Forgot to mention this.....
So I was sitting in the terrace suite for Sunday's game (my buddy Eric's season tickets are in there), drinking a cold MGD (FREE!) and getting ready to enjoy the game.
A couple minutes before it started, two dudes come in and sit in the row in front of us, 2 or 3 seats down to my left.
One of the guys looked really familiar, and I started to rack my brain as to who it was.
Some TV talking head?
Local political wannabe?
And then it hit me - it was Norm Coleman, United States Senator from Minnesota.
As I sat there, slowly realizing I wasn't nearly drunk enough to start spouting comments like "Wow, the Democrats sure kicked Republican booty on Election Day", I noticed that Norm was drinking a Coke.
Well - that's probably good - he shouldn't get all sauced up in public.
The folks next to me chatted with him a little bit, and then, late in the 2nd quarter, Norm disappeared.
I'm sure to get an audience with Zygi or somesuch.
Late in the 3rd, Norm re-appeared.
As he walked back to his seat, I noticed he had a Wild jacket on, but nothing Vikings-related.
As you may have guessed - I was now drunk enough to talk to him.
Where's your purple??"
Mumbles something about not being able to get to too many games, making due with what he has, etc.
A couple minutes passes and I guess Norm was stewing over that exchange, because he turned to me and:
Norm: (Pointing to his Wild jacket) - "Hey - I'm a Minnesota guy."
(Spreading arms wide) - "I don't see any ice out there, Norm."
That was about the time I noticed that Norm now had a beer.
Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
