Proud contributor to Daily Norseman. A lifelong Minnesota resident and sports fan. (I went to college and worked in Fargo for seven years, but that's still close enough to MN.) I love catching Twins, Wild, and Timberwolves games whenever possible, but I'm borderline maniacal when it comes to the Vikings. I'm the proud father of two little "Vikeling" daughters. Our first was fittingly born hours before the 2013 NFL draft and another that was born just before the 2015 bye week. I enjoy my day job in software, but I love being able to vent about my teams and make crude attempts at humor on the side. I also play and watch a ton of soccer, but please don't tell my fellow football fans. Follow me on Twitter: @eric_j_thompson
