NFL football. We can't get enough of it. Between the draft in the spring and training camp in late summer, professional football is nearly a year-round passion for many. The Minnesota Vikings announced details this week for training camp at TCO Stadium in Eagan. There are three levels of ticket prices to attend training camp, from free to $10 according to the Star Tribune.

The team will hold several premier practices including the first one on Saturday, July 30. That practice will be without pads. The first padded practice is Monday, August 1. Visit the Vikings website for all the details and dates of training camp.

Full-contact sessions are scheduled for August 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 17, and 18. Those final two dates will be held jointly with the San Francisco 49ers. The teams play an exhibition game at US Bank Stadium on Saturday, August 30 at 6 pm. Practices without pads are set for August 2, 7, 12, and 16.

Here They Are - Minnesota's Last Six Old School Drive-In Movie Theaters

It's amazing to think that we shrunk from 80 drive-ins in the 50s to 6 now. And by amazing, I mean amazingly good luck. We have some in different parts of the state so no matter where you live, you can get to one. Some are not so close to us, but with only six in the state, that kinda thing is going to happen.

A big thank you to Drive-In Movie.com, it is a super complete site. Check them when you travel, you may luck into a great night of entertainment and nostalgia.
