Born in Anoka, Minnesota in 1957. Moved to So Cal in 1966. Started watching football with my pops in 1968 and became a lifelong Viking fan in 1969 when Joe Kapp was flinging his "wounded ducks" around the field.
I have six brothers and all bleed purple...as do my four kids. I've lived in the Twin Cities as an adult and I've gone to Viking games all over the U.S.
The Vikings have taught me more about heartbreak and recovery than all the women I've ever known....but I keep coming back for more. It is this suffering, however, that qualifies me for the critical comments I make.
