The Minnesota Twins have out of town baseball scores in right-center field.
Today there was one score that wasn’t baseball:
That’s right, the Minnesota Vikings, a professional football team, had their score against the Jacksonville “We might move to LA soon” Jaguars, a semi-pro football team (lets be real) posted in the lower-right corner of the scoreboard, right underneath the NL scores.
There were no horns given out to patrons or special promotion, but it was unofficially “Vikings Day” at Target Field on Sunday.
Fans still showed up to the Twins contest against the Cleveland Indians—a game between two teams in the AL Central cellar.
Sure the Vikings are at .500 (ahh…a clean slate) and the Twins are not, but there were reasons to go to Target Field, namely:
- There are baseball fans that aren’t football fans.
- Target Field is brand-spankin’ new and outdoors. The Metrodome is older than time and is indoors.
- And if you’re at the Vikings game, you have to watch the Jaguars.
