Bleacher Report – Vikings

Hello Minnesota Vikings Fans!

Welcome to the Minnesota Vikings Fan Club of New Mexico!

Most of my adult years were spent in Minnesota so of course I became a Minnesota Vikings fan. I briefly moved to El Paso, TX where there was a very strong Minnesota Vikings fan club and was disappointed when I moved to the Albuquerque, New Mexico area and there wasn’t something equivalent here.

Did some research and tried to find what bars were friendly to sports and more importantly where I might find some Vikings fans. Some of the bars didn’t have a lot of screens and could only cater to other teams more popular here. Some were too small to have a sizeable crowd to support our team.

After talking to some people I thought it would make sense to try and start a club and find a place to meet. I have to admit I haven’t been to ever sports bar in the Albuquerque area, but it didn’t take long to find that Slate Street Billiards in Rio Rancho met my needs. Due to it being really big, they could cater to large crowds and could have different parts of the bar for various fans to congregate and root for their favorite teams. Furthermore, they offer specials to help entice people in for game day and after some initial conversation, will work with us to dedicate some space to the Minnesota Vikings fans.
