    Why I am a Viking fan...

    I just signed up so I figured I would go after the free beer and explain why I am a Vikings fan.
    It may the most round about way of becoming a fan you have ever heard.

    Back in 1986 I started playing fantasy football.
    The league I was in required your team name to be an NFL team.
    My buddy and I through some names in a hat and the luck of the draw led to the Vikings.
    Over the years I accumulated hats, t-shirts, jackets, etc for display during our yearly draft.

    I would wear the stuff and people kept coming up and asking if I was a Viking fan.
    I eventually got sick of having to tell the long story that I just started to follow the Vikings and lo and behold I became a fan.

    I live on the central coast of California so many of my co-workers are Raider fans.
    I will be loving it come Nov 18th when the Vikes take them down. . . . . . . .

    Welcome and Skol.
    Everyone becomes a fan in a different way, and for a different reason.
    Happy to have you at PP.O!

    Nice story. Everyone starts somewhere, and I bet that is one of the most unusual I've heard of.

    Good to have you aboard here at PP.O
