Sweet!
That certainly makes paying FULL PRICE for an exhibition game worth it.

Really.

I saw that on Access Vikings yesterday.
I think the idea is to keep fans there the whole game, especially since it is the featured game on CBS.
It worked for us.
My son is excited to get the poster, so we will be doing our best to stay until the end (It depends on how the four year old is doing at the time though...).

Man, I want a free Adrian Peterson Poster. To bad I stay in Florida. One day, I'll make a trip to the dome.

Unique in that his first "big/breakout" game was in Chicago and the Vikings wore all white unis that day.

I actually noticed that when NP first posted the picture, but didn't bother to mention it.
Most likely, it's based on a photo from the MNF game against the Bears in December.
The Vikings wore the purple on purple that night.

Not really, unless they wait until until the 4th quarter is nearly over before handing them out.

There have been several times they had giveaways & started handing them out to people leaving in the 3rd quarter. By the time the game ended & people who stayed for the whole game started heading out, there was nothing left to be handed out.

That would be pretty crappy. They make us pay regular season prices to see preseason you would think they could afford to make enough posters for everyone. I doubt they cost the vikings more than $1 a piece.

I would be so pissed if I did not get one because of that.

I will keep my eyes open for it.
The web site says that they will give them to all fans as they leave following the game, so I would assume that means when it is over.
But I will definately keep my eyes open just in case.
Thanks for the heads up!

That is 1000 times better than giving it to me. Good on you, Singer.


Still, if anyone else has any extras...

Bought a cheap frame from Michael's, and now I have to see about getting it up in Little Girl's room.

Yeah, we left towards the beggining of the fourth quarter and went up to one of the booths where they were giving them out.
The guy asked me, "How many do you want"?
So I said, "Just one".

Then he says, "Are you sure you don't want two"?.
So I grabbed two.

Seems like a joke though.
I hope there was enough for everyone who attended the game.

I had 4 tickets so I showed them to them & got 4 posters. I didn't play pig & take more than what I had tickets for. I saw one guy who had no less than 25 of them. It was a stack of about 1/2" thick.

They started handing them out at half time & one of the guys handing them out assured me there would be plenty after the game. The way they were handing them out, I had my doubts.
