I thought I would start this one, because there has been discussions in other threads about this.

Cajun, you take the lead on this one.

Some of us are planning on being there on Sept. 11, 2006 when the Vikings take on the Redskins at FedEx. This should be awesome. The first game of the season, and the first Monday Night Football game of the regular season on ESPN.

We want to find out who would like to be a part of it.

What if I visited you in September Ned, rather than August? Then we could both go to the game.

Just a thought.

Hmmmm let me know what you come up with Cajun, I am still trying to figure out what I am going to do about tickets but, I would need tickets for maybe 3 redskins fans as well.

My brother and I are thinking of driving down for this game. I'm still trying to convince my parents to let me do this but I'm pretty sure my brother wants to do it and I sure as hell do. If you're going for a block put me down but I'm not for sure on it yet.

I am gonna do everything I can to make it to this game. Not sure if I will need tix or not. If I do, it would be 2 to 4.

You can definitely make it back in NC in one night! I've done that trip the opposite way!

if you live in raleigh, according to google earth it's a 295 mile drive, which would take you 4h 52 min.


if you live in charlotte its 412 miles which would take you 7 hours 5 minutes. if you live somewhere else these should help you ballpark it

Hmm.. alright. I'll see what I can do. Considering that my brother will be in college next year i'm sure he'll be up to it.

NO SWEAT, PPE!!! I used to drive more than that from Houston to where my parents live in Louisiana all the time...my sisters make that trip all the time as well (and they live on the OTHER side of Houston, so it's even longer...more like 5 hours or more).

Odin is very interested in 2 tickets for this game if some sort of group tickets can be arranged...

Odin also is speaking in the third-person for no logical reason...

I don't know if it is do-able, but I am within three hours of there. Actually, we do flyovers in the area all the time. I would love to go.

Count me in, paid for my tickets aready Sect 105 row 17 seat 1,2,3,4. Two of those ticket most likely will be for sale. Me and my bro are going the only reason i bought all 4 they were only $150 a piece. So I would be willing to sell to someone on this site for the same price as long as you buy me a beer :) j/k, so pm my if intrested. If I get alot of pm's I pull a name out of a hat of something. Cant beat aisle seats!!!

Go Vikes!!!!

Yeah, i think I can make the drive. The only thing is convincing my brother to drive all the way up there. I'm pretty sure he'll do it though..

Tickets . . . Ha Ha . . . That's a good one. The Redskins have been sold out for like 40 years. :razz:

However . . .

If you can get your hands on some . . . we'll be down. We'd need 2 - 4 . . . all Viking Fans!

As a former resident of the area (Old Town Alexandria), I'd love to see a Redskin butt stomping! :cheers:

I think there would be a better chance to purchase tickets in MN out of the Visitor allowance. Just a thought!
