Sports Power Weekends, Inc. Creates “The Ultimate Minnesota Sports Fan Experience

Meet-and-Greet with 1991 World Series MVP and Minnesota Twins Legend Jack Morris; Packers-Vikings Game at Mall of America Field on Sunday, October 23

Sports Power Weekends, Inc., a company that creates unforgettable experiences for sports fans throughout the country, is rolling out an incredible two-for-one experience that is a must-have for any Minnesota sports fanatic. On Sunday, October 23, 2011, the week of the 20th anniversary of the Minnesota Twins winning the 1991 World Series, Sports Power Weekends, Inc. will be conducting a meet-and-greet with Jack Morris, whose Game 7 10-inning shutout propelled the Twins to that title and the World Series MVP. That same afternoon, fans will attend the Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings game at Mall of America Field. This game between the two NFC North foes will mark the 100th meeting in the history of their storied rivalry.

“I look forward to meeting and speaking with some of the biggest sports fans in Minnesota, which just might have the best fans in the entire country,” said Morris, who now calls Minnesota Twins games for the Twins Radio Network. “I always love to reminisce with fans about Game 7 and what we were able to accomplish in 1991. It will be a great 20th anniversary celebration!”

The one-hour meet-and-greet, featuring autographs and photos with Morris, will be held at Kieran’s Irish Pub in downtown Minneapolis (601 1st Avenue North) from 12-1 PM (CT). A raffle will be held with prizes such as tickets to an upcoming 2011 Minnesota Vikings home game, 1991 World Series DVDs, Twins paraphernalia autographed by Morris, and local restaurant gift cards.

“We are very excited to announce this unforgettable experience for Minnesota sports fans,” said Jared Cooper, CEO of Sports Power Weekends, Inc. “Sunday, October 23 will be a celebration of Minnesota sports as fans will be able to relive the glory of their Twins’ 1991 World Series triumph with the undisputed hero of that series, Jack Morris. They will then seamlessly transition to the historic 100th meeting between the Packers and Vikings just down the road.”

Kickoff between the Packers and Vikings is set for 3:15 PM CT at Mall of America Field. Two of the bright young offensive stars in the NFL will face off as Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings look to defend their home turf against Aaron Rodgers and the defending Super Bowl champion Packers.
