    " PP.O's Who are they really? " 20 Questions with triedandtruevikesfan ...

    PP.O name: triedandtruevikesfan aka tnt
    Real name: Jocelyn
    Age: 26
    Current City: Glen Ellyn, IL
    Hometown: Princeton, MN
    Occupation: wholesale travel agent



    1) How did you choose your screen name?
    I quite honestly have no idea, at first people thought I was an old guy that had been a fan of the team since always, hehe.... I probably should have picked something else, but I like being TNT

    2) tnt, could you tell us a little about where you grew up and about your family?
    I grew up mostly in the Princeton/Cambridge area in Minnesota, I lived in Braham for a couple of years.
    Until recently I lived my whole life in Minnesota. I was a high school mistake, so my parents never were married.
    My mom got married when I was like 2 and my dad a couple years later.
    I have 3 half brothers and lived with mostly my mom.
    I would go to my dads every other weekend.
    I have a HUGE extended family, that is very close knit.
    Family is crazy important to me, I don't get to see them nearly enough, but thats my own fault for leaving home!
    My dad got divorced and remarried and gave me 2 stepsisters and a step brother, my stepsister gave me a beautiful neice about 3 years ago..... so yeah... thats my family.

    3) What type of student where you in High School? Did you play in any sports or where you involved with any school clubs and such? I was a good student up until my senior year.
    I tried to do too much my senior year and burnt myself out.
    The first semester I worked part time, went to college part time, and went to high school part time.
    So I just kinda said F it the last semester and my grades took a huge dump.
    I'm not very athletic, much to my dismay, so I didn't really participate in any sports.
    Mostly just hung out with friends after school.

    4) What did you do after High School?
    I moved down to Mankato to go to college and ended up not actually going.
    I regret it big time now.

    5)What was your first job?
    My first job was at Dairy Queen.
    It was only open seasonally and I actually only worked there for a few months.
    The owner was a real creap though and would only hire high school girls.
    One night when it was me and my best friend working, he was shooting up an old freezer IN the store.
    I quit the next day.

    6) When did you decide to be such a dedicated fan of the Minnesota Vikings?
    I always remember being a fan of the Vikings.
    My mom said that when I was 3 I asked her if everyone in Minnesota had to be a Viking fan, she said no, they didn't have to be, and I told her they were dumb if they weren't.
    I got more into football around middle school, and around high school, was when I started becoming fanatical.

    7) Could you tell us one of your favorite memories that has to do with the Vikings or one of its past or present players, coaches, etc.
    I met Cris Carter at my local walmart when I was in high school, I was so star struck that I didn't even want to go up to him.
    He was super nice though, even though I'm sure he was bored outta his mind.
    That was before the '98 season.

    8}How did you come to find PP.O and what attracted you most to the site?
    I was looking for Viking/Packer jokes and in my google search stumbled upon purplepride.
    I saw an arguement about Daunte and had to chime in so I joined right away, this was in February, probably about 4 years ago.

    9) What other sports teams do you follow?
    Most just the Twins, I'll watch all football though.
    I don't like any other football team other than the Vikings though... and NO I am not a Bears fan.

    10) When you’re not on PPO what could you likely be found doing with your spare time?
    I'm pretty much a homebody, so I'm usually at home, watching tv, scrapbooking, or whatever.
    i'm not very exciting.

    11) Do you say a special prayer before Vikings games?
    I don't.
    I have my getting ready ritual though.

    12)Where do you watch away Vikings games?
    I watch all games in front of the computer because most games aren't televised in chicago.
    I really need to get to a game soon!

    13)What is your worst fear?
    SNAKES!!
    OMG!
    Its more like a phobia than a fear, its definitely not normal!

    14) What type of hobbies do you enjoy?
    I recently got into scrapbooking, thats really my only hobby... the first page I made was of my first football game in 2003.

    15) What’s your favorite food?
    hmmmmm.... anything that has potatoes in it... mashed potatoes, french fries, whatever... love love love potatoes

    16) Where are some of the places you’ve been, and where are some of your favorites.
    FL, CO, RI, MA, Canada, most of the east coast states I've at least driven through... I think Colorado is probably my favorite though.

    17) What is one thing you've always wanted to do, but haven't done yet in your lifetime?
    Travel more.
    I'd love to get out of the US and see what the world has to offer.

    18)If you could live anywhere where would it be?
    Not really sure, every where has something wrong with it.
    Other than Chicago being the home of the Bears, I mostly like it here.
    I'll probably move back to Minnesota at some point though... maybe I'd like to live on an island... not really sure.

    19) Do you believe the Vikings will have their big day someday? When they do win the Super Bowl, what will be the first thing you think you will do?
    Of course I think they will!
    I think it every year!
    I think I might cry.... then rub it in Lance's face that we FINALLY won a superbowl!

    20) Up to this date, what is one of your favorite PPO memories?
    Hanging out with Webby, Dave, and Shock.
    We had some good times at champs... and of course the infamous night before a game a couple years ago.
    We had waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much to drink and went to the game oh so drunk.
    I broke a nail making a drink for webby, I puked all over Dave's bathroom, and me and webby ran through the sprinkler.
    Good times.

    Good read. I hope you do get to travel more soon, instead of just selling those packages. Perhaps even getting to Europe

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.
