The Vikings will have to play for two years at TCF Bank Stadium before their brand new awesome sun splashed airy somewhat futuristic facility is ready to go. But of course the Vikes already have some experience at TCF. They played that one game there in 2010. The one Brett Favre doesn’t have to forget because he already can’t remember it.
That game was a total disaster for the Vikings on the scoreboard and of course it will always be infamous as Favre’s final game. But it wasn’t all misery. There was that amazing halftime ceremony where Bud Grant came out in his shirt sleeves despite the bitter cold and ice and Minnesota nastiness and was hoisted on his ex-players’ shoulders. And there was one on-field highlight too. The moment that, as of now, is the Vikings’ greatest moment at TCF Bank Stadium.
It came early when Favre was still in there. A quick screen to Percy Harvin and then boom. Right through the Bears’ defense like they weren’t even moving. Classic Percy.
Apologies to those of you who still miss Favre and have only begun missing Percy. This might bring tears.
Certainly Christian Ponder and the gang will be able to surpass this. They will have plenty of chances.
