So this year, the Vikings were playing the Green Bay Packers at the Metrodome a few weeks before my mom's birthday. The Vikings vs Packers is the most sought-after game of the year around here, so we decided just to go for the tailgating, and not dish out all that cash for the game. I'm not a fair-weather fan, but spending a small fortune for a tickets to game that in all reality we would probably lose didn't seem like the best idea... sorry Vikings!!!
This year soon after we arrived to tailgate, it started raining... hard. But soon after that, it turned into a beautiful, sunny October afternoon. Everyone was having a blast, and even our rival Packer fans were fun to be around. People wear the craziest get ups and you know me, I'm a sucker for that!
One guy was dressed mankini style (see the top left corner) so we stopped over, because LOL... man in a bikini top! We were greeted with Jagermeister shots, kinda gross in my opinion, but it was ice cold and that helped! It turned out it was a really cool group of Canadians that drove a party bus 6 hours to come party and go to the game. Most of them were bar owners in Thunder Bay so they knew how to have a good time!
After a few fun hours of tailgating, they gave my mom, sister and me tickets to the game... FOR FREE!! It seems too good to be true, but it is! Thank you, Canada!! You guys are the best!
The vikings didn't win, but it was a very close game (only 6 points!) and the Vikings were ahead for most of the game, so it was super fun!
I feel like I know a good amount about football, but still don't know all the Ref Symbols and this really helped me out... LOL. I love the invisible sombrero!
Happy Birthday Mom!!
