Miller Lite is the worst of all beers. And with it technically being a Wisconsin beer, you would think the Vikings would do better. Just another reason to go to Gopher games instead of Vikings games.

I'm sure they will copy target field and have a bunch of local selections as well. I refuse to drink 'sconnie piss water especially at a Vikings game.

Somehow I don't picture football fans at a game as a major craft beer audience.

I would like to think we have at least a little more class than the cheeseheads though.

You have to remember that this stadium is geared much more toward rich white people from Minnetonka than middle class white people from Monticello. Maybe it'll just be Sam Adams and Blue Moon, but there will for sure be other beer available.

Yes. The fans are quite different.

I'm a big fan of the Twins and Vikings, and I would completely agree that the fans are totally different. Despite me being a bigger fan of the Vikings than the Twins, after a Twins game I don't walk away thinking slightly less of society in general the way I do after Vikings games (I'm being overly dramatic here but you get the point). Maybe my problem was that I was sober while surrounded by totally drunk (Vikings AND Packers) fans at the Vikings-Packers game last fall :lol:.

Just because of the behavior of the fans, I don't plan on taking my 4-year-old daughter to a Vikings game any time in the next decade (or more). On the other hand, we've already been to several Twins games because people are way more tame. Maybe we'll go see the Vikings when she already has some of those words in her ummm... vocabulary. ;)

Completely agree. The people you see at Vikings games make you embarassed to be a part of the fan base. Twins games have plenty of slobs, but they arent typically obnoxious.

There are some generalizations that stick. There was a recent "study" on the grammar used by fans of various football teams. The Vikings fans rated among the worst grammar abusers.

And wasn't that study poorly done? I read something about how they looked on twitter as one of their sources.

Would have to imagine the more expensive tickets might help that a bit. It's pretty trashy at present. I've gone to a Vikings game annually for a bit, and, notably, my last time in the Metrodome I got to be in the background (starting about 4:26) of this neat video:



I even got my first subpoena!

I was at that game and sat not far beyond the photographer of this video and never knew what really happened. I couldn't see as well. I totally forgot about it until now. It took 3 years but now I know. Unrelated to the topic but when I think of that game, I think of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9fkJRkiM20.
