    from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Vikings

    Franchise traditions, trends

    Viking horn

    A two-note clarion call mimicing an authentic warrior horn. Often played over the Metrodome PA system to incite the crowd into a frenzy, particularly when the Vikings are on defense.

    Helga hats
    Viking fans are known to dress up in "Helga Hats" or purple hats mimicking the helmets worn by Viking warriors while invading rival lands.

    Fight song
    Often during Vikings games, the fans will be led to sing the Minnesota Vikings fight song, which has the following lyrics:

    Skol, Vikings! Let's win this game. Skol, Vikings! Honor your name.
    Go get that first down, then get a touchdown,
    Rock 'em, sock 'em, fight, fight, fight, fight!
    Skol, Vikings! Run out the score; You'll hear us yell for more.
    V-I-K-I-N-G-S! Skol, Vikings, let's go!

    [size=14px]Skol is the Norwegian word for a salute or a toast, as to an admired person or group.[/size]

    Mascot
    The current team mascot is Ragnar, possibly the only "human" mascot in professional sports, meaning that he doesn't wear anything over his head. Ragnar (played by Joseph Juranitch) has been working for the Vikings since 1994, and claims to be the most widely-recognized mascot in the world. Jurantich admits to being somewhat of an eccentric—he holds the current world record for fastest time shaving a beard with an axe. Ragnar drives onto the field at the beginning of games on a loud motorcycle.
