    Season Tickets Arrived!

    That wonderful envelope from the Vikings arrived today!

    Each ticket has an head shot of a current Vikings, with the exception of the Detroit game, which has a silver foil embossed image of the Metrodome with the Minneapolis skyline behind it, and the words 'FINAL GAME' around it.



    Here is the image breakdown:
    Game 1 - Kevin Williams, home uniform (not sure on this one...)
    Game 2 - Jerome Felton, away
    Game 3 - Christian Ponder, home
    Game 4 - Kyle Rudolph, away
    Game 5 - Greg Jennings, home
    Game 6 - Chad Greenway, home
    Game 7 - Adrian Peterson, away
    Game 8 - Jared Allen, Home
    Game 9 - Metrodome

    I have to admit. Seeing the words 'Final Game' around the Metrodome image made me a bit sad. Not THAT sad, but there were some great memories there.

    And they should have put final REGULAR SEASON game, because the final game at the Metrodome will be the NFC Championship game this year...

    Mine came in yesterday. I was surprised to be honest. I usually get them around the 14th. I found it funny that as I got the mail I got the email saying I should be expecting my tickets. I noticed there was no form to get extra tickets. I got one every year with my tickets. Seeing the last ticket was bittersweet more so because it might be my last year as a season ticket holder.

    The extra ticket form came out about a month ago. I believe the deadline to get them was back in June.

    Out of curiosity, why is this your last year as a holder?

    That explains why I didn't get the extra ticket form. I wasn't home so it probably got thrown out. This may be my last year because I graduate in May and I do not know if I will remain in Minnesota. I want to but I wont know for sure until May.

    Color me green with envy every year you guys post a thread like this. Damn I wish I was close enough to get some of my very own.

    Gonna try to get to a home game this year (fingers crossed) if the dang cut backs will slow a bit.

    Reasons you should buy them anyway:
    1. If you have tickets your more likely to get to at least one game each year.
    2. NFL ticket exchange makes selling tickets super easy, you can apply the profits to the following years season tickets. Green Bay, Chicago, and the final game in the dome are guaranteed(not actually guaranteed) to sell well over face value.
    3. Guaranteed opportunity to buy playoff tickets
    4. Chance to buy Super Bowl tickets if the Vikings ever make it.
    5. Guaranteed tickets to the new stadium in just 3 years.

    I could have made money last year just selling the Packer tickets and going to all the other games, of course I went and it was epic.
    Just food for thought.

    Very well rounded discussion points. You left off, convincing Wildwoman that I need to buy season tickets that I won't use.

    Easier to get her to chunk up the change to go once a year.
