    How long have you been following the purple and gold????

    This season was my 18th year in following the vikes and actually realizing what was going on.

    How about everybody else?

    I started watching them when I was like 7 years old.. That was almost 22 years ago.. However I didn't start following them real close until I moved to Wis, which was in 1991. So Like 16 years now..

    Re: How long have you been following the purple and gold????

    I started closely following the vikes when I was 5 is what my dad says. He has told me that I watched every game with him & had a bunch of Vikings stuff. If I saw something Vikings I would throw a fit until he bought it for me. So this is now my 20th year being a Vikings Fan.

    Thanks PPE for the Sig

    This year marked my 30th year of supporting the purple and gold.


    In that time, I have missed watching 4 total games ... The last one missed being the Vikes/Cards game around x-mas when I was flying back to FL. and couldn't get a later flight.

    Ever since I was born.
    I never knew what was going on until I was about 4 but the Purple was in my blood.
    my entire family in Minnesota are all purple fans.
    My uncle says he is done but others say he will be back.

    I missed almost every game from 2000-2002 In Korea For the Army. & from Nov. 2005 - Nov. 2006 In Iraq. and then New Years Eve this year against the Rams. In Key West.

    I have been rooting for the Vikings since they started showing the NFL over here. I believe the first action we got were in 1993 but I can't be sure.

    We have only gotten extensive coverage the past 6 years though, so it has been possible to follow them more extensively.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Re: How long have you been following the purple and gold????

    My dad has been a Viking fan forever, every since I was born in 1975 I have been following the Vikes, because he was. I really didn't know what was going on until the early eighties. I have seen pics of me in a Vikings shirt when I was about 2. My Kids were born Viking fans too. They better stay that way.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it!!
