It goes without saying that tonight’s Vikings-Packers game is sold out, but the stadium isn’t filled with only Vikings fans tonight. Several dignitaries have found their way to Mall of America Field at the HHH Metrodome.
Governor Tim Pawlenty will reportedly be in attendance; Senator Amy Klobuchar and Minneapolis Mayor RT Rybak are also here.
Legendary Cowboys RB Tony Dorsett is on the sidelines chatting with people, as are Twins outfielders Denard Span and Delmon Young. Span and Young will take this very field tomorrow night as the Twins and Tigers compete in a 1-game playoff for the AL Central crown and a chance to play the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series.
Randall McDaniel is in the house serving as the Vikings honorary captain and Gjallarhorn sounder; he’ll also be presented with his Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring at halftime of tonight’s game.
Well-known player representative Drew Rosenhaus is also at the game tonight; he represents several players on both the Vikings and Packers roster.
