I forgot to mention in this morning’s earlier entry that today was Fan Appreciation Day at Verizon Wireless Vikings Training Camp. As has been the case all of training camp, fans packed the bleachers and crowded the fence line to watch the Vikings at practice under a completely sunny sky and warm temperatures.
The main attraction to Fan Appreciation Day was a full-team autograph signing at the conclusion of practice. The Vikings marketing staff permitted children 12 years old and under to enter the practice fields and ask players to sign items. The entire Vikings team went along the large contingent of waiting children to sign as many autographs as possible.
Another part of Fan Appreciation Day was a silent auction of 20 autographed players’ bicycles. The silent auction will benefit the Vikings Children’s Fund. All 20 bikes up for auction have also been used by a Vikings player during training camp in addition to being autographed. The Vikings will also donate 1 bike to a person in need in the Mankato area for every bike purchased at the auction.
