Fan experience huge for Vikings home opener

Vikings fans excited for the home opener and new stadium.

MINNEAPOLIS - The atmosphere was matched only by the anticipation.

"This atmosphere is absolutely amazing," one fan said.

"It's like no other event I've been to. It's sweet," one fan wearing a "cheese grater" hat said.

On a perfect September afternoon some Vikings fans searched for their names in the legacy bricks outside the stadium.

"Skol Vikings. Fans for life. Scott and Danni," a father and daughter read aloud in unison when they found their brick.

Another couple made a big decision on live TV.

"Will you marry me?" a woman asked her boyfriend. "Yes I will," he responded.

A Sunday worthy of a proposal rekindled an old rivalry in a brand new setting.

As they walked in through the giant glass doors to the end zone view of the field, even Packer fans had to admit.

"It's a hell of a stadium. That's the first thing I thought. Damn," said one fan wearing green and gold.
