Anybody have any big Super Bowl plans or traditions?

Since it's in Minneapolis this year, there's a ton of stuff going on around town. Taking the day off tomorrow to see some of the madness at the Mall of America tomorrow and possibly going downtown to see what's up. There is a zip line set up that goes across the Mississippi river because the Super Bowl committee thought that would be a good idea in winter in MN. We went past it last weekend but it was closed for the night.

We usually have a Super Bowl get together with friends and everyone makes different snacks for the game. We are hosting this year. Should be a good time.

How much are they charging for the zip line? That sounds fun but mostly cold.

I won't watch 1 second of the game, but I don't blame you for wanting to take a day off and check out the fun.

I'm not sure what the cost is. When I first heard about it I thought "Oh that's neat" then thought "Wait, it's gonne be January/February".

At least we can look forward to our next NFC championship loss in 7-10 years.

7-10 business years. They take weekends off.

I'm not doing a damn thing. Might order a pizza in. I was going to host a party if New England lost. I don't want to be surrounded by Patriot fans all night.

It was pretty neat. Saw lots of famous athletes. Got an autograph and pic with former Vikings DT Kevin Williams. Ate at Shake Shack for the first time.

Weird. Now that I'm looking on Tapatalk, they aren't loading but it still showed a preview pic before going into the thread. I'll try to fix soon.

Hmmm, fixed the duplicate issue, but still broken on the app. I'm guessing it's something with the image addresses being from google photos.

Yeah, maybe you shared the photos with Corey somehow on Google?

This would explain why the newspaper in the break room had "NIPPLEGATE" across the front page.
