Vikings vs Packers: Easy Win?

Vikings Happy Hour was having a fun night at Lake Monster Brewing. This was, especially with Arif Hasan of the Athletic joining Matt, Myles, and Ryan talking Vikings football, talking smack to Packers fans, and drinking some great beer! SKOL!

Live from Lake Monster Brewing beer hall, we have Vikings Happy Hour .

The Minnesota Vikings are about to start their regular season where every game counts in their quest for a championship. The Vikings and Packers will face off first. An easy win, right? The Green Bay Packers will come to town to play the Purple in U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon in the 3:25 pm Central time slot. It will be a game viewed by most of America and a serious test for Kevin O’Connell and his team. This will be O’Connell’s first real game as a head coach. The butterflies for him and some of the players on the squad should be in full dogfight mode. The crowd will be hyped up and Skol Chants ringing loudly from the rafters. Vikings Happy Hour has Arif Hasan of the Athletic and Daily Norseman’s Norse Code here to talk about it. He is joining Matt, Myles, and Ryan live from Lake Monster Brewery in the first live show for the 2022 campaign.

So grab your Lake Monster beer and join us! Skol!
