Ugh. My ex is a Vikings fan. Oh the loathing I have for that team. Apparantly you both have the same $$ management skills, too.


Your bro is right. Hit up the dome. You'll have more fun at a home game anyway.

And I already got to see the Vikings lose to the Colts in Minneapolis this season... Great time for my first experience! 8 rows up right behind the goal posts.

Close the browser, and I'll only charge $500 for the advice, leaving you with $500 more than you would have had if you clicked BUY.

See how helpful I am?

Everyone Exaggerates

Might have to venture over and find this place. I'll be going with my g/f's mom (her first game) so I'm going to try to get her the full experience once we get there.
