Guest Blog | Training Camp Experience Winners

By: Darla and Garry Lodoen

Wow! What a great day we had on Tuesday, July 31st! My husband won 2 tickets to the Kirk Cousins Experience to watch the Vikings afternoon training camp session from the sidelines and meet Kirk Cousins after practice.


It was a hot day, but that was nothing compared to the sizzle that the Vikings were showing on offense and defense. We were impressed with a throw that Kirk threaded between two converging defenders to hit Adam Thielen in stride for a sure TD. On the defensive side, we saw Jalyn Holmes make some great moves during drills which drew cheers from his teammates.

After practice, Kirk signed our jerseys and took a photo with us. We will wear those jerseys with pride and have shown the photo to many of our friends. That gives us the opportunity to tell everyone what a great guy Kirk is. He is very easy to talk to, we chatted about our love for the Vikings, he told us about his new home and we let Kirk know where our seats are in the stadium. He will hear us cheering loud and proud all season!


Kirk’s assistants were very helpful and wanted us to let you know that Kirk will be having other great opportunities throughout the year to win prizes and exciting experiences like ours. Please support his foundation. SKOL!!
