    The meaning of Christmas and friendship on PP.O. A must read!!!

    I do not even know how in the heck to start this.


    There are so many great members here that I cannot even begin to name them all.
    I have a lot of people here who I consider "close" friends; even though we have never met before.
    It's kind of weird.
    I have never met aby of you (except TheAnimal), yet there is a bond between some of us (bono not included).

    Anyways...I have always said in public and private that Singer is a great guy!
    He has done a lot for so many people here.
    He has given Vikings tickets to quite a few members and has shown people a great time when they come in for a game.
    That alone speaks volumes for his character.
    He is an esteemed member here too.
    He does the best job of making sure the members here only have to make one stop to read the Viking's news of the day.
    Sure, we have cracked on him some for the seal clubbing photo, but we all really value this guy.

    When I got home today there was a package at my doorsteps.
    I looked at the return address and see that it is from Singer.
    Right away I knew that it was something special.
    When Singer does things for people, he goes all the way.
    I open the package and there are 2 gifts in there (wrapped and even with bows) from Santa.
    The first one contained some Minnesota Vikings tissue paper.
    I could have used this all year to wipe away the tears of pain and anguish.
    Then I opend the other packege.
    It was a "Riddell" box.
    He had paper tucked in the side so I could not see what it was.
    So I pull the paper away and saw that it was a Vikings mini helmet.
    Not only that....but it was signed by Cris Carter #80!!!
    I almost fainted right there!
    He knows, as do a lot of others, that Cris is by far the greatest Viking ever to wear the Purple and Gold IMO!
    What a guy!
    I cannot even find the right words to describe how great of a person Singer is!
    He really made my Christmas!

    Singer, you are a great, great guy!
    I am so glad that I have got to know you personally!
    Thank you so much for the very thoughtful gift!
    Wow!

    Great story!
    Doesn't surprise me for a second, a generous person that values people over stuff.
    I wish there were more like him.

    Singer truly is a great guy.
    I got the chance to go to my first Vikings draft party with him, a true class act!

    Hey Ultra, Funny thing happened to me today also...[size=18pt]The same thing!![/size] Only mine was signed by [size=18pt]Ron Yary!![/size]

    You said it better than I could have. Singer is the best guy around! First he replaces my Helga hat when it was stolen, now I have the best present ever!! (No Raven fan getting the chance to steal this one!) My favorite player!

    [img width=48 height=41]http://www.forumup.com/images/smiles/slider_thankyou.gif[/img] [size=12pt]singer![/size] None of my family can even come close to this present! My Christmas is complete thanks to singer.

    Being new here and seeing a thread like this makes me know that this is where I want to be.
    Big hearts, Viking fans, and friends nonetheless.


    I have "met" a handful of people on here and you all give so much to the site.
    From Webby to the MOD's (keeping me inline in the YELL ) to the newbies.
    It is great to come to a site and be welcomed by so many...and fit right in with the convos and threads and PM's.
    Definitely addicting and the reason for that is all of the great people here.
    I look forward to "meeting" more of you and my first tailgating experience the 31st.

    Singer~You are amazing and do have a heart of gold.
    BTW
    Thanks for the Ram tickets.

    [size=10pt]Happy holidays everyone!!
    Have fun and be safe![/size]

    bearitall

    You're both very welcome & entitled to it.

    I know how much you both love your respective favorite players.

    Ultra posted that he wouldn't be getting a present this year & I wanted to prove him wrong. Day in & day out he spends a great deal of time moderating this site without much credit. It's just my way of showing him some appreciation.

    Fedje has mentioned many a time on this site that Ron Yary was her favorite player. She asked me to get her his autograph when he was at one of the games, but he was not signing autographs outside the dome. I knew how much it meant to her so I did the next best thing.

    Not to mention I have respect for Fedje. She is in her middle ages, her kids are all grown up & moved out, she even has a grandkid & she made a decision to go back to college & get her degree. I admire that in a person.

    There is another person here who touched me with her generosity this year & she will get an autographed helmet of her favorite Viking player of all time. I'm just not 100% sure it's who I think it is or I would have sent it already. I'm guessing Joey Browner, but I could be wrong.

    I'm speaking of course about Freya, who gave the most precious gift of all this year, the gift of life.

    Earlier this year she unselfishly donated one of her kidneys to her brother without so much as a blink of an eye. I'm proud of you girl, so if you read this thread, PM me your top 3 Vikings players of all time, in order. I'm sure I'll have one of them.

    A special Merry Christmas to you 3 & a very Merry Christmas to the rest of PP.O.

    I will be having a Viking memorabillia give away drawing, hopefully within the next week, so that
    all the other members of PP.O will have a chance to win something Vikings related.

    Keep an eye out for the thread.

    Christmas is a time of giving & showing thanx.
