Friends in High Places

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"
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".
