Well, this is going to be interesting.

If you have tickets for Monday night's game at TCF Bank Stadium between the Vikings and the Bears, you'd better bring your running shoes. Here's how things are going to work.

If you have tickets for the 100-level of the Metrodome. . .

Ticket holders with lower-level tickets (100 level) will get lower-level seating access at TCF Bank Stadium (general admission) - UNTIL SEATING IS AT CAPACITY. Gates will open at 5:00 p.m. for those 100 level ticket holders with line queues starting at 4:00 p.m. The value of all lower-level tickets will be considered to be $77. If the face value of the original 100-level season ticket is greater than $77, a credit for the difference will be applied to the Season Ticket Owner's account toward 2011 season tickets. For single-game purchasers, a credit will be applied via Ticketmaster.

If you have tickets for the 200-level of the Metrodome. . .

Ticket holders with upper-level tickets (200 level) will only have upper level seating access at TCF Bank Stadium (general admission). Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. for those 200 level ticket holders. The value of all upper-level tickets will be considered to be $29. If the face value of the original 200-level season ticket is greater than $29, a credit for the difference will be applied to the Season Ticket Owner's account toward 2011 season tickets. For single-game purchasers, a credit will be applied via Ticketmaster.

If you're a season ticket holder and you don't go to the game. . .

Season Ticket Owners that do not use their tickets will receive full credit on their account if the ticket goes unused AND is mailed to the Vikings Ticket Office (425 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55415) POST-MARKED by Saturday, December 18.

Oh. . .last, but not least. . .hope you're sitting down for this one. . .

The Vikings and the University of Minnesota have agreed no alcoholic beverages will be served. No outside food or beverages will be allowed into the stadium. Game parking details will be announced in the coming days.

Getting to watch either Joe Webb or Patrick Ramsey quarterback this team in sub-freezing temperatures on what's turning out to be more of an ice rink than a football field without the benefit of alcohol?

Who am I kidding. . .I'd totally go if I were able.

In military parlance, we would refer to this as a "Charlie Foxtrot." (Explanation coming in the comments, if someone doesn't beat either Ted or I to it.) I certainly hope that things are much more well-organized on Monday night than this release makes it sound like they are.
