According to Norse mythology, the Gjallarhorn was sounded to announce the arrival of the gods. In 2007, the Gjallarhorn found a new home at Mall of America Field and, now signals THE VIKINGS ARE COMING and the start of a great battle on the gridiron. Signaling the entrance of the team is something few can lay claim to. To date, the following Honorary Vikings have been chosen to perform this ceremonial task:
