The Vikings have not been to the Super Bowl since the late 1970s. And in more recent years, the Minnesota home team has not even come close to a winning season. Nonetheless, football fans across Minnesota will be sitting down to watch the big game on Sunday â if only for the commercials.
If you are among the many Minnesotans who have cleared their calendar for Super Bowl Sunday, please remember that roads and highways will be more dangerous than usual, both physically and legally. Because Super Bowl Sunday tends to be among the biggest drinking days of the year, law enforcement agencies across the state respond by ramping up driving patrols and arrests.
