Welcome to the Purple Pain!
We are an online community of Viking Fans that enjoy discussing a wide variety of topics, but is primarily focused on the Minnesota Vikings football team. I'd like to think of our group as a "little family" of sorts. We may squabble at times (usually over small things - ) but we have a sense of connection to one another that transcends any minor disagreements we may have. One of the things I've always thought was interesting about Viking fans is their intense loyalty to a team, regardless of the fan's geographical location. We have Viking 'brothers' and 'sisters' spread across the globe from all age groups and walks of life. In an effort to create a more 'intimate' atmosphere at Purple Pain, I'm asking (entirely optional) for members to share a little bit about themselves in this thread. Feel free to answer only the items that you are comfortable with, and as always, humor is appreciated and encouraged! I'll start with a generic 'template' that others can use to tell about themselves, but feel free to include more (or less) information at your preference.
