Vikings Remember 9/11 – Randy Moss – How To Win
I was fortunate enough to get to attend the Vikings game last night, and it was amazing! From the pregame ceremony where the Vikings took the time to remember those who we lost during the 9/11 attacks, to the Randy Moss “Ring of Honor” presentation, to the victory. The entire day was amazing.
As a Vikings fan, it is always incredible to see your favorite team win, the pregame ceremony sat with me. I thought it was amazing how the Vikings carved out special time to honor those we lost on September 11th, 2001. A day we will never forget. The Vikings gave every seat in the stadium a specific card, and when the fans held up their card, we made an American Flag, along with the words “Never Forget” spelled out along the sidelines.
It was amazing to see.
Then, halftime was another special moment. Randy Moss, maybe the biggest game breaker the Vikings have ever had, excited the crowd as he spoke of former teammates, coaches and memories. His highlights were on repeat on the jumbo-tron throughout the game. It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
We also got cards in our seats to help celebrate Randy Moss. It was awesome!
Oh yeah, the Vikings absolutely took it to the Saints in Week 1, shutting them down defensively, along with Sam Bradford throwing for 300+ yards and 3 touchdowns. That is always great to see.
U.S Bank Stadium is huge, but what the Vikings did in memory of the 9/11 attacks and Randy Moss is what I will remember most from this game.
