The Vikings Actually Play a Home Pre-Season Game



Date: 28 August 2010
Location: Minneapolis, MN
Time: 7:00 PM Central
Stadium: Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome
Know Thy Enemy: Field Gulls
Gonzo's Prediction: Doesn't matter as long as everyone stays healthy
Final Score: See above

After playing two consecutive pre-season contests on the road to begin 2010, the Beloved Purple finally get a chance to play in front of the hometown fans.

This is generally the game that the starters will see the most action, and I fully expect that to be the case for the Vikings this evening. With that being the case, I don't have many "keys" for tonight's action. . .just the ever-important one that nobody gets hurt during the course of this contest. I'm also sort of anxious to see how Greg Camarillo, the newest Viking, fits into the offense and how he works with #4.

I'm hoping that I'm going to be back by the time this one kicks off. I promised Mrs. Gonzo a trip to the quaint little Danish village of Solvang after the conclusion of the DN Fantasy Football Draft, and who knows how long we'll be down there. It's about two hours before kickoff now. . .bless SBNation and their kick-ass technology that allows me to compose this well ahead of time. . .and you guys know what to do after the game starts anyway. So, hopefully we'll see everyone here tonight for some purple and gold fun!
