    If thats all you knew at the time.


    I see your point though because a person has no sense of knowledge for the game.

    I think if you were born into a fan you can say you have been one for life (IMO).


    The title of the thread included this key word "Following".
    Kinda hard to follow a team when you are crapping your pants and nursing on a teet.

    Long enough to know multiple name associated with each jersey number.

    When you are drinking purple milk from mom and she is right there in front of the game and dad is yelling at the TV it is pretty
    formative in child development.

    I've been following the team since about 1980 (when I was 6 or 7). So that would be about 27 years give or take.
    Even babies know the difference.

    You guys are so old.

    My dad was a vikes fan, so I was a vikings fan. I really didn't start caring until I was 6-7 in 1996, I was a big Warren Moon fan, then 98 came along and I fell in love with the team and have been a huge fan ever since.

    :-XOk let me put my teeth in, my glasses on, and my hearing aid on(why I would need this to post is beyond me) and say Dad tells me that I officially started liking the Vikes in 1968 at the tender young age of 9. I was attracted to the team color, he said. I guess that makes it 37-38 years? GEEZ, I hear my bones creaking......
