MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - Vikings fans did not envision their team’s season ending this way, but one thing about Vikings fans is that they stick with their team through good times and bad.
Sunday night was no different. It was a disappointing game, but folks who packed into the stadium are ready to put the season behind them.
Fans rocked U.S. Bank Stadium at the start of Sunday’s game, looking forward to a win over the Bears in the biggest game of the season.
Winning, and even love, were on the mind of those wearing purple and gold.
A couple got engaged on the field before the game. Andrew McGee might get Fiancé of the Year after he planned the big proposal for his soon-to-be-bride.
“Then he proposed,” said the Vikings fan who was engaged at the game. “And I said yes. Best experience of my life. I’m a huge Vikings fan, so we came from Nashville to watch the game.”
That was probably the best moment of the evening for Vikings fans as the game quickly started to fall apart against the Bears.
Bears fans were everywhere, cheering and dancing as their team kept driving up the score.
Vikings faithful kept their horns on and tried to smile, but it got more difficult as the minutes went by.
“I’m still going to wear this hat,” another Viking's faithful fan said. “Skol Vikings. You got to root for the home team and enjoy that atmosphere.”
Others just left early because they couldn’t take it anymore.
“I was really hoping for a win. I thought they could pull it off, but, in the end, it didn’t happen,” he added.
Even if the Vikings didn’t make the playoffs this year, Bears and Vikings fans can still get along. After all, there is always next year.
“I feel bad but it was a fun season,” another fan said. “They’re fun to watch. It was a great season to watch.”
Even though it was difficult to watch, most Vikings fans said they know how hard the team works and truly hope they can come together and win it all next year.
