We Thank You

Yesterday was one of those days that life was so busy that I didn’t get a chance to update the blog until very late at night.

Yesterday was also the day we, despite having no updates, crushed our single-day record for traffic to this site.

Wow!

There are many reasons for this.  First, draft-mania and the presence of my mock draft interests a lot of folks to stop in breifly before jumping to the next mock draft they can find.  Second, other awesome sites and friends are linking to us on a fairly regular basis.  Third, despite my own unwillingness to get sucked into Facebook and Twitter (watch the latest South Park episode if you haven’t already, funny stuff) some of our “Powers That Be” have been working to keep those refreshed and use those Social Networking sites as a way of generating interest.

Fourth, and most importantly, we have the best group of readers and commenters of any Vikings site around they (for some odd reason) keep coming back every day and leaving comments.  Those folks, above all else, are the reason that we keep this thing rollin’ and keep this thing growin’.

So, thank you all very much!

    Vikingsgab> Victoriusvikes.webs.com> any other Viking site 🙂

  2. Coolio says:

    Adam what do you
    mean we. It only you.

  3. bigjohnny84 says:

    Adam, the first thing that made a VG believer out of me was your willingness to go the extra mile on research and your “hands down the best” interacting with us viewers. I really enjoy that part. No other sites do that, except Coolio who is pretty good at interacting.

  4. c.carterhof says:

    Hey Johnny, good to see you’re back.

    And Adam, you’re welcome. And thank you my friend.

    • bigjohnny84 says:

      Great to be back CC. Like they say, you dont miss something till it’s gone. Not being able to comment was gettin to me but what the hell, nothing 110 bucks couldnt cure. I would love to get my hands on just one of the jerkoffs that spread those virus’s. And that’s not an idle threat to those dbags I assure you.

  5. Coolio says:

    I kindof like replying to peoples comments. It let’s people know that you care about what they have to say

  6. coolio says:

    I’m sure Adam does too

  7. Purple Charlie says:

    Adam, To be honest, You guys make it easy to come back. As Johnny said, You go the extra mile and it is most appreciated…

    There’s also a list a mile long of all the readers on this blog that are the best…

  8. SupaScout says:

    You know Adam. I hate to burst your Bubble, but your number may be a little hyper-inflated as I usually show up about three times a day. It’s worth it though!

  9. coolio says:

    I show up about 5-10 times……………..

    I enjoy reading Adam’s work espicially on days with nothing to do

  10. wtfvikesfan says:

    Spielman said tonight on P.A’s Viking show that Vikings will take BEST PLAYER AVAILABLE. He stressed this many times. Doesn’t matter what position the player plays he will contribute within then next 2 years years, is what Vikings are looking for. SOunds like Vikings will be drafting a QB at round one to me.

    • bigjohnny84 says:

      You are correct wtf. Thats been Speilmans plan since he’s been with Vikes, BPA. And it’s worked well so far. (Fingers crossed)

  11. Ole says:

    Adam, good job on the website. Keep putting out the good product and people will continue to visit this web site. You deserve a raise, pay yourself two bananas a week from now on

    plus, you have fine contributers to this website, my old buddy Krug Jr comes mind.

    also, your website is a means for Jerkpepper, Hoppy and Viking J to externalize their mayhem via verbage and not commit physical crimes against others. Can’t say the same for Tony Pants, he’s a hardcore criminal

  12. Dan K. says:

    This is the best Vikings site out there, it’s going to be a great year for VG!

  13. Tomb... says:

    Hmmmm…

    All these ringing endorsements for Mr. Warwas, while undoubtedly deserved, could be destructive. We don’t want him getting soft.

    Adam, I’ve seen you dangle your participle on more than one occasion. Let’s try to stem the flow on that, shall we?

    And remember to never start a sentence with the word “and.” It’s sloppy and unprofessional.

    With our help, we can build you better, stronger, faster.

    Report like the wind, my friend. Report like the wind.

    • B. Grant says:

      The random thoughts just keep on comin’!

