I must begin this post by firmly stating that our household is a Green Bay Packer supporting household. Despite our Minnesota address, our football hearts are firmly in Green Bay. Okay, that’s out of the way. Onto the task at hand. :)
We love football. While I would say my affinity for football started when I watched MJ play football in college, I am fairly sure MJ’s love started at or near birth. There are photos of him with family and friends at various points in life cheering on, celebrating and loving his home state team. Because of this lifelong love, he has passed down/indoctrinate this love to our babies. As the children grow, we get to talk more about the particulars and intricacies of the game. I can’t help but smile when Sweet J spots the penalty before the announcers say it. Bug is working on understanding the rules, use and goals of punting the ball and Pipsqueak is the most animated spectator (and it’s so cute!)
We are surrounded by, quite literally, by fans from this state’s team, the Minnesota Vikings. Our cross the cul-de-sac neighbors bleed purple and yellow. Nearly every home game, they leave dressed in the purple garb, ready to cheer on their team. Don’t worry, our friendly banter will not disrupt our friendly cohabitation but our love and support is valid none the less. We buy our gear and wear it with pride. We celebrate our victories and accept our losses with dignity. Or with as much dignity we can muster 2-24 hours later. Furthermore, we get ecstatic about watching games, especially ones in the home stadium, and all secretly dream of just hanging out with the players we watch on TV. Don’t lie. It would be awesome. For this reason, I’m really loving the fantastic sweepstakes CenturyLink is treating Vikings fans to this season.
CenturyLink (a company we use) has partnered with the Minnesota Vikings and wide receiver Stefon Diggs to treat lucky fans to a CenturyLink Boostbox sweepstakes. These Boostboxes, as seen above, are customized boxes made just for Vikings fans and filled with exclusive Vikings items. For instance, CenturyLink kicked off Week 1 with a “Welcome Back Football” themed box featuring a jersey signed by Diggs! Cool, right?! But don’t worry, you’ve haven’t missed out on all the goodies yet. The sweepstakes is running all season long and has eight entry periods, one of which is on Tuesday the 24th!
“Tell me more!” you say.
“Okay!” I say.
Every other Tuesday, a Boostbox theme is announced on CenturyLink’s Facebook and Twitter accounts (@CenturyLinkMN) along with Stefon Digg’s Twitter account (@StefonDiggs). Make sure to follow along to be in the know.
Each Boostbox contains two tickets to an upcoming Vikings game and a tablet with Digg’s signature laser engraved. The boxes also include specialty items to coincide with the week’s theme. Items like a 55″ Smart LED TV, wireless headphones and a team store shopping spree. Finally, winners may get their prize box delivered by a special Vikings personality! Does this sound fantastic?!
You should get in on this deal. Just do it. All you need to do is sign up at Vikings.com/CenturyLink for a chance to win.
And finally, whether you are a fan of the Vikings or the exact opposite, cheering on a team brings about a feeling of camaraderie and togetherness and I think everyone can get behind that.
