    My First Vikes Game!

    This year I get to go to my first Vikings game. Not only do I get good seats, I also get to go down to the field and meet some players after! My mom records news shows and she sells them to companies as her job, and I don't quite remember how, but one of her clients is a huge Vikings fan, and he gave her free tickets! I am so excited! When was/will be your first Vikings game?

    You'll have a blast there for sure, the atmosphere inside is fantastic, especially when "Welcome to the Jungle" starts up and the video of the Vikings Longboat plays up on the screens.
    First Vikes game at the Dome was back in 2000 against the Bills, been lucky to make the trip back each year since then
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    My first game was in 2000 in Dallas on Thanksgiving, Moss had an incredible day and we won.

    That was a great game! 3 catches, 3 TD's, all for over 50 yards each!

    My first game at the dome was the 2000 playoff game against the Saints. My wife suprised me with tickets to the game, which is more impressive than it sounds, since she's a Bears fan. I had been to a couple Vikings/Bears games at Soldier Field before that.

    Re: My First Vikes Game!

    My first game was the first game ever at the dome. I was 'just a kid', working in a 3M office downtown Minneapolis. I was just getting off work when the CEO and Chairman of the Board, of the entire company (3M), Louis Lehr, walked into the office and asked "does anyone want to go to the game with me?". After peeling myself off the floor, I relented and had the time of my life. From that time forward I was addicted to going to home games, and soon after I was on the season ticket waiting list.

    Man there is nothing like the Dome, I especially love when the Vikings get ready to kickoff and they crank "Welcome to the Jungle" on the speakers it is awesome.

    My first game was Randy's breakout game against Tampa in '98.

    Re: My First Vikes Game!

    My first game was in 98 it was a preseason game, and I honestly don't remember who they played but it was Moss' first game, and that was when I fell in love with football and the Vikings! The atmosphere in the dome is awesome, being in a crowd of tons of other Vikings fans just like you is a blast! It's great when you have people near you who are just as loud as you are, cause then you don't feel stupid. At least that's what it's like for me.
