    What does Skol mean?

    I am a huge Vikings fan and will always be through thick and thin. My brother is good friends with Daunte from High School so I have been to a few Vikings game. I always hear the Vikings chant, but always wonder what does Skol mean. Just wonderining.

    Re: What does Skol mean?

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia;

    Skol, Vikings is the fight song of the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League. It was introduced around the time the team was founded in 1961.

    The old recording is usually played whenever the team scores, accompanied by cheerleaders carrying flags that spell out the team's name, as per the lyrics:

    Skol, Vikings! Let's win this game.
    Skol, Vikings! Honor your name.
    Go get that first down
    Then get a touchdown,
    Rock 'em, sock 'em, fight, fight, fight, fight!
    Go, Vikings! Run out the score;
    You'll hear us yell for more.
    V-I-K-I-N-G-S!
    Skol, Vikings! Let's go!

    Skol (written skål in norwegian, and sometimes "Skoal" in English) is the Norwegian word for a salute or a toast, as to an admired person or group.

    Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skol%2C_Vikings"

    "If at first you don't succeed, parachuting is not for you"

    In the P.J.'s, my blend tape plays, bullets are strays
    Young bitches is grazed
    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped
    Plus the Island is packed
    From what I hear in all the stories when my peoples come back, black
