The husband gave me a call last night saying a friend of ours had extra tickets to the Viking Draft Party and would I mind if he and the boy went. Of course I wouldn't let him pass up this opportunity. Especially since I knew, given who he was going with, they would provide me with material. And fodder they gave me.
Apparently, Sasquatch put in an early appearance:
Not many even saw him, he moved so quickly. Hence the blur.
I thoroughly enjoyed my boys showing the cheerleaders how to do "toe pops" as they called them.
Um...boys...they're called "digs". Any father/brother with sisters involved in dance for 11 years would know that. And I'm sure the cheerleaders found your "toe pops"...um...amusing.
But I doubt it was as amusing as the "Forrest Gump" wave.Oh, to have a bubble cartoon over those cheerleaders heads...the fun I could have.
All in all it was a fairly early night. They left after the Vikings chose FSU's Christian Ponder (which some say was a bad move. Given the Vikings NEED for a QB and the fact that this was the first time since 1999 that 3 QBs went in the top 10, I'm going to say we're lucky to have him. Brains AND brawn...UFF-ta!) and were home by 930 with t-shirts, Vikings glasses (the drinking variety) and various paraphernalia.With apologies to Mel Brooks..."It's good to know the Kings".
