While attendance was what one might call ‘low', I still personally had a great time at the Floridian Vikings Get-Together a few weeks back. Nothing quite like seeing Christian Ponder begin to prove himself in the company of my fellow Viking Norsemen. (And Norsewomen.) And I'd like to think that the fun was shared by all- although we did basically inadvertently cheer for a woman nearly catching herself on fire at one point. (It's kinda a long story.)
So... let's do it again! While I was kind of hoping to do it for Green Bay round two, unfortunately that won't be working for me personally. My next thought was the season closer at home against Chicago, but something tells me that attendance might be low on January 1st at 1:00pm. So, keeping with the tradition of hosting for divisional games, let's do this for Detroit round two, on Sunday, December 11th at 4:30pm.
We can do it at the same venue as before- personally, I liked it as it was rather quiet, and yet at the same time very accommodating for a group of screaming fans. Plus I thought the food and beverages were pretty solid to boot. If those who attended would like to try something different, however, shoot me an email/ call/ text and I'll find alternate viewing spots.
I hope everyone who made it last time can attend again- and let's see a few more, too. And just like before, hey, if you live out of Florida but want to do a bit of a ‘snowbird' trip down for the weekend and cap it off with a Vikings victory (crosses fingers), then of course you're more than welcome. Hard for a Floridian who is a fan of the Minnesota Vikings to be a ‘stateist'.
Also just like last time, shoot me an RSVP text/ email/ call. Remember, I screen- so you won't get me right away if you do call, but leave a voice message and I'll get right back to you.
