And you thought it would never get here. The offseason, training camp and the preseason are over and the regular season is here. The Vikings begin their season with bout against the Browns as they travel to Cleveland on Saturday for the season-opener on Sunday.
But before the regular season begins at noon Sunday, an exciting week of activities is planned for the fans, with Vikings players, alumni, cheerleaders and other personalities scheduled to take part in the action. Click the link in the previous sentence for a full list of the events and for more information on how you can participate.
One highlight of 2009 Vikings Kickoff Week will be a series of kickoff parties at Buffalo Wild Wings locations all across the Metro on Thursday night. LB E.J. Henderson, Vikings Ring of Honor member John Randle and radio voice of the Vikings Paul Allen are just a few examples of Vikings personalties who will be present at these kickoff parties.
The activities during kickoff week will lead right up to Sunday’s Vikings-Browns game, and that’s when we can finally put the offseason, training camp, the preseason and the teasing kickoff week activities in the rear view mirror and enjoy the real thing.
