All-Time Favorite Viking : John Randle, his trash talkin on the field is classic.

Have you ever been to a Vikings game? If so, how many? : 2, 3 years ago when they got smoked by Cincy, and 4 years ago on monday night when they lost to the colts by a fg with 3 seconds left.

What got you into the Vikings : I met Warren Moon when he was playing for the Vikes, got an autograph. Super friendly guy.

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : RB Micheal Bennett, maybe he didnt suck totally, had a couple decent years for us. Living in big 10 counrty seen him play a lot vs IU, Purdue, etc. Loved his speed and vision, thought he'd be great with the Vikes.

And yes, I liked the Williamson pick at the time. And I thought Tice completly used him wrong route-wise. But he sucked, and I wont comment anymore about that. :-)

Age : 19

Location : New York, South of Buffalo

All-Time Favorite Viking : Cris Carter, Always been a Fan of the Wide Receiving position and when i started liking the vikings he was the main WR.

Have you ever been to a Vikings game? If so, how many? : I think ive been too around 4 or 5 games. 2 Regular Season and 3 Preseason. 4 of them were in Buffalo but one Summer I made it out to see the Vikings in the Metrodome for a preseason game against the Chargers, I had tickets right near the Tunnel so i got to see all the players come out, I almost caught gloves from a player but they were thrown to short. This was the season after Moss got traded so Culpepper was still there.

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : Probably last year, When Adrian broke the record for most yards in a game. It was just fun to see it and knowing how special he could become.

What got you into the Vikings : When I was little my aunt would watch my brother and cousin and I. We would play Tecmo Superbowl on the NES and They were always the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers, So my cousin told me to be the Minnesota Vikings because they were a good team and Ive liked them ever since.

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : I would have to say Troy Williamson, Just after trading moss. I wanted a guy who could replace him and then i saw Troy's speed it made me want the vikings to draft him, But I also wanted to trade up for Braylon Edwards. I was happy we drafted him in 2005 but now Im wishing we didnt, atleast we get a 6th for him haha.

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : I liked the playoff game at Lambeau in 2005.

What got you into the Vikings : My dad, he's been a Viking fan as long as I can remember and had more influence on me than my mom (A Packer fan).

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : Any win against the Packers. I was at one probably 6 years ago when Bennett ripped off like a 85 yarder or something against them, and that was bad ass.

What got you into the Vikings : Grew up in WI, but on the boarder, and while everyone was cheering for the Pack, I was the sole guy rocking the Purple People Eaters.

Location: SE Minnesota right along the Wisconsin border and about an hour north of the Iowa border.

All-time favorite Viking: Randy Moss

Have you ever been to a Vikings game?: no, I don't have the means to and my dad is too cheap to buy tickets.

Favorite Vikings game: Moss mooning the Pack.

What got you into the Vikings?: My dad is a big Vikings fan, and I watched all the games with him when I was young, and it just grew from there.

Favorite draft pick who ended up sucking: Either Erasmus James or Troy Williamson. I thought James would be a stud, and I really liked Williamson's potential. Injuries were part of what derailed James's career, and Williamson just didn't have the hands, I don't know if it was concentration, small hands, or what, he just couldn't catch.

What got you into the Vikings : Randall Gene Moss.

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : Michael Bennett. I met him when he came down for the NBA All-Star Game. Real standup guy, helluva nice guy.

I was watching Vikings Weekly sometime last year and they had a segment on how Pat & Kevin didn't like the nickname "The Williams Wall". They had some sort of fan contest to come up with a new name. The winner was the "William Wrecking Crew". The guys gave the winner an autographed jersey & they said that they really liked the name since they are big WWE fans.

Not really saying anything, i just think about it everytime i hear someone call them the "Williams Wall".

Age: 30

Location: St. Paul suburbs

All-Time Favorite Viking(s): Randle McDaniel, Joey Browner, John Randle, Antoine Winfield, Jared Allen (yes, he has already endeared himself to me as one of my favorites)

Been to Vikings Games?: Yes, plenty. My father-in-law has season tickets (sec 131, row 5, seats at the end of the row) ~ i get to go to at least 1 game a year, but i have been able to get to 2 or more each year for the last 2-3 years.

