I've been a Vikings fan since I was 7 years old. Since early 1988 and Anthony Carter went off. I've had a ton of gear (starter jacket! And may again as they're BAAAACK) and supported for over 25 years. If the greys in my beard don't date me, that sentence does.
I've been to Minnesota once during the @amazing@ 2011 season and was @blessed@ to see Ponders first ever start live against Green Bay. Personally, I had the BEST time. As a Canadian I've never met nicer people and it was the best party EVER. We shut that tailgate DOWN. We partied with DJ Danny (I believe :) and even though we went in 1-5 and left 1-6 it was amazing.
Oh, it was my birthday weekend AND my bachelor party. Boom.
So now we return. And It is eerily similar. Green Bay. Bday weekend. We're 1- and whatever. Possible new QB starting for the first TIME THAT SUNDAY NIGHT!!
I'm blessed to be able to come back. I need some new gear. I'm hitting MOA for sweaters and jerseys. I'm thinking a purple Peterson and a white Patterson. But I would love an HOF Cris Carter. Basically I'd pull an MJ and buy everyth if I could.
Let me know where I should look in MOA and if anyone wants to celebrate football with a true fan that Sunday night and we can all tailgate our asses off.
Good God, I am so amped for this game that I'll probably lose my voice in my sleep the night before.
