I am in Wisconsin for my bonus-daughter's hockey tournament. We lost our first game and have our 2nd game in just a few hours. We are just chilling in our room for a bit and I can't explain the excitement I have for tomorrow's Vikings game.
Can this really be happening?
I am still in awe of the Minneapolis Miracle last weekend and could watch the video over and over again. Especially with PA's voice on the video.
I have been a Vikings fan since I was a little girl, watching NFL football with my dad every Sunday. I have been a season ticketholder since the 1998 season and you could've heard a pin drop in the Metrodome that horrible day we lost to Atlanta.... you know the moment. There have been many disappointing moments since then.... but this feels different.
Like I said, I have been a Vikings fan all my life. I was too young to remember the last Super Bowl they were in (I was only 3), but I am a lifer who bleeds purple. I have been lucky enough to visit Vikings Training Camp as a kid, manage Vikings Training Camp as an adult, meet many players, coaches and staff, collect autographs and photos, (my favorite player being Cris Carter) and go to Vikings games for the last 19 years.
Now I am part of something even bigger... the biggest event in the world. The Super Bowl. I am one of 10,000 volunteers selected to be part of the biggest show... the biggest experience... the biggest event in the NFL.... and to know that the Minnesota Vikings could make it this year, in their stadium, their state, our home, well, I am at a loss for words.
BRING IT HOME!
