    Norm!

    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.

    Zeus:
    "Hey Norm!
    Where's your purple??"
    Norm:
    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."
    Zeus:
    (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.

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
