    best memories of a viking game that you were at

    my best memorie of a viking game was the 1st game i was at it was december 1980 i was about 9 at the old met the vikings were losing by about 3 tds in the 4th quarter and it came down to the last play of the game with 2min tommy throwing a bomb that was tipped about 2 times and caught by rashad with one hand as he was falling down to beat the browns lucky for me i was in the endzone in which that catch was made.

    We have done this before...but it can't hurt to do it again for the rookie!

    My best memory was the Packer game at the Dome this year (my FIRST home game)...tailgating in the Rapid lot with the PP.O crew, getting on LIVE TV (thanks to MrsWebby), serving my PP.O buds some of my famous Cajun gumbo, cheering in the stands with SKOL and his crew...and most importantly, being there when Edinger kicked that last second FG to WIN the game and send all those Packer turds home crying!!!

    You took mine! That was definitley my best Viking memory to date. Can't remember the last time I was that excited! It was a perfect ending to a perfect day when the 56 yarder was kicked. I still listen to Paul Allen's recording of it. Will never forget that moment!

    Re: best memories of a viking game that you were at

    Not to bring everyone down, but ...
    My best memory of a game I attended was in Atlanta on Oct. 5, 2003. It was a great game as the Vikes improved to 5-0 that day and Randy Moss had one of the more remarkable touchdowns of his career ... but the best moment came for me late in the fourth ...
    I was not one of the schmucks that did it on a jumbo screen (she would have hated that) ... but I proposed to the most wonderful woman I have ever known and got a resounding yes (w/ applause from the 10-15 Vikings fans in the section as the Falcons fans had disappeared).
    My wonderful lady had been diagnosed with a rare cancer just five months earlier and just four months after we were engaged she lost her battle at the age of 20 ... but our weekend in Atlanta and seeing the Vikings (she loved them as well) and getting engaged makes that game stand out far more than the other five Vikes games I have attended ... even the one I saw in Minnesota.

    Re: best memories of a viking game that you were at

    WOW,

    Where do I start?

    I'll pick out 2 of my favorite memories...

    One: I'de have to say, going to the Vikings play the Bears, for this years finaly.....

    Even though the game didn't have the meaning to it, that I wish it could have, it was my first ever Vikings home game.....

    Just getting to see the Vikings win on their home field, and sharing that time with some really good friends I've made here at the PurplePride.Org was a memory that will last a lifetime.....SingerSP,Shockzilla,Cain,Viking_Queen , countrygirl, and all the other members I met and Vikings Fans around the park.


    TWO: Can't remember the exact year, but it was a Monday Night game, Vikings VS Giants......At the Meadowlands in NY.......Moon was QB and we really took it to them that night.......But what topped it off was, LT retired and thats the night they celebrated his retirement at half time....

    It was truly a great moment to listen to one of, if not, the best DE's to ever play the game.....His speech was one that even made me happy...I even remeber the part that stuck home with me, even to this day...

    LT said...." Most people would be nervous right now and wouldn't know what to say, but not me, I'm in my house and surrounded by my fans".....

    I thought that was a great line.......


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Great story, man...sorry for your loss! I am glad to hear that you focus on the good memories...and hope that one day you find someone else just as special...this Viking fan is sure rooting for you to do that someday!

    Vikings vs. Packers, 2005. Edinger kicks a 56 yard field goal to win it. I was giving fives to people and freaking out with people and hugging people that I didn't even know. It was so fun.

    1969 Western Division Championship Game.

    Met Stadium

    End zone seats (freezing my a$$ off on some old wood bleacher)

    Carl Eller sacked Roman Gabreale right in front of me for a saftey.

    Vikings win!!
    I used to be indecisive, now I m not so sure!
