For the most part we all get along pretty well, regardless of post counts or how long we've been around.
    I'm sure you'll fit right in.

    SWEET !! It'd be awesome if you could make up some virtual cards of the members here... I mean, once you're acclimated to the site and all.
    You could include our join dates, our star qualities, our images:

    Welcome to PP.O, Darth. I'm sure you'll find this site to your liking.

    What Vikings players cards have you made & can you share some of them with us?

    Have you made a Brock Lesnar or Heath Farwell one at all?
