Hello faithful VFB members. It has been quite a while since a new blog was created, so hopefully some of you are still visiting from time to time to see if anything new is happening.
In this painfully long offseason, something finally has happened. Thanks to the recommendation of an unnamed blogger *cough**cough* over at the Daily Norseman, they are starting a movement to get a Fan Name for the Vikings’ new stadium. This is a great movement, because who wants to talk about US Bank every time they head to a Vikings game? Over the past few decades, we at least had the Metrodome, (or Metrodump as it later became known) even after that mall bought the naming rights late in its life. It wasn’t the greatest of names, but at least it wasn’t an unwarranted endorsement to a business that we may or may not want to support.
This movement is being submitted in a 3-part process. First, (as in right now) they are asking fans to submit ideas of names that they would like to be used. Then they will have a poll where fans can select the name among the ones submitted that they like best. Finally, the great reveal, where we will learn the name that we THE FANS selected for our stadium! So please, head on over to Daily Norseman and help get us a stadium name that we can be proud of!
