It’s hard NOT to notice Vikings fever today. Many fans are wearing purple in the workplace to cheer on the team in the season opener against the Saints in New Orleans.
Others are actually making the trip to New Orleans for tonight’s game. Vikings fans were decked out in purple and gold as they waited at MSP for flights to the Big Easy. Many said they were hoping for payback from the loss to the Saints in the NFC championship game last season.
An Elk River church is hoping to lure new members by offering a chance at free Vikings tickets. Those who show up at Crossing Church in Elk River Saturday or Sunday have a shot at season tickets for the Minnesota Vikings. Pastor Eric Dykstra says he “would do anything short of sin to get somebody in the door.”
