    Thanks to all PPO:ers, Vikingfans and Minnesotians

    I just got back home from my "Swedish Vikingfans Tour 2006". I have been in the twincities from the 16th til the 26th and I've had a time of my life!!

    First of all, seeing the vikes play for the first time live, on my birthday, in the dome also for the first time and the squeeze out for a win. Better bday than that is hard to get. It has been a great visit to the Twins alltogether; all people i have met have been so friendly, talkative, nice and helpful. The birds, flowers, berries and trees, and ofcourse the weather too, all reminded me of sweden and ofcourse the scandinavian/ swedish heritage is all over the place and ive suddenly found myself speaking my swedish out of the blue with people on the street. Ive never felt more at home on a vacation than being in Minneapolis and thats mostly thanks to all you Minnesotians... so THANKS!!!

    Also, ofcourse not to forget the great funny people that makes this site what it is and to meet some of those people live at the tailgate was also a blast. Really fun to meet up with you and speak to you and to get a face to your nicks. And a special thanks to Steve for setting me up with a ticket for the Bearsgame.

    Thanks all, that was great and I'll be back!

    PS Pictures will be coming up shortly. I have taken 1500 of them so there are a lot to go through.

    Great to meet you, Dekay!
    I hope that you got a good sampling of American WOMEN while you were here as well...

    Hope to see you the next time that you are here...maybe next season?

    And maybe some of us PP.O'ers should reciprocate and visit your great country in the very near future!

    Awesome Dekay!
    Sounds like a great time.
    I truly believe that if you approach someting with those expectations, that is what you will get back.
    Sounds like you expected a lot and got a lot in return.

    If you are going to visit the US, MN is definitely one of the best places to visit mainly because of the people.

    Glad you made it home safely Dekay.
    It was fantastic meeting you at the tailgating party.

    Here's another thread devoted to our out-of-towners visiting this last weekend:

    http://www.purplepride.org/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=150&topic=27668.0

    Webby and the other mods will have to talk about naming you the official Swedish
    spokesman, diplomatic envoy, or ambassador for the Vikings and PP.O in Sweden.

    Stick around here, and we hope you make it back our way again !!

    Yeah, i dont mind if we merged the two threads at all...

    And for naming me stuff i know there are other people in sweden more devoted than me but not having the chance/ opportunity to come over to the games, so i wouldnt feel comfortable at all having such a title at all.
