PP.O name: Ltrey
Real name: Luke
Age: 21
Current City: York, Pa.
Hometown: Same!
Occupation: Student - Soon to be high school teacher


1) How did you choose your screen name?
I made it when I was about 12 years old and it sort of stuck with me....LT are my first two initials, and 3 is my favorite number. My old name was Ltrey33, but I was known as just Ltrey around here, so I shortened it.

Kinda like Beyonce or Britney, but without as much self-prostitution.

2) Ltrey, could you tell us a little about where you grew up and about your family?
I grew up in Central Pennsylvania. I'm the youngest of 4 kids, and I'm the only boy. I've heard lots of things men should never have to hear.

3) What type of student where you in High School? Did you play in any sports or where you involved with any school clubs and such?
I was a good kid in high school. I was in the honors societies and stuff like that. I was Student Council president my senior year too. I liked high school a good bit.

4) What did you do after High School?
College!


5)What was your first job?
I got a job at 14 wiring dog kennels for a fence company. It was GREAT fun.


6) When did you decide to be such a dedicated fan of the Minnesota Vikings?
I become a fan after the '97 season. My dad has been a Vikings fan all his life, and I started playing football that year, so I got more interested. I loved Brad Johnson, and I remember being excited about them drafting Randy Moss, even though I had no idea who he was. I just remember watching clips on ESPN of him in his high white socks and white shoes running past guys at Marshall.


7) Could you tell us one of your favorite memories that has to do with the Vikings or one of its past or present players, coaches, etc.
I went to a game in 2000 at the Dome and we stayed in the same hotel as the players. I met a lot of the guys, and I got Cris Carter and Gary Anderson's autographs. That was a cool night.

I also enjoyed meeting w/Webby, Badlands, Neph, Zeus, Prophet, WBL, Shock, and FutureMVC and a few others at the Rams game last year.


8}How did you come to find PP.O and what attracted you most to the site?
I have no idea...I signed up back in 2002 and I think it was the "Packer Fan Application" that drew me in. I thought it was hilarious.

9) What other sports teams do you follow?

I'm a big Duke fan and a big Boston Celtics fan. I also follow Michigan during college football a bit.

10) When you’re not on PPO what could you likely be found doing with your spare time?

Hrm...working, playing basketball, hanging out with my girlfriend, teaching at church and playing golf.

11) Do you say a special prayer before Vikings games?

"God grant me the serenity to not call Childress a fucking dumbass again."

12)Where do you watch away Vikings games?

Well...I watch both home and away at my house. But we have Hi-Def, so it's cool.
:P

13)What is your worst fear?
I would say drowning....that would not be a good way to go!

14) What type of hobbies do you enjoy?

Golf, basketball and reading.


15) What’s your favorite food?

Anything spicy!

16) Where are some of the places you’ve been, and where are some of your favorites.

I've been to Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, South Carolina, Nevada, Minnesota, Canada, Bermuda and the Bahamas.

My favorite place was Paradise Island in the Bahamas. I want to go back for my honeymoon.

17) What is one thing you've always wanted to do, but haven't done yet in your lifetime?

Get married. I know…I probably sound like a chick, but I always thought it would be cool.

18)If you could live anywhere where would it be?

Definitely South Carolina. I want to live somewhere where it’s warm most of the year and you can play golf A LOT.

19) Do you believe the Vikings will have their big day someday? When they do win the Super Bowl, what will be the first thing you think you will do?

I think the Vikings will have one eventually. I honestly think they have a good chance within the next 2-5 years if they can come up with a good – great quarterback. They have plenty of good, young talent on both sides of the ball. It will just come down to how we draft and our quarterback play now. There’s a novel idea, eh?

When it does happen, I will high five my dad.

Good to know you Ltrey. I'd like to high five you and your Dad after we win the Super Bowl too.

I'm glad you didn't pick the Steelers to root for...they have enough fans.

I feel your pain bro, I have 5 sisters and I am the only guy. I get along with all them pretty good.....the only one that is younger then me can be a real challenge though
;)

Growing up with all those sisters and no brothers did teach me to be able to understand chicks maybe a little better....which really helps sometimes

Get married. I know…I probably sound like a chick, but I always thought it would be cool.

LOL... well don't some of the people on here put you off.. if have a tolerant wife like Marrdro does then you'll be fine. Course you might just end up with one like Singer is going to get.... who runs the house and tells you what you can do ..
;D

Because he wants to be able to play golf in January without having to shovel snow first.
Seriously though, where in SC have you been?
And when you are ready to move here call me so that I can give you some pointers.
For that matter when you come down on your next golf trip let me know so that I can give some pointers as well.
Let me know if you need a fourth.

Where do you play in York?
I have always wanted to play York CC, I think I remember reading one time that it is an old Tillinghast or Seth Raynor course or some other famous old dead architect.
When I am up at the In-laws house in Reading I always think about it because we drive by York on our way in and out.

I look forward to hearing.

I don't envy you having all those big sisters. They must have been tormenting you.

It's a luck that you turned out levelheaded.

Haha....I've been a Celtic fan for a long time actually. I've had a Larry Bird poster in my room for as long as I can remember. It's nice to see them do well this year....I just hope they can finish the deal.

I don't hunt actually. I know a ton of people that do though. In high school we always had a day off of school for the start of hunting season.

And yes, it is deer heaven. I live around farms/fields, so I see them quite a bit. They are a major road hazard though, lol.
