Minnesota National Guard Troop Visit – Blog Entry No. 17

Posted by Ryan Cardinal on December 13, 2009 – 3:33 pm

Vikings Entertainment Network’s Bryan Harper and KFAN’s Mike Morris, the former Vikings longsnapper and current host of “The Power Trip Morning Show,” will be traveling to Iraq to visit Minnesota National Guard Troops over the next week or so.  Both men will be updating fans via the Blog on their trip about the experience.

Below is the duo’s 17th entry, sent via BlackBerry from Kuwait.

Morris/Harper: the game on AFN on the big screen here in Basra was amazing… it was a lot more like being at the game than you would think. They played Skol Vikings after each score and the reaction/noise was great. A fun time was had by all… it was great to hear that the Mall of America Field production took several shots of the fans here as well as at least a half dozen looks on the CBS broadcast… when it works out like that – it feels good to be a part of it. There was some emotion here tonight… you could see the feelings of “home” first-hand. The troops will be home soon and we cant wait to greet them when they arrive back home. A few more blogs to come, we leave Iraq soon for the long trip home.

    I enjoy watching the on field celebrations instead of a delay glance @ the troops
