The Minnesota Vikings will unveil new team uniforms during the 2013 Miller Lite Vikings Draft Party at Mall of America Field on Thursday, April 25.
Well, now you can see it well before then.
One source that knows a person that knows a person close to the team, speaking on a condition of anonymity, sent an e-mail to SportingSota.com with a photo of quarterback Christian Ponder and defensive end Jared Allen sporting the new Nike designed uniforms. The thought behind the new uniforms is to bring the uniforms back a few years, as the source suggests:
“Fans wanted retro,” the source said. “So they had Nike come up with a design that is retroactive to the late eighth to the mid-11th centuries.”
Another source confirmed the legitimacy of the photo via a MySpace private message, but also spoke on a condition of anonymity because he is not technically old enough to have an account under the site’s terms of service.
SportingSota.com was also able to track down the main designer of the new uniform. The designer, who chose to remain anonymous, says the material for the uniforms, is the best known material available:
“The material is made from 100-percent authentic tyrannosaurus pizzle,” the source said speaking through a Northern Ndebele translator.
