London Should Be Interesting For Vikings Fans

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

In two weeks, the Minnesota Vikings and the Pittsburgh Steelers will be getting together for a Vikings' "home" game at Wembley Stadium in London, England. (I'm still impressed that the Brits named their stadium after one of the Fraggles.) According to the folks at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, fans that are making their way to the game look to have some pretty interesting things to look forward to.

According to the article, on Friday Saturday (thanks, AustrianViking) there's going to be a fan rally on Regent Street in London that's expected to draw 600,000 people. There will also be a big tailgate party the day of the game, and The Star-Spangled Banner will be performed by none other than Gene Simmons.

Yeah, that Gene Simmons. The guy from K.I.S.S. No word yet as to how much face paint, fake blood, or fire will be involved in the performance of the Anthem. (None, I'm hoping.)

Frankly, I really wish that I was going to this one. I initially had the trip all planned out. . .had plane tickets booked and everything. . .but real life got in the way and I'm not going to be able to make it. (As a result, I'm selfishly hoping that the team will play there again next season as well.) But if any of you folks are making the trip, whether you're already on that side of the pond or if you're making the pilgrimage from the States or anywhere else, I hope that you'll share a lot of your experiences/pictures/stories here at The Daily Norseman.

Two weeks until the Vikings play outside of the United States for the first time in over 20 years. It should be interesting, ladies and gentlemen.
