The Minnesota Vikings are a professional American football team based in Minneapolis. Established on January 28, 1960, the team started playing in the National Football League (NFL) from the 1961 season. They are known for their strong defense, often referred to as the “Purple People Eaters,” which dominated the NFL in the 1970s. The Vikings have made several appearances in the NFL playoffs and have won their division many times. I was a huge Minnesota Viking fan when I was a kid in 1960s and ’70s. I used to love watching Fran Tarkenton play quarterback throwing the ball down the field while scrambling all over the place. I was a big fan of the purple people eaters. Alan Page was a monster. I loved his face mask. No one wore a face mask like Alan Page did. Of course, the Minnesota Vikings broke my heart multiple times reaching the Super Bowl and never winning. It was tough being a Minnesota Vikings fan as a kid.
