Ode to Warriors past--


Jermaine Wiggins--- Not long ago someone here was posting and mentioned that they once really liked Jermaine Wiggins as a player...and it made me think about all the guys I've rooted for through my viking years.....most stars a couple not so much that for whatever reason I really loved their style of play...and it made me wonder what Players were your all time favorites and why?

mine was Fran Tarkenton- Watching him run around in our crazy ass purple uniforms with the horns cutting through the snow while crazed Lions and Bears chased him around the Met is what made me a lifelong Viking fan even though I lived far from the fabled land of a thousand lakes. And he was just a little guy, a little guy like me who had to try to survive the playground games of "kill the guy with the ball" (using the politically correct name for that game) and "king of the hill" using quickness and speedy and strategy because I was the runt of the litter......

Through him I came to cherish all of the purple people eaters, Bill Brown though I only caught the tail end of his career, Yary, Tinglehoff, Ed White and his arm wrestling prowess, chuck foreman, etc... .......through the years I developed a great fondness for other guys like Joey Browner, Scott Studwell, Anthony Carter, John Randle, Ahmad Rashad, Keith Millard, Matt Blair, Robert Smith, Chris Hovan, Chad Greenway, etc.....But my all time favorite, gosh darn it football was better when he was in it, why the hell couldn't they have won just 1 super bowl with him and my adult life would've been better, was Sir Francis of Tarkenton...
