Are you serious?! Yes, we are! We only regret that it's not an Adrian Peterson signed jersey, or a CHRIS KLUWE SIGNED JERSEY?! Come on Chris, help us out here.
Anyway, this is your chance to win a signed Christian Ponder Vikings jersey. For free! You just have to follow the instructions below and submit your favorite Vikings fan story. You'll then be entered to win this swaggy stuff. It's real (as far as I can tell – He signed it at a recent event we were asked to promote), and is one of the new jerseys for the Vikings. Cool!
We'll run this contest throughout the month of July to give you slackers plenty of time to enter. We'll choose an entry at random, and when we announce the winner publically, will share their submitted personal Vikings fan story. The story may be awesome, or it may be sad. It may strike true with other fans or make many of us throw up in our mouths. I don't care what it is, because we'll publish pretty much anything. So write a good one!
CONTEST IS CLOSED. THANKS FOR ENTERING!