Favorite Vikes Game: 1998 (?) Monday Night game in the rain at Lambeau. Cunningham, Carter, Reed, & Moss tore up the GB defense. I was living in Madison at the time & lived with very upset Packer Backers.... one of them threw a shoe at the tv... priceless!

What got you into the Vikings: Birth!

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended Up Sucking: None... but man, that 2005 Draft was Fantastic!!!!

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : 2005 Playoff game at Lambeau

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : Onterrio Smith. He was so talented, too bad he was such a moron.

Crazy_Chris
01-01-2009, 05:32 PM
Eh well as you all can see my name is Chris, I am 21, and I currently live in Locust Grove Virginia. My all-time favorite Viking player would have to be the great Alan Page. Unfortunately I was not alive to be able to watch him play but after watching John Randle and seeing how dominating he was I can only imagine what kind of nightmare Alan Page was for opposing offenses. Also Adrian Peterson is quickly moving up the ranks of the all-time favorite Vikings.

I actually have never been fortunate enough to go to a vikings game yet but I will one day. I don't think I can narrow it down to 1 favorite vikings game but the three games would be the playoff game @ lambeau in 2004 and Adrian Peterson's 200+ yard game against the bears in Chicago, and of course Adrian Peterson's record breaking performance against the Chargers.

What got me into the Vikings is just the fact I am from Minnesota. My favorite draftpick that ended up sucking would probably be Micheal Bennet he had a good start and got me excited for his potential. However we all know how the story ends with him.

Are "Vikings are my second favorite team" fans ok?


33, born & raised in RI (it's a state on the east coast ;))

Favorite Player: Joey Browner - should be in the HOF

Never been to a Vikes game. Never even been to the state. Not really sure how or why I decided I even liked the Vikings, to be honest. Growing up as a Pats fan you pretty much had to have a second favorite if you wanted to have a dog in the fight in post-season play, I guess. Not quite sure how that became the Vikings for me . . . must be a masochist.

Favorite game has got to be Randy's mimed mooning at Lambeau.

I'm really hoping to see Minnesota get over the hump this year. The Chilly & Sage combo doesn't really thrill me very much, though.

How I got into the Vikings: When i was in 3rd grade I turned on the TV and saw this little guy running all over the place chucking the ball around. I just thought that little guy better run. Been a fan every since

Favorite game: When AD broke the rushing record or the MNF game against Green Bay in 1998 When the Vikings drafted Randy Moss I turned at my buddy and said Now we have Rice and Carter. He said No way this guy will be even close to Jerry Rice.

Favorite draft pick who ended up sucking: My worst draft moment was when Dennis Green Passed on Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks for Korey Stringer and Derrick Alexander. I couldnt believe it I was in shock.

6. Do not allow your sig to grow excessively in size. A single 500x125 image should be plenty of room.
a) Signatures will also be limited to ten LINES of additional text (excluding the image). A quote will equal one line of text (not including the text inside).
b) You may only use ONE image tag in your signature.


Welcome to the fun!

I am also looking to go to that game this year. I only live 3 hours from Cleveland so It would be worth the trip to see Adrian. I saw them in 2006 against the Buffalo Bills.

Have been to two Vikings games, my last one was in 2001 I believe.

My favorite Vikings victory is any one over the Packers. Literally, any single one.

What got me into the Vikings: The first year I ever followed football was the 98 season. Randy was a rookie, and I feel in love with him. I was like 8 at the time, and I watched every second of every game, and memorized stats. That magical, yet tragic season got me into the Vikes.

Favorite draft pick that sucked: Troy Williamson. He makes me sad...

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : Vikings vs Bears in 1994 at the Dome. Vikings won in OT on a 65 yard TD pass from Warren Moon to Cris Carter. Probably the greatest game in any sport that I have ever attended.

What got you into the Vikings : My uncle. We would go visit him in Minnesota every year when I was kid. While we were there he would always take me to Vikings games.

Welcome! Look forward to hearing from you. As for the Carter/Moon game, here's a little present for you.

