Thanks for the postive feedback. The tickets are free ($1800 each face value per the email I recvd).
It will be an expensive trip because I have to pay for the airfare and the hotel. The reservations have already been made. I had to submit my info and my guest's info for a background check. Apparently they screen everyone that will get close to the players.
Expensive trip, but I won't pass it up.
The other huge downside is my wife can not go. I mentioned in my first post (intro) that she is a huge football fan. She is due with our second child Feb 19. She can't fly, so she tried to convince me to drive from San Diego to Detroit. While she's 9 months pregnant? In possible snow? What happens if she goes into labor while I'm on a highway in the middle of nowhere?
She even talked about inducing labor and having our son early, so she could make the trip. Now that is a hardcore football fan! But to put everyone's mind at ease --- we won't risk the child's safety. Taking my best friend instead.
I even told her I won't go since she can't. I had to offer that even though I was praying she would tell me not to worry about it. Kind of like when you see your wife almost done with the dishes and you offer to help.

They act so chicken, they should come with a large drink and a biscuit

I'm so stoked right now. Just want to share with my fellow Viking fans..
The company I work for received two Super Bowl tickets which includes:
Access to a 24-hour lounge in the hotel featuring food & beverages.
Saturday night NFL party Ã¢â‚¬â€œ meet the NFL players.
more to come.
We had a drawing for the tickets (400 employees) and I won the them! Taking my buddy who is a Chargers fan. The only way this could more perfect is if it's a Charger/Viking Super Bowl. What are the chances of that???
Please do not consider this as bragging; I'm just sharing with people that share a common interest.

That is amazing that you won that. And I wouldn't say you are bragging, it's not every day you win Superbowl tickets and a prize package like that. I would be telling everyone and their brother if I had won them. Have fun and take lots of pics so you can post some for us to see.

The rigors of Spartan life. Leonidas is cast out into the wild, and survives the harsh winter to return to his home, when he is crowned King ....a Viking!
