‘Just Win, Baby’

There is nothing better in the world of professional sports to cure any kind of hurt feelings or acrimony or ill will than winning. As the late Al Davis, former owner of the Oakland Raiders, once said, “just win baby.” And it’s never been truer for your Minnesota Vikings than the past two games – […]

I started a new feature on the Vikings Digital Diaries website last week.

Home Opener Weekend – VWO Style

Following the brutal wake-up call against San Francisco last weekend, loyal Viking fans did what we do best… brush it off and move forward.

Zach got to sit down with former Minnesota Vikings Punter/Kick-Off Specialist Mitch Berger. Mitch was awesome.
