I know many of you may have covered this in the free beer section, but here is the question... What is your fondest Viking memory and what makes/keeps you as a Viking fan?
Fo me the Vikings have always been my favorite team, born in MN, moved all over the country growing up but stayed a fan, Back in the 60's and 70's (out of the country in the 80's) the NFL marketing was weak compared to todays availability of products- If you lived in Chicago and wanted something other then a bears jersey- tooo bad. Someone once gave me a Butkus jersey as a gift, It quickly turned into my favorite oil checking rag.....
TV coverage was never the greatest unless they were playing a local team, for me these included: bears, rams (LA), raiders, cowboys, chargers, and eagles. These games always gave me HOPE. Anyone remember the mud bowl with the rams?
More memories to follow........
