Default GIVE AWAY for *TRUE* Vikings fans!

Hey all!

So, in February I was one of the 4 winners of a super bowl contest here on blowout. My prize was a redemption code for an auto. I redeemed the code the day I got the PM and just yesterday I got the card in. Me being a Packers fan, I have no desire to keep the card, but I would like to give it to a good home.

I will take entries until Wednesday, May 1st at 5:30 pm PACIFIC/WEST COAST time.

The card is a 2012 SPx Super Scripts auto of Matt Kalil. Not #d.

Here is the criteria:

1) Tell me who your favorite, all time Viking is.

2) Tell me your favorite Vikings memory. Maybe it was a late-minute win or the honoring of a HOFer.

3) Show me a pic of your Vikings pride. Could be you watching or attending a game, or a bit of your PC (could be cards, jerseys, photos, etc.)

4) As you are a rival of mine, I need to ask: Who is your favorite Viking with a super bowl ring? Is it Favre? Jennings? Someone else? Haha!

Of course, #4 is optional I am just poking fun!

Like the contest! Can't say I'm a true Viking fan, love the niners too much. But I thought question #4 was pretty clever!

1) Tell me who your favorite, all time Viking is. AHMAD RASHAD.. he played when i was 9- 15 yrs old... cant forget the Miracle Catch

2) Tell me your favorite Vikings memory. Maybe it was a late-minute win or the honoring of a HOFer. Was meeting/getting autographs of matt blair and fred mcneill when i was a kid at our youth football yr end dinner(every yr we had nfl players come speak)- still have the auto's 35 yrs later(pictured)

3) Show me a pic of your Vikings pride. Could be you watching or attending a game, or a bit of your PC (could be cards, jerseys, photos, etc.) pics below(few things i have)..majority of my viks cards are from 70s,80s, now as a dad, i focus on collecting for/with my son(his team is phins), .

4) As you are a rival of mine, I need to ask: Who is your favorite Viking with a super bowl ring? Is it Favre? Jennings? Someone else? Haha!...yea haha o-4, but hopefully get one soon. none of my favs have a ring

thanks, if im choose as winner, give the card to a kid on here who is a fan. i just wanted to rep the viks.

Im gona make an entry for my girlfriend, if thats okay with you, as shes just started collecting with me fairly recently but shes a huge vikings fan while im a seahawks fan.. This offseason has been fun stealing some of their key players

1. Her favorite viking is AP, but moss and culpepper are up there. Got her her first gu of moss recently and i was spoiled for a few days but whenever AP is on all i get is shushed lol

2. Ill go with my favorite memory of watching games with her last season. It isnt so much a moment as a collection of them starting with the 2nd bears game we went to her mothers who is also a big vikings fan however her step dad is a bears fan.. Interesting household eh? I dont like cutler cuz hes a primadonna and has displayed this throughout his career so there was a lot of trash talk leading up to it.. Mainly her stepdad going over the last games butt whoopin and how theyre gona do in the playoffs..... Lol. Lets just say he was pretty quiet throughout that game. Then the next couple games ending with that exciting packers game was a fun stretch and i found myself genuinely rooting for the vikings. Needless to say she cried after the 3rd packers game that eliminated them. It was a fun season though.

3. Ill try and find a pic of all the vikings stuff i got her for christmas and her daughter in the vikings sweat suit and ap jersey and striped bushy ball beenie we got her for christmas later this afternoon.

4. She would probably give ya the finger for that one. She likes favre though.. Go figure.

Thanks for all the entries!!! Keep them coming!!

Also, I forgot to mention that I am going to choosing my favorite top 10 entries and randoming them, to keep it as fair as possible. If there are less than 10 entries, then everyone has a shot!! Also, if Roc21 wins we will random again, but this time with his name removed from the random per his request.

Thanks again!

Keeping it very short and sweet to save you time
1 Blair Walsh (huge uga fan here!)
2 ap going crazy and getting 296 rushing yards in one game!
3 don't have any pics. Sorry and hope i still qualify
4 haha. I hope to change that question soon. He is what I picture it as though. Ap going crazy and Blair Walsh kicking the game winning field goal against the pats. I hate the patriots and I would love 2 of my favorite players to play a big role (edit : I wasn't alive but 1969 as the nfl champs. Haha

Thanks for the contest!

1. Fave Vike: Randy Moss
2. Best memory: Getting John Randle's auto after a game. He fooled a couple kids into thinking that Henry Thomas was actually Randle. I stood there as people ran towards Thomas and I told Randle "I know who you are".
3. Picture: I don't have a picture of them, but each Christmas I have gotten AP's Pro Bowl jersey's from each year he's made it. I'll be getting another one this year! That, or my autographed Favre Vike's photo
4. Ex-Vike with a ring: Matt Birk. I used to work with his dad (Matt is one year younger than me). Needless to say, after Matt signed his first big contract, his dad wasn't working with me anymore.

I realize I am late but I don't care if I win the Kalil Auto I have to show my horns>

Favorite Player:
Francis Asbury Tarkenton, said he would never make it, too small to slow. Left with every major passing record.
Chad Greenway, coached against him when he played high school, class act.

Favorite Moment:
John Randall inducted into HOF. He grew up dirt poor and was told he would never play college let alone pro football. Undrafted walk-on makes the Hall!

Viking Pride:
Signed full sized helmet with John Randle, Chris Carter, Randall Cunningham and Jake Reed.

Favorite player with a Ring:
Brett Favre-I grew hating him but his talent was undeniable. If Vikings player can learn to embrace him so can I.

Well folks, thank you ALL for the entries. I read, and appreciated every single one. Sadly, only 3 people qualified for the giveaway, because only 3 people had a picture to show me which helped validate their Viking fandom. Those 3 people were: AP4MVP, Roc21, and VikingsAllDay.

I did a random by ripping a piece of paper into 9 pieces and jumbling them up. Then I had my wife randomly pick out one piece of paper. The winner of this contest is: VikingsAllDay.

Congrats VAD. You will be PM'd shortly! I've gotta say, AP is a lot like Barry Sanders was: I loved to watch him play, but, hate when the Packers face off against him. Although I bleed green and gold, NO ONE can be a fan of football and not enjoy players like AP, RG3, etc etc.

Thanks again!