Favorite Vikings: Currently...Jared Allen, Jimmy Kleinsasser, Antoine Winfield, and Chad Greenway

Location: Originally from Duluth. Now I live in West Richland, WA

My favorite Vikings victories were the 2 victories over the Packers last year. A close call would have been the San Fran game last year. It was nice to see the Vikings pull-off the type of play that in the past was normally executed against them.

What got me into the Vikings: I too began following the Vikings really closely beginning with the 98 season.

Favorite draft pick that sucked: Tough to beat the entire 2005 draft class as a whole (Williamson, Erasmus James, Marcus Johnson, Dustin Fox, Ciatrick Fason, C.J. Mosley, and Adrian Ward), but I still think Demetrius Underwood has to rank as one of the worst NFL draft picks ever regardless of team.

Have you ever been to a Vikings game? No, alas. Living in FL and DC has made getting up to see a game very difficult. :/

Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : Being young, I'll have to say the '05 Wild Card victory against the Packers.

What got you into the Vikings : My father. Despite living in Tampa nearly all my life, he imparted his love of the Vikings onto me at a young age and I've been hooked since.

All-Time Favorite Viking : Robert Smith
Have you ever been to a Vikings game? If so, how many? : Yes, 9 (5-0 in the regular season, 2-1 in the pre season and 1-0 in the postseason. Only loss was a pre season at dallas in 08).
Favorite Viking Game of All-Time : This is tough there are a lot I enjoyed. I'll have to go with either the 2009 playoff game Vs Dallas(got tix for my bday) or the 98 drubbing of the redskins, which was my first vikings game.

What got you into the Vikings : My uncle is a huge fan and was one of my role models growing up. and Robert Smith used to visit me when I spent 3 months in the hospital after heart surgery when I was 5.

Favorite Draft Pick Who Ended up Sucking (explain) : Dmitrius Underwood, because I find the whole ordeal with him humorous.

I still have my foam Vikings Brick that were common in Mn households during the Wade Wilson era. The brick was thrown at my TV a lot this season. :)

All-Time Fav Vikings: Anthony Carter, John Randle

Fav Viking Game: a) '87 Divisional Game vs. 49ers- Prior to this game the niners were my fav team. AC and our O outduelled Rice and Taylor. :)
b) it was in either '96 or '97 when we played at NYG and came back late in the 4th. Multiple scores in a couple of minutes. One of the coolest comebacks I've still ever seen...

What got me into the Vikes: My uncle was a huge niners fan and brought me to several games when I was a young kid. At the ripe age of 11 I bandwagoned tomy homestate team after the '87 playoff game where we finally beat the niners in a clutch/pressure game.

Draft pick that I thought would turn out well, but didn't: How about Kenechi Udeze? He was a stud coming out of USC (18 or 19 sacks in senior yr). He never quite lived upto that. Good at run D, just never became a presence off the edge.
The Daunte pick confused me as well. Picking Kearse may have given us the edge in '99, '00 and beyond...
I was one of the few ppl who didn't like the AP pick. He's currently one of my top 3 fav vikings now, but I wanted Pat Willis at the time. We'll see how time fares on their careers...

All-Time Favorite Viking: Randy Moss

Never been to a game, plan on going once i finish school.

Favorite Vikings Game: 1998 Thanksgiving Day vs. Cowboys.

What got me into the Vikes: I saw Moss play on TV when he was @ Marshall and decided I wanted to follow him in the pros. Became a lifelong Vikings from draft day on.

Favorite Pick that ended up being a bust: Only been following the draft for the past 6-7 years, but I was pretty high on their pick of Marcus McCauley a few years back, liked his size and athleticism for a 3rd round CB. Also have to mention the Williamson pick, for obvious reasons.

Been around the forums a fair bit the last few months and never really posted anything but thought I'd just make it known there is another Vikes fan out here.

All Time Favorite Viking : Henderson, Winfield, and Cris Carter

Favorite Game : Gotta go with the playoff win against the Packers back in 2005?

Been to a game : I have been to a few. I try to make it out whenever the play Washington. Im planning on going to a game in Minnesota this upcoming season.

What got me to root for the good guys: Cris Carter, enough said.

Favorite Draft Pick that Busted : I was a MASSIVE Troy Williamson guy. I had him being a bigger, faster Chad Johnson/Ocho Cinco.
