Football in August {2010}

Saturday, August 28, 2010

It was the Vikings last pre-season game against Seattle and you could feel the energy in the Dome now called Mall of America Field. I noticed this year it was extremely decked out in purple. It almost looked like the Twins (red, white and blue) had not even been there at all. The two cheerleaders in the right picture are friends of ours...Rachel and Nikki.

I went with my Dad.

I wore my #69 (Jared Allen) jersey and took a lot of pictures of him.

This one is my favorite.

It was Farve's first real game back as a Viking. I also took a lot of pictures of him.

Here are a couple of my favorites:

We drove to Bloomington by the MOA and road on the light rail. It was alright, but I felt like there was a lot of waiting. I have no problem with driving downtown as I know my way around, so I would rather drive then take it again. It was absolutely packed and I had to stand the whole way back (1/2 hour) and it was 10:30+ at night. Not a big deal, but I was already tired. Even though the Vikings lost, it was still a great night anyways.

As if I didn't get enough football on Saturday, my family got together for our fantasy football draft at Joe Sensors. It was a fun intense time as we tried a live draft this year. Joe Sensors has a pretty sweet set-up for this as you can tell from the picture.

They have several big screens like the one pictured. They are able to host many different groups. They also lure you in with a free app and a pitcher of beer with your reservation.

Wayne is the commissioner of the league. This is him with my Uncle Trick and then you can also see my Uncle John.

This is everyone else:

Dad, cousin Nicole and her boyfriend Al. My other cousin, Justin, was there but had to leave early.

And of course we can't do anything without snapping a super cute picture of us:

As you can see, we LOVE like football in our family! Yay for football season.
