SKOL and hello to you all. It was a tough season for us and now that it's over it doesn't mean that we have to stop being the greatest fans in the world for the next 7 months until training camp.
On February 12th Vikings Fans will be coming together to help raise money for fellow fan Dan Quandt of Davenport, IA. On the night of December 17, 2010 Dan was stabbed 14 times for being a fan of the Minnesota Vikings and left for dead. Due to the quick action of a friend , Dan was able to get to a hospital where his life was saved. Dan spent just a little over 2 weeks in the hospital and received 3 surgeries to clean up his wounds and fix the damage from the knife attack.
Dan wore his Vikings colors proudly that day and almost lost his life because of it. I believe that we as fellow fans, players, alumni and human beings owe it to Dan to show our support and love to him. Dan still has a long road to recovery with other surgeries possibly pending in the not-so-distant future. Won't you please join us in supporting Dan who literally Bled for the Vikings! SKOL! ~if you are unable to donate we ask that you please spread the news~
