Minnesota Vikings Dome Banner

Printed Banner of Photo Taken at the Last Vikings Game in the Metrodome

This Photo was taken after the last Minnesota Vikings game ever played at the Metrodome. A friend of mine has been a long time season ticket holder and is the most die-hard Vikings fan I know. He brought me and a few others to the last game of the 2013-2014 season which also happened to be the last game before the Metrodome was demolished to make room for the new Vikings stadium. As the game ended, I took advantage of a great photo opportunity and captured this panoramic with my iPhone.

At first I wasn't quite sure what to do with the picture. I thought it would make a cool wall decoration for my man cave, but I wasn't sure how it would look blown up to the size I wanted it. I sent it over to a designer and she assured me that it would look awesome. She sent me a proof that looked good to me, so I gave her the go-ahead to put it into production. When my banners arrived a few days later, I was incredibly impressed with the finished product.
The photo of the banner doesn't even do it justice. This banner is 3 feet tall by 10 feet wide and looks even better than I expected. It will surely be a staple in my rec room for a very long time. I got a couple extra banners printed so I could give one to my friend as a token of thanks for taking us to such a historic game. Being able to see the field from the seats he sat in for so many years will mean so much to him. I'm just glad I was able to be a part of that moment and share it with the biggest Vikings fan I know. Thanks for helping me share this awesome piece of Vikings history.
