    Re: Why I'm A Viking After All These Years

    1). I am a fan of Minnesota. I am loyal to my state I cheer for all there teams. Two I love football and Minnesota's team. Like that one radio commercial says I was one of those people when football season came around I didnt want anything to do with cheese or dairy products coming from wisconsin. 3). I am scandinavian.

    Still A Vikes Fan After All These Years (with apologies to Paul Simon)

    I met some fellow Vikes fan
    At the game last night
    They seemed so glad to see me
    I just smiled
    And we talked about the old players
    And we drank ourselves some beers
    Still a Vikes fan after all these years
    Still a Vikes fan after all these years

    I'm not the kind of fan
    Who tends to bandwagon
    I seem to cheer on
    My old familiar team
    And I ain't no fool for sticking with
    The Vikes through pain and tears
    Still a Vikes fan after all these years
    Still a Vikes fan after all these years

    Early in the afternoon
    Vikings they are
    Playing
    Football's my life Sunday
    I will never waver
    Why should I?
    The Vikes are here to stay

    Now I sit by my TV
    And I watch the games
    I fear I'll do some damage
    What a stupid play
    But I would not be criticized
    By a stadium of my peers
    Still a Vikes fan
    Still a Vikes fan
    Still a Vikes fan after all these years
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Re: Why I'm A Viking After All These Years

    I grew up in Minnesota and have been to Vikes games at all of the cities in our division (all wearing my Randle jersey with the name ripped off to make it a williams jersey) plus a Sunday night game at KC. In college I had to go to a bar to watch all the games, even in our worst years I never missed a game. Last year, I went to every home game despite not being able to afford it but hey I'm young. To answer your question, i guess there are three main reasons: 1: its in my blood and i love this team no matter what 2: Can't wait for that first Super Bowl. 3: I need something to b!tch about

    I have been a Viking fan since 1967. I've seen evereything Viking.
    Lived through every Victory and defeat.
    I have been ridiculed for following them all my life.
    But they are a part of me and I am in way a part of them.
    We all are.

    The feeling of total devotion to one team has a feeling of family.
    So many of my friends just jump on the latest bandwagon for the hot pick in sports. They are always saying that is my team THIS year.

    What the hell does that mean? This year?

    I could never watch a sport were my team changed every year.

    Viking til I die.
    And honestly my casket that is part of my funeral is Viking purple with a Viking Head on the lid.
    So when someone digs me up in 2000 years they will know were I stood on football.

    Re: Why I'm A Viking After All These Years

    I was born and raised in St. Paul and spent 20 years there. starting at the age of seven, my father explained the game of football to me while we watched the vikings every sunday. It became a ritual. When I think of professional football, i think of the vikings. My interest in football is thus inseperable from the vikings. I have followed them through good years and bad. That wont change as long as I love football.
