First a backround story...

If you don't know, I went down to arizonia a few weeks ago to get ready for my high school's golf tryouts. One afternoon, however, we went down to the mexico. This was the third time for me there, and teh first two times I purchased fake watches. Although really cool, the rarely lasted longer than a month. so this time i vowed to my parents i wouldnt buy a watch. but then the question of what should i buy comes into mind. the top sellers in mexico are teh blankets (cool but don't really need blanket), leather wallets (don't need one since getting a Vikings one for christmas), and cowboy hats (i'm not a cowboy...). so after viewing store after store nothing caught my eye. Walking into one store, I saw something that caught my eye. It was behind these cowboy hats under a table. It was a real Viking helmet. real metal riveted together with two real horns. It's very cool. so I purchased it for 30$, (after bargining it down from 75...silly mexicans). Because it couldnt fit into my suitcase, i had to ship it to my house up in wisconsin, and if finally came!!!! i plan to wear it for every game, draft, and other important viking events.

here is a link that i found. It looks just like my helmet I purchased for only 30$

Spencer's sell them around here. Usually around halloween.

Nice helmet though. I almost bought one myself, but I like the ones they have at the Renaissance Fair in Shokapee, MN.
