    Waddup from Denver

    I've lurked this board for long enough to know that new members need to introduce themselves here. Why it took this long to register as a user, I have no idea.

    I'm born in Fargo and grew up all over MN and ND as a huge Vikings fan. I have lived outside of Denver for about 7 years now. (Thank God for the Sunday Ticket) My friends have tried for a long time to convert me to a Donkeys fan, but I'm happy to report they have been unsucessful so far. I've been reading this website for about three years now and I enjoy all the posts and opinions from all the members. I have no clue why I haven't posted to this point, but the excitement of the upcoming season compelled me to share some of my opinions on our Beloved Purple with you. I plan on hanging around here for awhile so if I step on any toes, just put me in my place.

    I figure I should start this thread with an interesting story you guys would probably enjoy.

    As you all know, the last Vikes game of the season last year was here in Denver. What you probably didnt't know was that Vikes fans came into Invesco Field and OWNED the place that day.

    My wife (a converted Vikings fan from Manhatten) and I met a
    bunch of our friends (obviously Bronco fans) for a little tailgating about 4-5 hours before the game started. When we got there my friends were shocked at the amount of Purple they saw. These guys have been going to Broncos games for 20 years, and they couldn't believe the amount of Vikings fans at the stadium
    4 hours before kickoff.
    I informed them that there's a lot of us Minnesotans living here in Colorado and that the Vikes come here once every 8th season or so.

    Then we saw it.

    Some dude had a van with that 30 ft blowup Vikings player from the commercial where the the Bears fan and the Vikes guy tried to one up each other. He strapped it to the top of his van and it towered over the entire parking lot. Even my Broncos friends had to admit it was awesome.

    We all know how the game turned out, and that 4th quarter that TJack played gives me hope that we can be a solid team that will grow into a real Super Bowl contender in the next year or two. I am looking forward to being here for all the highs and lows with you guys. (I just probably won't post during the lows, but I'll be reading)

    Welcome!
    Like you I grew up in Minnesota/North Dakota and moved to Colorado. I'm in Kentucky now but never gave up my love for the Vikes. I hated those blue and orange uniforms.

    No, that is the best time to post/vent,
    I am just hoping that we don't have many lows the next few seasons.

    Welcome to PPO!

    Interesting read.
    Lurked for three years?
    That's some serious lurking right there.
    Kind of like the invisible man that joins the family reunion visible and he knows everything about everyone else and nobody knows anything about him.
    Glad you're joining the fun.
