This week, we look at the history of hardcore sports, the Vikings, and the history-obsessed fans who have become the most rabid fans in America.
First, we get to know the Vikings and the Vikings fans: First, the history.
In the early 1800s, a group of farmers from New England who were not exactly known for their love of football found themselves competing in the fledgling American league, the NFL.
By 1842, the New England Patriots were the team of the future.
The Vikings were born in 1849.
A year later, the team was renamed the Minnesota Vikings and was officially established as the second team in the league.
In 1855, the Minnesota United team played its first game at the new St. Paul Saints Stadium.
In 1865, the league expanded to include two teams: the Minnesota Stars and the Minneapolis Stars.
In 1890, the Stars folded, but the Stars remained in existence until 1919.
In 1919, the United team folded after a long and tumultuous two-year tenure, after which the Stars were purchased by the Atlanta Falcons.
In 1921, the Atlanta Braves were founded, and by 1923, the first professional baseball team was in town.
By 1924, the Braves were the biggest-selling team in American professional sports.
In 1927, the Boston Braves moved from Atlanta to Philadelphia, and in 1933, the Philadelphia Eagles moved from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. The teams remained in Washington, DC, until 1946, when they relocated to the new National Football Stadium in downtown Washington, where they remained until the team moved to Atlanta in 1949.
After winning a World Series title in 1950, the Bears played their first regular-season game in the new stadium.
By 1951, the franchise was moved to the Atlanta Silverdome, where it stayed until 1960, when it was relocated to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
In 1960, the Eagles were the only team to win a World Championship.
The team also won a Super Bowl, the 1958 NFL Championship, two College Football Playoff championships, two NFL Championships and two AFL Championships.
In 1973, the Lions were bought by the Los Angeles Rams, who were also the owners of the Seattle Seahawks.
The Rams made it to the Super Bowl four times, the 1960 Super Bowl in 1967 and 1970, and a Superbowl victory in 1972.
In 1975, the Chargers and Falcons split from the Rams in exchange for the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders.
The NFL and NFL owners had long been rivals, and this rivalry had led to the name “Chargers” being applied to a number of teams during the 1950s and 1960s, including the Chargers in 1967.
By 1975, fans had started to realize that the “Charger” moniker had been applied to several teams and that the team had a lot of baggage.
In 1976, the owners decided to get rid of the nickname.
They renamed the franchise the Arizona Cardinals.
The name “Cardinals” stuck because it was a combination of the words “the” and “team.”
After three consecutive losing seasons, the Cardinals went on a winning streak, but fans were still upset that the name was being applied.
The “Charged” name stuck because of the fact that the Chargers were a part of a division rival.
The Arizona Cardinals won their first Super Bowl victory in 1980.
The 1980 season was one of the most memorable in NFL history, as the Cardinals defeated the San Francisco 49ers, a team that had played its home games at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.
The following season, the 49ers won the Superbowl, and fans continued to get upset.
The 49ers had the first ever Super Bowl win, defeating the St. Louis Rams, which were in the same division as the Arizona Coyotes.
In 1991, the St Louis Rams were sold to the Los Angels Angels of Anaheim for $750 million.
The franchise was renamed Los Angeles Angels of Darkness.
In 2003, the Los Angeles signed free agent offensive tackle Ryan Kelly to a four-year, $28 million contract.
Kelly, a free agent at the time, became the second offensive tackle in NFL team history to make over $1 million per season.
The next year, the Arizona Wildcats went on to win the National Championship.
Kelly was named the National Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Kelly made his first start in the Superdome against the New York Giants in 2009, as Arizona won the game.
The 2010 season was a success, as Kelly finished the season with 4,087 passing yards and 38 touchdowns.
Kelly also rushed for 1,854 yards, which ranked fourth in school history for a quarterback.
In 2011, the Wildcats were in a playoff spot heading into the first round, but fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the wild card round.
Arizona beat Tampa Bay in the first playoff game, and Kelly’s performance helped Arizona reach the Superbowl.
Kelly led the
