Have the Minnesota Vikings ever made you cry?

Like, for real, we mean

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Tennessee Titans Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Now that we’re into the slow. . .and I do mean sloooooooooooooooooooow. . .part of the offseason, the SB Nation family of NFL blogs is doing some “theme weeks.” The topic for this week is times in sports that have made you cry.

So, the question for Minnesota Vikings fans seems like an obvious one: Has there ever been a time where this football team has reduced you to tears? Happy tears, sad tears, doesn’t matter. . .either way.

I’ve got to be completely honest. . .the Minnesota Vikings have made me feel a whole lot of emotions over the time that I’ve been a fan of theirs. I think that, like a lot of Vikings fans, I’ve spent plenty of time on both sides of the emotional spectrum because of this team.

However, I can’t remember a time that I actually, physically cried over something that happened with this football team. Maybe there has been and I’m just not remembering it at the present time, but I don’t have a story about a time something happened with the Vikings and I wound up crying as a result. I may have shed a tear or two when the stadium bill finally went through, but that may have just been because I was tired of hearing a-hole fans of lesser teams make jokes about how the Vikings were moving somewhere.


Frankly, there’s only one thing connected with the Vikings that I think would definitely bring me to tears. . .but that’s something for tomorrow’s topic.

But that’s the question for today: Have the Minnesota Vikings ever brought you to tears in some way? You can discuss it below if you wish, or you can just vote in our little poll here.
