60 years ago in their first game on September 17th 1961, the Vikings upset the Bears 37-13 with Francis throwing 4 touchdown passes, it was a big upset at the time, those are good memories! :thumbsup:

Fran was ahead of his time. He was doing what people call new today 60 years ago. Never thought I'd go this long with no Super Bowl. As time goes by it isn't looking good that it will happen for me. Let's face this year is out and we have nothing on the bench that can be developed.

I was a week short of my tenth birthday and remember that. We have been on the world’s longest roller coaster ride for sixty years and we still come back for more punishment every season. :lol:
