The 2010 season constitutes the Vikings 50th in franchise history and the organization has embarked on a season-long celebration to honor this moment, with the pinnacle moment of the celebration being an awards ceremony on Sunday, December 19 where the organization will unveil its 50 Greatest Players and also recognize other valuable members and aspects of 50 years of Vikings football.
One of the greatest Vikings of all-time – QB Fran Tarkenton – has committed to attending the event. And he’s also gone a step further by creating a video in which he speaks about his excitement for the upcoming event, the first-ever Vikings team and also the relationship he has with his former head coach, Bud Grant.
We encourage you to click the link in the paragraph above this one to watch and listen to Tarkenton. It’s a treat to hear him speak about his time with the Vikings and a recent conversation he had with his former head coach. If this video is any indication of the kind of night December 19 will be, those who’ve purchased tickets to be in the building for this once-in-a-lifetime event will have a time they’ll never forget.
The Vikings anticipate tremendous attendance among its alumni, with players such as Anthony Carter, Cris Carter, Chris Doleman, Tommy Kramer, Jim Marshall, Randall McDaniel, Ahmad Rashad and Robert Smith all confirming their participation.
You can be there, too. A limited number of tickets are available for this exclusive event.
