If you're headed to Nashville, Tennessee, this Sunday for the Vikings game against the Titans you may find a collection of Vikings super fans who reside in the state.

They go by the Nashville Norsemen -- a club organized by Tony Pegel and he has a request for Vikings and Titans fans who plan to attend the game.

With Teddy Bridgewater out for the season, Pegel is encouraging all fans to drop off a teddy bear, which will be donated to kids at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. The fans will be collecting bears at the Quality Inn across the street from Nissan Stadium.

The group started a hashtag Teddies4Teddy. They hope to get Bridgewater's attention and make the movement a bigger project that goes beyond Sunday's game.

Fans can also take pictures using the hashtag #Teddies4Teddy, while tagging @teddyb_h2o, @Vikings, @titans and @nashvllnorsemen.

According to their twitter page, Vikings President and co-owner Mark Wilf plans to stop by.


With the teddy bears being donated to the local hospital, Pegel reminds fans that they must be in new condition. If you'd like more information on the group and the project, you can check out their Facebook page.
