Looking back at the arrival of NFL football in MN
The Vikings are here! Looking back at the arrival of NFL football in Minnesota
If the Vikings were to leave, an era of professional football in Minnesota, spanning a half century, would come to an end. That era began on Sept. 17, 1961, when this region's NFL expansion team played its first game in Bloomington's Met Stadium.

Re: Looking back at the arrival of NFL football in MN
Thanks for the read my friend. Actually thought is was going to give alot more of the history.
In the end, football is nothing more than entertainment (both good and bad) that we the fans can get passionate about.
I for one thank the Vikings organization for a lifetime of entertainment.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
