Inaugural Post! (break out the purple champagne)

So.  Welcome to the Virginia Viking, a stop on the information superhighway to get one dislocated Minnesota Vikings fan's outlook on our Beloved Purple.  

I had meant to launch this blog this weekend, concurrent with the upcoming NFL draft.  If you've found this site, you probably already know that Zygi has traded away our first-round pick and both of our third-round picks in exchange for star defensive end Jared Allen.  The Kansas City Chiefs will almost assuredly have the more exciting draft this weekend.  That's all ok though, as we will almost assuredly have the most exciting defensive line this season. 

Alas, that's old (but exciting!) news.  

Earlier this offseason, I stopped by Pacifist Viking, and found out that the wicked witch is dead.  That's right -- Brett Farve retired.  Then he almost un-retired.  Now, he's on the cover of Madden '09.  How frustrating is that?  Really.  As long as I've been a Vikings fan, that man has been the nemesis personified.  I thought that we could all begin to move on, but no.  At least the Madden Curse isn't directed toward the Purple Jesus this season.

Anyhow.  There will be much more to come.  For now, welcome to the Virginia Viking!
