As it turns out, the proper pronunciation for “Favre” isn’t “farv.”
Though the possibility of Favre joining the Vikings didn’t move many tickets when the single-game seats went on sale in July, the reality has caused a rush on the box office.
By Tuesday afternoon, the Vikings sold 2,000 season tickets, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Also, fans gobbled up 6,000 single-game tickets.
That said, seats reportedly remained available for each home game, as of early Tuesday evening.
And the arrival of Favre has caused the Vikings to pull some potential bargains off the table. Per Darren Rovell of CNBC, a half-season ticket deal was available early Tuesday. By the time Favre joined the team, that option was long gone.
Meanwhile, the Vikings are pimping plenty of Favre gear. The Favre shot glass is our own favorite, given the prevalance of DUI charges filed over the years against Vikings players.
The might want to keep some of those shot glasses around the locker room this year. And if they don’t excel this year, Jobu is gonna need a refill.
