The Sporting Life In Minneapolis
Every year around September, a weird phenomenon happens in Minneapolis. People are transformed, mimicking the change of leaves with the coming of the fall season.
But instead of brown and red, we turn purple and gold.
The Minnesota Vikings are a National Football League team that plays their games in Minneapolis, and starting in 2016, they'll play in the brand new U.S. Bank Stadium, a bold new venue in Downtown Minneapolis.
The Vikings play 16 games each year in the always-tough NFC North division, matching up against the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers. The team has been in the NFL for more than 50 years, and has played in four Super Bowls in that time span.
When you visit Minneapolis, make sure you block off Sunday on your calendar. You won't want to miss out on Vikings football.
