What would my chances be of getting an internship with the vikings in one of the upcomming summers?

The reason I ask is because I figure some of you may have tried or might know. (Hey a guy never knows unless he asks)

I plan on attending law school after I finsih my undergrad, and I want to either become a sports agent or work in the front office of a team,

So do you any of you have any connections or contacts that could help me out?

I really would appreciate it, I feel I am qualified to work for their organization over a summer. (The job wouldn't matter, I just want the experience)

Probably ranging from 0-100%.

If nobody on the site has insider information then call the front office (http://www.vikings.com/frontoffice.html) and ask about the opportunities and who the person to talk to/address the letter to would be. Send a professional cover letter with your resume and see what happens.

The best bet is to contact the ball boy and the janitor. I heard they have all kinds of insider information.

Good advice. I had the idea in my head that some of you possibly worked with the vikings at one time or another.

And no I am not applying just to steal jerseys. But if I did *acquire" some jerseys, would you like to buy any? :grin:

Talk to audioghost (I think he interned for the Sioux Falls Canaries baseball team) or Jackyl (he does PR for several former and current NFL players). Not sure that anyone else here has any inside information. As far as going to law school to become an agent...GOOD LUCK. I have a friend that I went to law school with that worked for a fairly prominent sports agent in Houston all the way through law school to get experience and contacts...then promptly took a job in another area of the law when he graduated. I asked him what the deal was and he told me that the sports agent market is very cliqueish and very tight with who they let in. Over 75% of the "agents" that are registered with the NFL have NO clients...if that gives you any indication of how hard it is to break in. Not trying to discourage you...just giving you the facts....it may behoove you to have a fallback plan if you do choose to pursue this as a career.

I love you man.

I was hoping you would chime in in this thread.

I understand what you mean on the agent business. I guess I just need to have an edge on my competition.

But thanks a bunch for the contact info.

It will cost you about 8 grand a year just to call yourself an agent
