And i guess watchin the Vikes for a while got to me and iv been following them for a while now and love them all, I even pitched on my own money which i had to work a few weeks to get, So that i could get SUnday Ticket and watch the Vikes Every sunday.

    The day my mother brought me into this world I was a Viking fan.

    Weird as hell Ultra, my birthday is also October 29, but you are four years my senior.
    I became a Vikings fan in 1987. I was born in St. Louis, so I was a die hard Cardinals fan, but when that assssshole Bill Bidwell moved them from sellout crowds in the 'Lou to empty seats in the desert I had to pick a new team.
    I had a little electric football game and it had the Vikings and the Bears on it, and I'll be damned if I like the fucking Bears!!!!! So, now I bleed purple until I die.

    No No No, I am full Purple blood now.I guess hearing " Culpepper to Moss" every sunday really gets to ya lol. But i loved the Cowboys while Aikman was in Dallas, after he left it just wasnt there anymore. Then i started to watch the vikes and i it got to point that when i watch the Viked Vs. Cowboys games i would rather go for the Vikes then the Cowboys.

    Gents,
    I know I'm a newb, but I was 13 when you were born. I
    was always rooting for defensive players (boston patriots then)Then I followed linebackers into the league and one of them was Scott Studwell in my humble opinion, one of the hardest working members of the "post purple people eaters"(classic edition)I followed joey browner,keith millard and enjoyed watching a defese that had the ability to win games.probably why I'm excited in the defense upgrade this year.hoping they draft DJ!! :thumbright:

    Re: When did you become a Vikes Fan?

    I was always a fan of the game, but my first game, and what turned me into a Viking nut, was the 1968 Western Division Championship Game. I was sitting at the open end of the Met Stadium in the bleachers, when Carl Eller sacked Roman Gabriel right in front of me for a safety and we went on to beat the Rams.

    I've been bleeding purple ever since!
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to slide into it broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming at the top of your lungs......

    the year we went 8-8 i cant remember but then i saw the 15-1 season and that firmed up my belief that i actually do bleed purple and gold. i love the vikes and i hope i can go to a nother home game this yr.

    Go Vikes
