In this edition of Purple People Apparel, we throw you a hail mary (football reference!) and bring to you not clothing from creepy ass Vikings fans, but an entire damn HOUSE. And it all started with the simple picture you see above ReTweeted from Brian Robison's Twitter account with the message "Hope I can live up to those names around me."
Yeah, there's plenty wrong with that to start.
First, hey, nothing against my now favorite white guy on the team, but Brian Robison isn't exactly in the same class as someone like John Randle. That's not to say he's a bad player, at all, but ... come on. Here's a fence, painted purple mind you, with the names Randle and Jim Finks on it, and throughout the entire Vikings history of names you could have added to your fence you add ... Brian Robison? Over #69? And Kevin Williams? And Chris Hovan for that matter? What the hell is going on? [Edit: Upon further research of his photos, the guy has more names all over the place. Still, seems weird having Robison next to Randle, right?)
Well, the fence is just the tip of the iceberg. Once you see the rest of this house that apparently belongs to a guy named Diggz19(yearoldz?IsureDo!) on Twitter, you kind of understand:
.................................... ........... .... .................... That shit is wild.
To be fair, I can in no way consider myself to be that big of a Vikings fan. I mean, clearly. I own maybe four of five jerseys mostly on accident. I don't really have anything in my house that's even purple. So kudos to this guy for being a big enough fan to go out and get this all done at his house ... I guess? I couldn't, largely because my wife would kick my testicles into my throat and largely because I have other sports passions that take precedent over the Vikings. Do I want a man cave tastefully decorated in my most serious sports teams gear? YOU BET YOUR ASS I DO. With a pool table and a wet bar. Yeeeaaaaahhh ...
But ... like what do you do during the offseason? Or during a 6-10 year when the team sucks donkey farts? You have to go home after an ass whooping and park your car next to your purple house and be happy? I can only think of the times when I've watched the Vikings get fisted in their belly button and the LAST thing I want is to have any type of association with those dicks. There is no WAY I could go home to a house like that and be cool with it. I'd burn the shit down after a loss, then I'd be pissed because my team sucks AND I don't have a house to sleep in anymore. Terrible scenario.
But, hey, at least he owns a house. The uniqueness of it all has to really help the resale value, I would imagine. Right? AND! You just know this guy throws a hell of a party.
and im not 19. 19 is a combo of my first two favorite vikes, Fran and TK
actually im 40 and ex service member who loves his state and country oh yea and the vikes
funny, its just how i support my team and as far as whose on the fence, its my fence of fame and i didnt ask for anyones votes. this aint the nflnetwork top 10 list. whether u like it or not i really dont care and i aint selling so dont really care about its resale value, mn economy already f'd that up. show hate if u want to,its kinda funny
As a Vikings fan, that is still horrific to me in an unspeakable amount of ways.
I thought only Packers fans would do something like that... egads.
I saw the fence pictures and had the same reaction to the choice of names added. You think they were added right before just to get a player's attention? Because when they talk to you on twitter it means they care and you're BFF. I think I saw another one from this guy with Erin Henderson on it. The guy is a great personality and maybe has potential, but as far as contributions to the Vikings there's no lasting legacy yet.
I still think his house is pretty cool in some ways, although I questions his choice in pictures w/ a giant poster of Brett and Chilly in the black SUV. I bet he was one of the guys who drove down to Mississippi.
What is a man cave called when it belongs to a female? I want one of those. No pink.
@Diggz Awesome, thanks. The details make it.
@Diggz Where at? Link?
@Diggz Also, I'm curious as to the image painted on the right side of the fence in the picture of the front of the house. I can't make it out. Is it like an old Vikings logo? It kind of almost looks like the old Cleveland Browns mascot or something.
@Diggz But seriously though, what's with the Favre-Chilly-SUV movie poster? I mean... REALLY?!?
@Diggz Sounds good enough. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
@Diggz No hate on this end. We were more surprised than anything because we knew we could never do this at our house. I just hope you don't live next to a Packers fan that tried the same thing. THAT would be the worst!
@Diggz Although I highly doubt it... huge props to you for posting here if that's really your house!
@CollegeWolf No kidding... I'm a vikings fan but I would never do that to a poor home. Especially when most seasons are spent losing. I would hate looking at that thing everyday.
@Qommie oh man i didnt catch that picture from the suv, how creepy. who the hell picks that moment to be a fan of? 'my team just bent over backwards to suck 39 year old dong because we're so fed at quarterback we'll take anyone! weeeeee pride!!!!' sure a stellar moment in the franchise. i'd make a poster of the roof collapse well before the suv. nice catch though
@Qommie Pretty sure it's just called a woman cave and all of those innuendos that go along with it are well deserved.
@CollegeWolf im not that computer savvy but if u check my timeline on twitter u can see it
@PJD its a a cutout of korey stringer
@CollegeWolf its not chilly in the SUV driving we photo shopped Chilleys dumbass out of there and used the Colonels image.trust its a true parody tryn to get Chilly out of MN
@CollegeWolf appreciate that
@MikeFromWinnipeg I don't know what I'd do first, destroy the house or kill myself.
@PJD I was trying to avoid the vulgarity and class up the joint.
@Diggz That was like the nicest compliment many of us have ever received on this blog, the internet, or in real life. Thanks!
@CollegeWolf @Diggz CW is also a moron: https://twitter.com/#!/PJDiaries/status/91562638869405747
@Diggz What's your Twitter name? Did I miss you posting it somewhere?
@Diggz Hahahaha no way dude?!? That is crazy, but AWESOME! Epic super huge props to you for doing that. Wow. Amazing.
no i havent had it appraised but we got something in the mail after all that mortgage bs and it was devalued by about 50,000, and this was well before the paint went up. so i magine its worth about 100 bucks but to me its priceless
@Diggz Really? The item that's white on top with a yellow bottom? I see the (elusive) trophy on the other side, I just couldn't make that out.
@Diggz Hahahaha that's actually pretty funny. Good for you man. I gotta say, I'm now quite impressed by all this and the fact that you came here and are posting about it! Awesomeness.
@CollegeWolf the warning label says "from the creators of fire chillie hire willie comes a love story" i know kinda corny but we had fun makin this
@Diggz Fo sho dude!
@CollegeWolf I would probably try to work it out so that the house & I could drink the koolaid at the same time.
