I get a lot of questions from my local peeps about why I like Vikings. They wonder whether I’m Norwegian, or of Norwegian descent, etc., etc. I’m none of these things (I’m actually half Hispanic) and because of this, sometimes local folks regard me as – well, a curiosity.

My online circle doesn’t find it much of an issue. But I figured that folks might find it helpful to figure out why this half-Mexican, Texas resident doesn’t find it such a big leap to “take a liking to a Viking.” As many of you know, I used to be a school teacher, so I’ve made up the handy chart below (you can just imagine this with stickers and magic markers, right?

Anyways – see? It isn’t a stretch! And if you don’t believe me, well, I taught high school. Believe me, I’m tougher than you.
