Wow, the first game at US Bank Stadium was more than just a game, it was an experience. Before we even got inside you knew this was going to be different, you could feel it in the air. Vikings fans were out in full force. The streets and the tail gating lots were packed, not a lot of room to throw around the football or move, but it was fun.
The general mood and excitement continued as we moved inside and got to our seats. First family photo at US Bank Stadium. Not bad. I love that the person taking it captured the US Bank Stadium banner, this way we’ll always remember where we were.
The Vikings got things started with a moving #wearenorth video and then Jordin Sparks sang the national anthem. This has always been one of my favorite parts of the game. I love how the anticipation builds with the song.
Fast forward to half time, I knew after reading the Star Tribune article that morning that I didn’t want to miss the half time show and I am beyond thankful I didn’t. The MN Orchestra put on quite the show, the Prince tribute was amazing. I was so happy to be a part of it, yes I know my only role was to wave my cell phone and sing along but it was simply magical, an experience I will never forget.
And to top it all off, the Vikings win! It was definitely a night we will always remember, according to our boys it was the best game ever. #SKOLVikings