      If you ever catch me dangling that thing, Tomb, let me know immediately. And I really mean it.

      You gonna follow my Twins this year? Could be exciting!

      • Tomb... says:

        Good morning Coach! Baseball makes my participle quite flaccid.

        While I won’t watch any games, because they are somewhat mind-numbing, I’ll keep an eye on the stats.

        I see they are 3-1? Sweet, only 5,231 more games to go!

      • B. Grant says:

        You would mock the national pastime of America? May your participle be forever flaccid! (No wait, sorry, I didn’t really mean that.)

        The mental and physical confrontation between a pitcher, his catcher and his fielders with the menacing, lumber-waving hitter may be among the greatest in all of sports. It is a shame you cannot enjoy that.

        Now that’s not to say that there isn’t equal sporting joy derived from a pancake block or a linebacker driving a RB onto his backside after being taken airborne. One never tires of those moments either.

        Yet I am sure you know Tiger’s first round score in the Masters! Sad.

      • B. Grant says:

        By the way, Dangling One, did you ever rightfully acknowledge my never-say-die loyalty to our local boys of summer who overcame a 7-game deficit last fall to tie the division lead on the last day and subsequently claim the crown in game 163 (with a corresponding choking display by the team know as the Tiger)? I don’t recall it if you did.

      • Tomb... says:

        Oh that’s right! You, my good sir, are due $20 worth of Tomb Wisdom.

        That truly is the gift that keeps on giving…much more so than a jelly of the month club voucher.

        So ask me something, and I will grace said question with my unique brand of intelligentsia.

        **caveat: don’t ask me about women…NOBODY can figure them out.**

    • Robert Salamon says:

      Hi folks,here in the space coast we look around for helpful discourse,EASY..its good thanks.r

  14. Fran the Man says:

    You the man Adam. You gave all us old AV’ers some place to hang when the evil faux AV sprang up and tried to gobble up our souls!

    Not to go to deep here. . .

  15. Jerkpepper says:

    Facebook is horrible and Myspace is terrible!!! I think Bones invented one and HOPPY invented the other. Now if Hank Baskett were to come up with a social networking site I would probably join, but not if Billy McMuffin did. When would he have time since he is busy making McMuffins now? The most horrible and terrible trade in the history of the NFL.

  16. Coolio says:

    Forgive me but who the hell is Hank basket and Billy mcmuffin

    • B. Grant says:

      NOOOOO, Coolio, don’t ask!! (Too late) A full description and tirade regarding a trade-gone-bad in the mind of one Viking fan is now likely to be delivered yet again. Remember, you asked.

    • Purple Charlie says:

      Cools, Your feeding the fire my friend!!! lol…

      Coach, He just didn’t know, he’s innocent…

  17. krugjr says:

    good news, Adam…….even when I miss a day or two, I read most everything cuz there are many great comments by guys that know what they’re talkin’ about……even when they don’t know what they’re talkin’ about, it’s usually damn funny…..so keep “stirrin’ it up”…….and we’ll chippin’ in! now if we could just get Ole to live in central time!

    GO VIKES!!!!!

  18. krugjr says:

    keep chippin’ in

  19. Fran the Man says:

    Hey, I just discovered something for all you golf fans.
    You can watch the Masters live at;
    http://www.masters.com/en_US/console/console.html?ts=1270831468254&video=ac&syn=&db=false&ref=www.masters.com/en_US/index.html&alt=

    In HD no less!

  20. Jerkpepper says:

    Seriously, how horrible is Bones at blogging? I bet he lives in his parents house still. He is almost as bad at blogging as HOPPY is at loading rail cars. HORRIBLE!!!!! I’M THE WIZ AND NOBODY BEATS ME!!!!!!

  21. Viking John says:

    Good day for the gophers. They will no longer be beaten by the Fighting Sioux. We were washed down the river by the State Board of Higher Education. Sad day people.
    Go Vikes

  22. coolio says:

    I’m already watching Fran
