    Thats Syd, he's a friend of Randys from the Viking days.

    Randy used to always jump into the stands where he was after TDS.

    He was hanging out with the guys from WEEI before the game, evidently he is a VERY large man.

    Man. And I thought he was just some crazy dude that wouldn't let Randy go!

    It looked like he was trying to pull him into the stands and run away with Randy.

    LOL, yeah, now that you mention it. That was pretty kool though that a Viking fan cheering for one of our players and team to win. Maybe we should keep him around for Randy.

    I agree. I would love to know if that Bubble screen, that Randy never runs, was run as a chance to get him into his arms.

    Yeah, makes sense. I think Randy "had" something to do with it anyway. JMO. If having Syd here or on the road with us and it make Randy happy, then I'm all for it. I think we may have room for another mascot. LOL. Humm, wonder if he can play safety or an O-line position also? Guy's a mountain.:eek:

    It's hard to let someone go when you have their name tattooed on your arm!

    Randy said he had asked to run the play, we saw Welker and Stallworth run that play MANY times last year.

    Either way, this makes for a GREAT story that I have not seen anywhere else - It's a PatsFans EXCLUSIVE!

    Cool story...I was wondering what many others were ("Is that dude trying to pull Moss into the stands or something?!?").

    The real question for me now is: what did Randy say to Syd about why he was no longer with the Vikings? I'm not about to buy a Vikings book to find out but I'd definitely like to know.

    I actually met him while in Canton. That guy is a lunatic (in a funny way though). By far and away the biggest Viking fan I have ever met. I got a good crack out of the fact that he was in the stand watching the Pats.

    To let you know how much of a lunatic this guy is. He is Canadian (from Winnipeg). A locomotive operator for one of the National train lines in Canada. Has been a Viking season ticket holder for ever and makes the 6 hour drive from Winnipeg to Minneapolis to attend these games. That is dedication.

    He was at the All Pro tent before and after the game, nice guy. He is into his alter ego and he is a VERY large guy. He came to the game to see Randy Moss, Moss got him the seats at the front of the endzone just so he would have a chance to do the jump. He's got a tattoo on his arm for every venue he has visited to see Randy Moss, he also has a Moss autograph tattooed on his arm.

    I guess that there will be a Pats logo on his arm soon enough.

    That was so random but pretty entertaining. Randy's jump was a little short and the guy singlehandedly pulled him up into the stands.

    The reasons why Moss is no longer with the Vikings?

    1) The popular media and public take was that Moss was a malcontent for his last year in Minnesota (ie walking to the locker room in the final seconds of the Redskins game) and the team wanted to get rid of him.

    2) Red McCombs (the previous owner of the Vikings) wanted to trade Moss because he could get value for him from the Raiders (1st round pick (7th overall) + 7th round pick, and Napolean Harris)...also he wanted to shed some money costs because he was selling the team.

    3) But the biggest reason...one that alot of people dont know? Three words...Daunte Culpepper's ego. Culpepper was in Mike Tice's ears (the head coach at the time) to get rid of Moss because the QB wanted to be his own man. Management relented because Culpepper was the future of the franchise.

    I remember at the time losing quite a bit of respect for Daunte for him pushing Randy out of the team. Its quite sad that Daunte didn't see that he could easily share the spotlight of the team with others who quite frankly are far more talented than his gunslinging arm throwing self is. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed Daunte for how good he was at throwing the ball down the field. I would never put him in the list of top 10 QBs of all time... or anywhere near it for that matter.

    On that note.... yeah, I didn't think that was Syd until it was mentioned in this thread. I swear I walked past him at the last Vikes game I was at which was Carolina (while getting sick seeing the Chokepins "schooling" our beloved Pats). If that was him..... damn, he's freakin big.

    This is the biggest blow out the Patriots have had all year. Kraft should send him free tickets for the rest of the season.

    Let him hug Moss every week after TDs.

    So, I'd love to know a Patriot (With Moss) vs. Vikings game - Who is Syd pulling for to win the game?

    In that instance we would have to declare a tie and Syd would have to cheer for the Bluebombers, whatever in the he11 that means...
