Lyrics to Skol Vikings

Ever since I went to so many of the Vikings games this past season, I can't stop singing the Vikings fight song! I can't get the Vikings fight song out of my head! Does anyone else have that problem? I even downloaded the song onto my iPod so I could listen to the Vikings fight song whenever I want! 

Lyrics to Skol Vikings

Skol Vikings, let's win this game,
Skol Vikings, honor your name,
Go get that first down,
Then get a touchdown.
Rock 'em . . . Sock 'em
Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
Go Vikings, run up the score,
You'll hear us yell for more. . .
Skol, Vikings, let's go!

Metrodome Memories

As the Metrodome is demolished, we want to hear about your Metrodome memories! My personal favorite memories from the Metrodome are Brett Favre's pass to Greg Lewis and Adrian Peterson's 296-yard game. Perhaps even when the Metrodome collapsed? Not the best thing to happen, but it sure was interesting!

If you were there to witness a big Vikings moment in the Metrodome, and you'd like to share your story, leave us a comment on this blog.
