Even though he no longer graces the world with his presence, Prince did spend his time on earth rooting for his hometown Vikings. He attended a number of the team’s games over the years and some believe his spirit was even in attendance during Minnesota’s miracle playoff win over the New Orleans Saints last season (please refer to this amazing meme).
A native of Minnesota, the Vikings paid tribute to the musician after his death in 2016 with a halftime ceremony during the team’s first ever regular season game at U.S. Bank Stadium.
Prince adored the Vikings so much he even wrote a song for them. Back in 2010, as Minnesota was preparing to play the Saints in the NFC Championship, the talented musician wrote a song dedicated to his favorite football team titled “Purple and Gold”.
