Can you believe it's almost time for another great season of Vikings football?

Got the word from Webby that PPO will once again be sponsoring Gameday Tailgating in Purple Lot #1, in the shadow of the Dome.

The Home Opener vs. Tampa Bay is set for Sunday, September 18th!

All are welcome

Especially the newbs! I promise you'll have a great time and be welcome by everyone.

I had only a few posts as a newb before the home opener in 2005, went to the PP.O. tailgate which was also my 1st tailgate ever & have been a member of the PP.O. family ever since.

As the others have said, absolutely. On many occasions, we have even welcomed fans of other teams who have made the trek to the Dome to watch a game there for the first time.

Add your name to the list and watch this thread for all of the details on where to find us, what you can bring (if you want to bring anything) and what the PPO tailgate experience is all about.

Just stay sober at the wedding, make a bed in the back of the vehicle for the wife and hit the open road at 1:00AM when the part starts to die down!

Sober at a wedding, get serious.
A better idea might be to secretly hire a gorgeous prostitute to seduce the groom, then tip off the bride, causing her to call off the wedding there by freeing you to go to the game.

What kindof defense is that.

Nothing happens on a football day but football my friends. Nothing. B)

I liked our good friend Jmcdon00's idea the best so far....

Awesome.. We'll definitely try to make over there. I've been to quite a few games but never get there early enough to wander through the tailgate lots. We decided to stay over night Saturday night so we'll have more time Sunday morning. Where's a good place to get drink at on Saturday night? We're staying close to MOA.

Might be worth taking the light rail into downtown Mpls Saturday night. Not much going on out by MOA other than your typical bar and grill setup. Just be sure to check the train schedule, or plan on taking a cab back to your hotel if you stay out late.

Tailgate starts around 6:00 AM with most people showing up between 8:00 and 10:00. If your coming from out of town I would try to be there by 8-8:30 to take in the whole experience. Tailgating is almost as much fun as the game itself.

I had only a few posts as a newb before the home opener in 2005, went to the PP.O. tailgate which was also my 1st tailgate ever & have been a member of the PP.O. family ever since.

Just 3 years ago, steve was a mentor for me. When i joined he welcomed me, and was even gracious enough to offer me a free ticket.

I have felt more then welcome ever since.

As for the tailgate, i try to do what i can financially to help the coordinators pay for food, beverages and tailgating parking pass.


I asked the wife what she thinks about me going, she told me "we'll see". Makes me feel like i'm 13 and asking if i can go to an all nighter at cheep skate. Better then no, i guess.

Well, I put the tix on ebay today. If I can't get a decent price for them (at least face) then I am going to do exactly that... (except the wife part - there is no way in hell she would be up to road tripping after a wedding)

I doubt it's much difficulty for her to get it in the can from the comfort of her own home, so that bribe may not be all that alluring.

The only advantage I can see at the tailgate is there are several people present (and likely willing) to give it to her in the can.

Thoughts?

Hello guys, My name is Brant. I have used this site a lot, mostly to acquire information on the greatest football team in the league, THE VIKINGS! I never really took the time to actually post but I'm going to the Vikings vs Bucs on September 18th with my 2 sons (12 and 11), of course they are crazy Vikings kids! I have seen over the years of using PPO, get togethers like this happen all the time pre game and im a VIKINGS FANATIC, I LOVE THIS TEAM! It would be cool to have a spot to hang out before the game to drink a beer and talk football. I'd love to help out in any way possible, by chipping in on tailgate cost, bring some food of some sort, whatever it may be..... and look, I was a star at training camp lol IM the second one on this cool Vikings video about this year's training camp....here is the link. http://www.startribune.com/video/127170493.html

You are welcome to stop by and join us. About the only thing I can suggest bringing would be beverages. We typically serve up a few brats on a grill. If you have a favorite something or another as a munchie, bring it with.

Hope to see you and the kids there.

FYI to everyone going to the game. With last weekend's taser incident in Jersey, the NFL has mandated better pat downs. Expect the lines to get in to be a bit longer this weekend.

I like a lot of other people actually make it a point of not wearing a jacket/sweatshirt unless i have to. If i want to make sure i have it for after the game, i take it off right away once inside.
65K people produces a lot of body heat.

It was actually cool at the dallas preseason game, probably because it was preseason, and there were just over 62k fans there, even though it was a 'sellout'.

Do you have a matching codpiece for your sweater vest?

Its supposed to be rainy and cold. We are likely not going to make it.

I'm thinking a pp.o dinner might be in order very soon so that everyone can meet the new member of the family. E, you are the one with the craziest schedule... and Z, I know you have a strict schedule to work with... so maybe you guys can agree on a date and we'll see how many can make it!

The official name is "Swest" The "W" can be pronounced with a "V" sound as it is in the land of the Vikings.

Don't feel bad just showing...just do it! We are setup by 6 AM every morning; people roll in between 8 and 10, sometimes early birds show up at 7. Helping breakdown before everyone goes in is what is really most appreciated....
