How many live outside of Minnesota and are Viking fans?How many of same have ever attended a Viking training camp?It's on my bucket list.I have attended 2 live Viking games,the 1st in 2005 after being a fan since 1969.It was everything I ever dreamed.
Icing on the cake?????
the 2014 baseball All-star game will be played at Minneapolis.
That and training camp.Hmmmmmmmmmmm,I'm looking into if it's doable on my part.Both occur in July.

I floated the idea of a trip to Minnesota in 2016 during football season to my wife. She isnt much of a football fan, but said she thinks attending a live game would be fun ( plus the Mall of America, ugh!). Would love to attend a game in the new stadium! Wonder if a bunch could pool together and afford a private box?

I think attending training camp sounds like a good idea for those who never have. Mankato is a descent city, I lived near it most of my life. Not great, but I have heard some GREAT things about training camp for the fans. I have plenty of friends in the city so if you need some tips let me know. They also know where the players like to go and hang out in their free time and evening too.

The Mall of America is ok if you have never been there. I hate the place but many people like it, mostly women though. I think the public rail system will run past the New Stadium and MOA, maybe you can enjoy the game with a friend while your wife shops!

Don't know about a box (big bucks)but maybe.A row of descent seats works.Would be cool to have a bunch of us go.Gonzo has never attended a Viking game anywhere?????I was surprised when he told me.I've been to many on the east coast and 2 in Minn.Mall of America is okay,but it is a mall.Loved the sports store,many Viking items for sale and some are very pricy,like a A.Page jersey going for a grand.Damn I wanted it though.Winter park and the boat was great.Got my picture taken.Game day is awesome.St.Paul catheradal,3rd largest in the nation.Hell,I'd even match training camp with a pre season game.
