I am thinking the Oct game against the Panthers this year (October 13th I think)

After the bye week not to late in the year (will have to chance the weather)

Good team but winnable game .. Let me know what you guys think

Damn really wanted to make it to a game for the last season in the dome but unless circumstances change substantially, it doesn't look like it's in the cards. I'll shoot for making a game in the new stadium I guess.

What does this "party" consist of? Meeting up and saying hi? :)

Either way, by the looks of the very few responses, your "party" is going to be tiny.

Come on VMB members, make plans to go! Yeesh!

I, for one, want to see this "Demi" character in person...just for one minute until I walk away very, very quickly to avoid catching any of the negative attitude. LOL. Just playin', Demi. ;)

Melanie I have come a few times to Minnesota and met people from the room ..

We will try and tailgate and have some beers or Jello shots and talk about the Vikings

and get to know each other. I walk around a little too. There is usually a few things going

on in the tail gates. Ziggy Wilf comes through the parking lot and shakes hands once in

a while. Some ex players are around signing things. Vikings Fans tend to be very cool

I have sat and had adult beverages with people I didn't even know and just talked about

the team.

I get it. I've done this sort of thing, too. But, I met people from WeAreVikingsFans.com. Hanging out with CheeseFree and Diggz is the best. :) Anyways, I get it. I just hope more people show up for your little VMB get together. I'll be at the Browns game, but not sure if I'll stop by. I don't know anyone well enough to bother. :P The weather should be great, and I love walking around and checking everything out...so we'll see!

And yes, the Vikings fans who attend the games are freaking awesome. I've had some of the best memories with complete strangers. At the draft party, I sat and talked with this lawyer from Florida for hours. We were pals by the end! We never exchanged information or anything, but he comes to all of the draft parties so I'll have to attend next year and go find him! lol Actually attending the games and other Vikings events is really what makes being a fan special. I love going so much because it's much better to be surrounded by thousands of people who "get it" rather than screaming at my TV alone at my place. lol. I love people who get it! I love all the purple fans! I can't wait to go back and see all my purple people! There are more Bears and Packers fans here than anything. Blah.

I think my youngest boy is coming with me (18 in January)....

I tried to get the whole room to come to the first one (November 4th 2007) Vikings vs SD

that's right the 296 Game and I was sitting next to Kansas Mike for that one..


I hope twenty people show up, but in the end its up to them and I will have a great time
if its only me there

I'll be in 102. Row 16. Not too shabby.

It'll be my best seat this season. Went the cheaper route with the Packers game and the Lions game. Alright, the Lions game was cheaper--the Packers game wasn't. lol. People act like that game is the Super Bowl or something! They jack up the prices SO much. Ridiculous!

Is that part of the reason? I think people re-selling their tickets are just plain greedballs; that's what I think. I've seen tickets in the very, very top area of the Dome for over $100. They were like $120 and up for like row 30 in the top level. That's absurd. :) What do you think those tickets are at face value? $15 to $20? A little more? Either way, $120 to be on the top top top. No way. :P

It's that and the rivalry, which makes more Vikes fans want to go too.

$15-20 face? no way, the cheapest face this year is $41.

Post Re: VMB party at the Metrodome next season..??
Okay, but that's still triple the price. Still insane. :)

I get the rivalry and such, but I think people take it a little far when trying to re-sell their tickets. That's what I'm saying. I've been buying tickets for a quite of few years now, and the Packers game is always ridiculous. For instance, a friend of a friend has REALLY good seats behind the Vikings sideline. He sells a lot of them. Last year, I could have gotten those seats for $150 each for the Niners game...and some other game I asked about. I contacted him about the Packers game for this season, just one short year later, $400 a pop. Get real. lol. I get it, it's the Packers...but, dude. Really? A Packers game is worth 3 times as much as others? That's a stretch to me. The rivalry makes it better, but not that much better. Heck, I paid less than a third of that to attend the Vikings/Cowboys playoff game a few years ago. Not nearly as good of seats, but they were decent. I still stand by my thoughts that people are over the top with their Packers tickets. Not everyone is super, duper greedy--but most are.

I'm only going to the Packers game this year because my coworker wanted to. I usually avoid the Packers game for this reason, but it being the last year in the Dome...heck, I'll go! :) But, it took some convincing. lol. I'm actually more excited about the Browns and Lions games. I like winning, and I feel like those are going to be wins. :) The Packers...eh. It's going to be tough. And quite frankly, I don't want to put up with a Packers fan for another day if things don't go our way! lol. I'm not a nice person when we lose to the Packers. I have to work with this person, so I have to be nice for that night and all the way back home. :shock: Not. Easy. Sunday Night Football should be fun though. I'll stop whining about the prices. lol. Hee! We better win! I'm already getting anxiety! :)

Yes there were three NFL records that day ..

Adrian Peterson ran for 296 yards

Fricking stupid Childress kicked a really long field goal and it went short ... late in the 2nd quarter
San Diego players grabs the ball 9 yards deep in the end zone and runs it back for 109 yards ..
The stadium was stunned and one fan screamed, "WHAT THE FUDGE POP!!!" He said something else though..
That one fan voiced the frustration of thousands of fans...

The other NFL record was the first NFL rookie to run fro over 200 Yards twice in a rookie season

It was a total of three NFL records in one game..

Peterson only had like 51 yards or something in the first half.. The whole second half every time he touched
the ball he went for 35-60 yards and scored.

To be honest I was so pumped up that I didn't even realize how great a game it was until they were flashing 250
yards on the Jumbo tron ...

I think about 10000 fans stayed after the game was over unable to leave the electric stadium ..

One of the greatest days of my life ...

I'd definitely come if I was regional. But the cost of airfare from LAX is ridiculous due to the Delta monopoly. Have a great time all.

Check out Spirit Airlines. New low cost carrier serving Minneapolis. They fly to LAX via Vegas - I've made it out to LAX ~$200 or so a couple of times. I haven't had any problems with them, and the seats I think are actually more comfortable than Delta! They ding you for luggage and snacks and beverages, but that's to be expected with their business model

I flew them to Chicago once, if you only have a backpack it's free.
