A unique opportunity fell in my lap - I live in North Dakota, and one of my children has had a connection with the Make-A-Wish foundation. They called us this morning to see if we wanted 4 tickets to one of the Minnesota Vikings preseason games, one of which is against our beloved Buffalo Bills (Aug. 17 @ 7pm).
I'm about jumping out of my chair to say yes (I've been a Bills fan all my life, I can remember since the mid-70s teams, though I've never seen an NFL game live), but here's the conundrum. There are five of us (my wife, myself, and our three kids). All of us want to go, of course. I'm in the process of trying to find out the seat details of the tickets the Make-A-Wish foundation would already be giving us, but I need to find a phone number for the Vikings' PR office to see if there's any way we could get a fifth ticket, or trade these four for five together and pay for the last one, or something like that.
I just joined the Vikings' site on SB Nation (Daily Norseman), but I can't post on there for 24 hours. Does anyone on this site know of a phone number for the PR office of the Vikings? Also, anyone who can tell me about where to go to get to the Vikings' stadium, etc., would be helpful, but mostly right now I need info on how to get a fifth ticket where the whole family can sit together.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. Once I confirm for sure that we are going, then we can talk about what people might want to see during that 2nd preseason game. Even though I've been a journalist of sorts in the past, I can't guarantee I'm going to spend a ton of time taking notes, because this will really be a family trip for us, but if we're able to go, I'll definitely post a write up on BR afterwards.
