cajunvike, I said "OK Zeus starting a thread" because in the General Tailgating thread he mentioned for me to start one up.
I didn't reply to you privately in case someone else was wondering why I said that.

Oops one more question for you, when you say "huge tailgate setup there"
where is there?
I've been looking at parking passes and I noticed some say blue, etc.
Are you just going to park wherever you get a spot, or is there an area?

I'm a girl, I like details.

Should be a great time and Christmas well spent! Would be nice to finally party with some of you old salty dogs!

Woo hoo, got our condo booked.
We're staying in the Westgate Community, stones throw away from the Stadium and festivities.

Now just need to get 3 tix and we're all set.

So seriously, what parking lot are you guys thinking of setting up Viking Camp?
There's a nice Orange lot, Blue Lot, Green Lot, Brown Lot.
The Orange one has grass.

My wife and I got our tickets yesterday.
We'll be meeting some friends there so the trip is serving 2 purposes but, really, may the Vikings play well from here on so the game has some significance.
But, oh well, average temps in Phoenix in December are mid-60's, a far cry from what it will be here in Nebraska, so it should be fun.

One of our crew has a spot in the Orange Lot.
The tix I am getting have a spot in the Blue lot.
I will be putting up the Vikes Pop up tent, bringing a small grill etc.


The AZ fans are a little rowdy so becareful, the sun does things to your brain (some of em are real jerks).........It will be a crazy atmosphere out there PURPLE EVERYWHERE!

Cant wait!
And I get to go to the Packer home game too..........Woohoo!

Hey slav, thanks for the response on the parking lot, I'm still w/out tix and parking so this will help knowing they'll be purple in orange and blue.

Are you serious about the fans?
I've only been to San Diego, San Fran and MN and all opposing teams were great.
Oh well, I'll have my Cardinal fan Dad with me so he can keep them at bay.

Our dream is to go to LBF for a Packer/Vikes game.
Lucky you!!

It used to be worse when they were at Sun Devil Stadium, there would always be fights, heckling etc.
But since it is in Glendale, and you are going with a local you will be fine.
Plus there will be a ton of Purple there this year.

I go to the game in MN every year against the Pack but someday our group will hit LBF.

I'll be there.
I live in AZ, and my dad is flying down from MN for the game.
We're getting season tickets from my sister's boss.
We'll be 2nd row, 30 yard line :), Cardinal side though :(.

We were at the last game the Vikings played in AZ, so I figure they owe us a win this time.

Oh my--saaaaweeet seats!
We're Vikes side but more by the end zone, 12th row.
It'll be my first (and sadly probably last) game with my dad (and of course my bleeding purple Brian).
Haven't told my Dad yet where our seats are, can't wait to surprise him.
This will also be his first tailgating party.

Anyway, I'll have my V on my face.
Just trying to think of a sign now to hold up.
Hmmmmm.
Any ideas?

I will be sitting in the 9th row of the upper deck right on the 50 yard line.
I've only been to 3 Vikes games before and all have been losses (including the infamous 03 Cards game).

For those who were concerned with tailgating, there is actually a big lawn that is specifically set aside for just that purpose.
So if anyone wants to tailgate, let me know.

We got our tickets on ticketmaster and they came with a brown parking pass. We are meeting up with friends who live in Arizona.
Don't even know how we'd go about setting something up but we'd surely like to meet up with people even just to get some pics for the site.

And the parking link:

I live in Arizona and have had my tickets for months now. I have not been to a Vikings game since they came here last time and the Cardinals knocked us out of the playoffs on that last second pass. What a orrible experience that was. Hopefully this game will be better. We are a better team than we were then, but so are the Cardinals. SKOL!

As far as how "bad" the Cardinal fans are....I do not agree with that. I have lived in AZ for 10 years and have been to many Cardinal games and its just as normal as any other football game. Only the people that can't handle their alcohol are the ones that start problems. No worries fellow Vikings fans, all is well in Arizona, the sun will be shinning as usual and it will be great weather for football.... and the stadium IS AWESOME. Hope you all ejoy yourself.

Are we hitting up the BLUE LOT for tailgating... for sure?

Some people just don't understand AZ weather. Guarantee you would love to be here right now. The weather is great this time of year (High 60's - Low 70's). The only really bad months are June, July and August when it reaches 115+. But it is a dry heat, not humid at all. So it doesnt feel as sticky. Also, I am an hour drive away from snow as well because it does snow up north.

AZ weather is awesome.
115 degrees feels like about 80 degrees.
I lived in Tucson for 14 months from Aug 2005 till Oct 2006.
Loved it.
Much better than the humidity and heat in Florida imo.
Others don't like it but I sure as hell loved it.
Wish I could be there for the game.
I need to go back to the AZ and visit.

We are coming down from Payson so we might get there about 12:30.

We are coming down from Payson Friday night for the State Championship football game, a relative is in that.

I've lived it Tucson for the last 1.5 years, but I lived for 16 years in Tempe.

