    When is it acceptable not to watch the Vikings game...

    ...from your regular spot on the couch that is?

    Well I hope one of those times is when you are down in your unfinished basement putting the finishing touches on your Vikings Themed "Man's Room".
    My wife wanted to continue painting in the basement we are trying to get finished by Christmas, so I told her I guess I could paint through the vikings game assuming I was actually in the Mans Room painting the official Home Depot Vikings Purple and Gold on the walls.

    Here are a couple of pictures of the project so far:

    The color is hard to get correctly on the digital image, but it looks pretty cool in person.

    Just so that you know I didnt miss the action, I had the game streaming on my laptop using my Slingbox sending the signal from upstairs through the wireless network.

    With my cooler full of beer, the day was enjoyable, even if the lines werent as straight as they might have otherwise been.

    I am looking forward to the finished project, and will keep some updates coming if anyone is interested.
    It should be pretty much done for the Super Bowl if it is needed.

    This is the room that I need to get some beer lights with a MN theme for.
    Unfortunately that might have to wait after all the money it took to finish the basement.
    I am just happy to get paint (and carpet next week) in there.

    The room looks wicked, I'm hoping to get my Vikes room in my basement done someday. Maybe I'll steal some of your ideas . It's O.K. to not watch the game, as long as you check on it like you.(Or of you're like me, who refuses to watch a game if BJ is playing. Waste of sunday ticket).
    WELL, I LL ASK HIM, BUT I DON T THINK HE WILL BE VERY KEEN. UH, HE S ALREADY GOT ONE, YOU SEE.

    You better hope Webby doesn't read that. You haven't seen the Purple Pride thrater yet, have you?
    ;D

    Nice looking room you have their Turboe. Can'twait to see the finished room. The colors do look great together even in the pics.

    How big of a TV are you putting in there?

    You must have taken that pic later in the game because that cooler full of beer........doesn't look so full anymore.

    Did you ever find those stadium seats you were looking for for that room?

    If not, might I make a couple of suggestions......

    Looks sweet.... would love to have a house where I could have a basement like that. Best I can manage is the small spare bedroom with my Vikes pics on the wall.lol
    Keep us updated on how it goes as I'm sure there are plenty here that would like to see the finished thing.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Nice Turbou, the lighting makes it pretty cool looking.
    anyway hope you get a even nicer room that it already is and you get some Vikings Furni in there
