This is only my second post, but I wanted to formally introduce myself to all you other great people, i.e., Viking Fans. I'm from northwest Pennsylvania, pretty much located right in the middle of Pittsburgh to the south, Buffalo to the north, and Cleveland to the west. But, believe it or not, there are quite a few Viking fans here in our little town. I've seen the Vikings play live in all those locations at least once, (Buffalo as far back as the snowball to Chuck Foreman's eye game -- '75 I believe?), plus Washington. Ultimately though I would love to see them at home. I can't wait for this season, since we should finally have a DEFENSE again. I date back to the days of the original Purple People Eaters and long for a dominant defense again. Baseball is boring (especially when you're a Pirate fan), and while I hate to wish summer away, bring on football.
I'm also an L.A. Laker and Pittsburgh Penguin fan. No Shaq - no playoffs. NHL - no season. The Vikings are my salvation. Anyway, enough of that.

Are we gonna be as good on the field as we are on paper right now? (Barring injuries, etc.)

Greetings PENNSYPURPLE, It's nice to see another long time fan join the ranks of PP.O, the best fan site on the www!!!

It looks like we have a big year in store. I haven't been this positive about the outlook since the Purple People Eaters. Barring injuries - DESTINATION DETROIT.

Hey man I live in Smethport, PA. I'm pretty sure you've heard of it. It's awesome to see more people from such small towns in our area.

Welcome fellow Vikes fan! I live in the armpit of America, Clevesuck! I hate it here. You are right, there are quite a few Vikings fans around here.

I am going to the Cincy and Chicago game. You are more than welcome to join me and some of the other great members of this site as we march on to the Super Bowl.

Enjoy brother!

Hey there how are things at Zippo? I used to make sales calls in Bradford there, and at Case Knives when I lived in Erie. Great town, what is the name of the nice public golf course not to far outside Bradford? Beautiful place in the summer.

I would assume Buffalo is the shortest trip for you out of the three right?

Welcome onboard, and be prepared to loose lots of your free time now that you have found PP.O

Welcome and paper dosen't do justice to what has happened in this offseason my friend. Feel confident in knowing that the Vikes are going to be on a feeding frenzy in the NFL this year and quite probably years to come. GO VIKES!!!!


P.S. My dad used to take me to the Old Met back in the early 70's thats when the dream came alive for me.

There are two great golf courses in the area. The private country club is called Pennhills. The public course you are referring to is Pine Acres. And yeah, you're right, Buffalo is the shortest trip, about 1 hour and 15 minutes to Ralp Wilson Stadium. Zippo and Case are thriving right now. That's great knowing the connection you have to our little burgh.

Smethport?!?! Are you kidding me? We probably know each other. Are you originally a Hubber? Another Viking fan from the area! We should get a busload of us together and make the trip for a home game.