Love the AZ weather... grew up in IA and MN and just had to get out.
Every time I go back it's either snow/ice or mosquitos.
IMO, the only thing AZ is missing is the Vikings.

Hi y'all!!

I am Phoenix resident of 14 years, formally from South Dakota... and grew up a diehard Vikings fan!
I now have season tickets to the Cardinals and am ALSO a Cardinals diehard fan.
But, I will be wearing my Peterson jersey on Sunday for the game!!
I will be tailgating in the Orange lot with my parents and a couple of friends... we typically park near the #22 sign... I'll have a black Toyota Highlander Hybrid if y'all want to come say hi!!
Also, we will be in section 124 for the game!
Just look for the jersey!! LOL
And it is going to be a chilly day for AZ so dress warm!!

We just got back from Westgate (by Jobing) and talked to a parking attendant.
"She said" to go by the smaller lot on the (I think) west of Jobing.
She said that lot was fun.
I don't know, we'll see in the morning, but we're shooting for the closest to Maryland St. (closest to the Stadium).

SO MUCH PURPLE at Westgate it was sooooo cool!
I had on my Vikings visor and Bri his shirt and it was soo cool.

Ok so I got the scoop on the blue lot. The PDF that was posted can be deceiving. It is not as big as it seems because their is the westgate, a movie theater and a hotel there. The guy informed my that Lot B, J, and G are the blue lot. G is the closest.

That would be Lot G. It is the closet to Maryland. Lot B is on the west side closet to 95th ave. Lot J is closet to Glendale Ave. on the 93rd ave side.

OK.. Here's the scoop guys... I am a season ticket holder but I park in the Orange lot by the Great Lawn.
If you are all parking in the blue lot, the best place to go would probably be the SW corner.. closest to Maryland and the 101.. There were some Vikings fans parked there a few games ago and you can set up in that corner as much as you want.
Don't pay attention to where the parking guys try to direct you.. go where YOU want in the lot!!
I always do!!
At the last game, there was a crew of Viking fans that I saw inside the stadium and they said they were gonna meet as a crew behind I think it was section 134ish.. I can't remember exactly where but it's around there... possibly before the game and at half time.
Again, I am a season ticket holder and if anyone needs help, let me know...

My name is Sandy and my cell is 602-228-5197.
I will be in the Orange lot near #22, south of the Great Lawn wearing my AP jersey and Cardinals hat!! LOL

The stadium is great!
Tailgating is fun!!

I posted earlier in this thread that I got my sister's boss's tickets for this game, 2nd row, 30 yard line, and that my dad was flying down to go to the game with me.
Well, he's here, and we have the tickets, but my sister went ahead and got her company tickets, 1st row, 30 yard line in the deck above us, which I consider even better than the ones I got.
Now she's going with her fiance.


Problem is, he's a Bears fan, and my sister has become one as well (She never cared for football before, so she was easy to subvert.)
Now, I'm going to the game with my dad, and 2 people wearing Bears jerseys.
My future brother-in-law is even bringing a sign asking for the Cardinals to give him an early Christmas present.

All I can say is, we better win tomorrow (today now), or it's going to be a miserable day...

Two in a row is a good start

He didn't play bad the first two games no matter what you guys think.. I supported that with stats.. Even though he looked lost he still played decent.. Expecially with the circumstances

He certainly was today.
That long throw to Berrian he dropped in perfectly.
The TD on the slant to Rice was nice, and the pump and go with Wade for the TD was textbook beautifully executed.
He fired that ball in there perfectly, if he hadn't #24 on Arizona might have been able to pick that off.
Great road game by everyone overall all three phases.

I thought the special teams coverage units looked miles better than earlier in the season, nice to get a punt return for TD (thanks Berrian!), and obviously the defense and running game were awesome.
I hope Pat is okay we'll need him next week against Turner, Norwood, and company.

Great road win today.

I've got a bunch of pictures from the game that I'll try and post tomorrow.
My dad and I weren't on the 30 yard line like I thought we would be, rather we were in the second row by the endzone.
Four of the Vikings five TDs happened in the opposite endzone, and Taylor fumbled on the 9 yard line right in front of us, but we still had a great time.

We were leading a sea of purple in cheering for the Vikings all game, it was awesome.

We were right above you. There was a lot of purple down there. LOL, there was purple everywhere. I have pics too but I forgot my cord. I will post them on Wednesday when I get back to frozen WI.

That was SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!!
Now that I've done the tailgating at UoP, piece of cake.
Parking lot was 1/2 purple 1/2 red and the comments were for the most part, playful fun.
And the outhouses were purple!
LOL Of course some cardinal had to say something about that, funny.

Game was full of purple!
Couple in front of us came out here from back East and were super duper young.
My dad had one cards fan next to him, the rest purple, too funny.


We've got pics too that I'll post as well.

Oh and after in section 135-ish where we were, there was singing and clapping after the game.
I loved when our theme song was sung, Skol Vikings Let's Go!!!
Oh and to hear our horn being blown all day was awesome, got everyone fired up.
Good times.
