    Sad news to pass on to my fellow PPOers

    It is with a heavy heart that I have to say that my dear wife passed
    away today after a 5 year battle with kidney cancer. She enjoyed sports
    and took up the Purple banner happily when we first met. It was her
    that first suggested that we could go the TC to see a game in 2000 (against Buffalo ) and thereafter a game each year until our last visit in 2010 - of course shopping in the MOA was a bonus for her as well !
    She was harsher than me at times on the team, especially in the Childress era but always knew that I bled Purple and made allowances when I was up at silly times of a morning to watch a game live ( even when we were playing poorly ).

    I always hoped that she would be able to see the Vikes win the big game and that we would be able to go together to a game in the new stadium but that was not destined to be.

    We were lucky to meet many PPOers on our visits to games and she always enjoyed her times at the pre-game tailgates due to the great hospitality extended to us. Likemyself, she looked on Minnesota as her adopted home on 'that side' of the Pond. My world and the Viking world is a slightly poorer place today for her loss.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    So sorry for your loss, Anglo. There's not much really that I can say. The world is a sadder place now, but you know you'll always have friends here who stand with you.

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    Tough stuff... sorry to hear about your loss, AngloVike. Didn't have the good fortune of meeting her, but hope to meet you and the rest of the PPO crew at the new stadium.

    Take care.
