Where Have All The Vikings Fans Gone?

August 29, 2011 by Nick in Vikings Support

First and foremost I have to say that writing this post really annoys me.  According to the StarTribune Vikings fans were hard press to be found at the State Fair this weekend.  Yes I understand we don’t all wear our game day gear every day but cmon? really? Directly from the article:

“it wasn’t until 12:30 p.m., a full 30 minutes after we started diligently staring at people, that we finally saw a guy come along in a Vikings T-shirt. By that point, we had seen 27 people in Twins gear, 13 in Gophers apparel, two more in Brewers shirts, a Minnesota Duluth fan, a Tampa Bay Rays hat and even a jersey celebrating the Atlanta Black Crackers of long-ago Negro League baseball fame.

We’re in the heart of the pre-season with the regular season is just around the corner.  Let’s all show our Vikings support.  This type of display doesn’t help with the perception that Minnesota has bandwagon fans.  Let’s all show our purple pride this summer and continue it into the season! SKOL VIKES!

    Ugh! What writer from the Trib wrote that? If I lived in Minnesota I’d be showing up at their house in my BigSkyVike Gear along with some other fans going, “Hey we read what you said! We never left! Some of us like to support other Minnesota teams too!

    SKOL!
