The Minnesota Vikings continue to polish up their brand new stadium in time for the start of the 2016 NFL season. Among the new features of the stadium is one giant horn.
The Vikings have installed a massive Gjallarhorn, which has typically been used before each game by an honorary captain before the home team takes the field, in the new gigs, and the first images of it give you a sense just how big it is.

Of course, the Vikings have had a massive horn on hand for years now, but needed a new one for the new digs after their old one shattered like so many championship dreams of Vikings fans before last season’s NFC Wild Card matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.
