Vikings Game

I attended my first Vikings game since the 1998 NFC Championship game on Sunday.  Here are a few observations.

*Times have changed.  The entire scene is a circus.  The game itself is just part of the equation.

*I would estimate that the Vikings made $7 million in beer sales alone on Sunday.  And before any of you smart alecks insert a joke here, I didn’t contribute to that total.  I was actually trying to watch the game.

*When I watch football at home, I flip to another game during a commercial.  At the dome, you actually have to sit there and wait for the TV timeout to be over.  It seems like there are a lot of stoppages.

*The majority of the crowd participated in “doing the wave” at a crucial point in the second half.  While the Vikings had the ball.  I still haven’t figured that out yet.

*I saw a lot of Kleinsasser jerseys in the crowd.

*If someone asks you if you’d like to go to the VIP Tent before the game, say, “Yes.”  Nothing like Prime Rib on a Sunday morning.

  1. I’ve been to a few NFL games in person, but I prefer to watch them on tv. I like seeing the replays and flipping to the other game and watching Redzone.
