    MANKATO — Suzann Schroepfer is a native of California. But her husband Mike is a native of Minnesota. And though the family resides in New Jersey, the Vikings are the NFL team of choice....

    True fans will come, and when they start making some noise the rest will follow. I know that if I lived near Mankato I'd be a fixture in those stands for afternoon practices after work and a couple weekends too. But alas I live in Texas and really appreciate the posts made by those who can get to Training Camp. So thanks for the picture's and updates you lucky ones have shared with us Viking fans in far places.

    Winning fills a stadium.
    Not much for the average fan to get excited for in Minnesota.
    Several average - subpar seasons are providing the results.
    The diehards will show no matter what the record.
    Most fans are not diehards . . .

    Andrew Kelly, 14, of Dubuque, Iowa, was excited to be on hand as well........

    "I think they're going to be pretty good this year," Kelly said. "The defense will still be tough and the offense should be better too."
    Damn, the 14 year old has a better clue than some of you jokers on here.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
