Packed House Tonight

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 5, 2009 – 6:54 pm

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.

    Goodluck to Favre and the MN Vikings! My boys (10 and 9) live in Long Beach; near Kiln, Mississippi where Brett grew up. I grew up in Minnesota with Tarkenten and the other PPE (purple people eaters). I hope Favre can get the Vikings to the Super Bowl and this time put the losing streak to an end. Get this game underway and do your best to win!! Beat the Pack!

    What a boost to have Randall McDaniel doing the honors last night! He was a star with the Vikings, and he’s a star in real life, too. He has always belonged in the Vikings Ring of Honor.
