The keen-eyed and observant among you may have noticed something curious about the announcement of the Vikings 2nd round draft pick this year:  it was made by some dude who was not the normal dude who performs such duties.  Well that dude was, in fact, Onyx Herrera, a Vikings fan from Hawaii who won a contest sponsored by, and is now the official NFL Director of Fandemonium.  And that is not just a ceremonial position:  it is in fact packed with pressure, a pressure Onyx handled beautifully in front of millions of TV viewers, not to mention all those slobbering Neanderthal Jets fans.  In case you missed it, here’s a video clip of Onyx’s really quite impressive appearance at the draft, announcing Phil Loadholt.  Big ups to Onyx, going with the Jimmy Kleinsasser jersey.  That’s how you know he’s a real Vikings fan.

Head over to to see some videos of Onyx and the other Director of Fandemonium contestants getting run through the ringer Apprentice-style.  Michael Strahan is featured in the videos…stay tuned to The Viking Age for more concerning Mr. Strahan.  A hint:  it involves a signed football.
