<FONT face=Arial color=#0000ff

    size=2>8:30AM - Meet at my house and depart for TWA Dome.

<FONT face=Arial color=#0000ff

    size=2>9:00AM - 11:50AM - Beer, brats, cigars, music in front of the     Dome.
<FONT face=Arial color=#0000ff

      BLECH!  My second favorite 
      team is Tampa (they are half ex-vikings)  I dare say they will be 
      better than the Vikings this year.
      Charge that $5 to my 
      account.  Sorry.  
      The short story is: 
      Grew up in MN... my whole family 
      watched the Vikings... my grandfather was one of the announcers... I was 
      going to Purple Crush games at 6 years old with my mother in the Met 
      Stadium.  I was (still am) a tomboy and there was no girls football 
      or hockey back then.  There.  I said it.

        I thought that she was soooo overwhelmed by 
        the choices available that she decided to be an "outsider" and pick a 
        team from snow-bird country so she would be accepted in 
        After all she does have 3 Florida football 
        teams to choose from. Very confusing and it can upset your pears, 
        neighbors, and friends of you choose the wrong one.
         You can tell that she is not solid in 
        her choice and committed by the unique, colorful, and subliminal 
        signature? She is screaming for guidance and understanding. I offer to 
        her that she support the BRONCO'S and I will have my daughter-in-law ( 
        devout BRONCO fan) get with her and tailgate party to relieve the 
        ROR mª¿ªm
