It has come to my attention that I bother some people with my anti viking stance. I know I can be an ass I can be over the top, most of it is in jest and meant to be taken as a heel popping off but I think if I explain with some examples why I dislike like viking fans. 1st example not sure of the year but it was the Monday after a Packer win at the metronome with Brett at QB. I stopped at the grocery store on the way home from a sand volleyball league game, it was the Cub store in Elk River. I was driving my pristine restored 1974 International Scout it had two Packer static cling Packer stickers on the back quarter panels one on the front windshield and a Packer logo in the receiver hitch. I went in and got the things my wife requested and when I came out my Scout was keyed up and down front to back, the cling stickers were removed the receiver logo was smashed and all laying on the front driver seat. I called the police and when they showed up the cop said evidently they do not like the Packers. 2nd example I was leading a 20 person saw team in the St. Croix state park after a big blowdown of trees we were clearing trails and roads. We ate breakfast and dinner in the crap hole restaurant in Banning Junction. The second night the manager came to our table I was wearing my Packer hat and he went off about the Minnesota tax payers paying for a Packer fans meals. I kept my cool because I was representing the DNR so I kept it inside. He said if he had known he was cooking for a Packer fan he would have spit in my food. I brushed that off, the next morning the waitress comes out and takes the crew order I ordered last and the saw the waitress put a checkmark by my order. I told her to cancel the order and told the crew to saddle up we drove south to Tobie's in Hinkley and because we did not have a account set up I paid for breakfast for 20 people. Needless to say the restaurant did not get the revenue from having 21 people eat 2 meals a day. Another example involved my family we were at a halloween party at a family friends house it was a big party probably 50 or more people there. My son who was 8 at the time wore his shoulder pads and my Favre jersey he wanted to dress up as Brett Favre. I am hanging and chatting by the bar in the basement and I went into the room where the pool table was to check and see what the kids were up to and there was a grown man in my kids face giving him crap in an aggressive way beyond good nature joking. I did not punch the guy or curse him out just explained that he is going after an 8 year old kid. When the Packers won the Super Bowl we went to Green Bay for the ceremony at Lambeau, my son was starting on the JV basketball team and he had an excused absence from school to go with me to Green Bay. The next day he came home right after school rather than go to practice, he was upset. The coach suspended him for two games because he went to watch that Packer garbage. I was president of the youth football league and our youth football organization was the high school quarterback club's biggest sponsor the basketball coach was an assistant on the football team as well. I called the head coach and explained the situation and it was quickly remedied. Beyond that I wear a Packer hat when I am not at work rare is the week that I don't get a comment when I go into a business as a customer, I have had some very rude people at times. One example I went to the pharmacy drive thru to pick up some meds, the woman said she could refuse to serve me for any reason and she should not help me because I was a Packer fan, I thought it was good nature ribbing and said If I were you I would hate me too, she got pissy and called me an *******. I am a big boy with thick skin I enjoy friendly banter but there is never a time when you have to wonder if the people are somewhat serious. In a nutshell this is why I have little to no respect for viking fans and why I will throw crap out there.
