Maybe just a tad early, but since the town is buzzing with all of the preparations for next year's SB at US Bank - I thought I'd start this up.

Not sure I'm crazy about the "Bold North" label - but whatever.

This video is kind of fun because it features a bunch of Minnesota sites and people, and ends with the aging Bud Grant who I hope makes it long enough to see his purple team take home the trophy.

I know the City would not change the Chicago Avenue to Vikings Way or whatever Lester was trying for. I thought the obvious Street/Avenue name change at the stadium should have been Grant Avenue and that probably could have happened. Maybe it can still be done for a couple of blocks before the Super Bowl.

Not to the game, but tomorrow and Thursday I'll be in the Skyways wearing my super cool Crew 52 gear. So if you need directions, come find me. Of course, if you could find me in that mass of tangled Skyways, you probably would have already found what you're looking for.

Someone might need to hold me back if I see anyone wearing Eagles colors.

Tempting, but I don't want to stoop to their level. I'll just shoot poison tipped darts at them in my mind.

That sums up how I feel David. I'm glad for the money that will pour into town, but honestly can't wait until it's over.

I was having trouble sleeping last night thinking about this.

I think the league should step up and be proactive announcing they would invest 10 million dollars into this. They should sponsor a task force of Philadelphia police officers who do a major sting operation at the games. Imagine if they had 200 (yes, 200!) undercover cops at games and around the stadium before the games. Imagine if the word gets out that 50 people get arrested- many of them right there during the game. In my mind I was longing for violent arrests, but I guess that the police can't do that, but again in my mind I was fantasizing that the arrests could be violent with excessive force. I also thought that the punishment would be 30 days in jail plus a 10 grand fine with a felony on their record. Also, I thought that there should be no tv in their jail. (no football games) You can see, I obviously thought about this a lot. If they refused to pay the fine, then the jail time would kick up to 6 months. Also, during that time the family could not receive public financial support through welfare. That is over the top, but I wanted them to suffer.

I actually worried about this happening before the game because I had already heard things about the Philly fans. This was not a one time deal for them and that's why the league does need to step up. I believe the Vikings have to travel to Philly again next season. If I'm the Vikings at a winter meeting, I tell the league that I don't allow my team to play there and I forfeit the game. (huge loss of money for Philadelphia) unless the league steps up to do something about this issue. There's a very good chance that the opening game could be with the Vikings next season. I believe we play both the Eagles and the Patriots on the road next season. Tough season ahead. Correct me if I'm wrong.

They could put surveillance cameras all throughout the stands with active monitoring before and after the games. Let the light of day shine on what people do and let people know publicly what you are doing as prevention.

Also forfeiture of season tickets, with no refund. Lifetime ban from the stadium. If you had the tickets from a season ticket holder, then that person forfeits their season tickets.

It would only take one time of doing this and the problem would be ended. Say your home stadium doesn't want to participate? Fine - no alcohol sales allowed.

Not sure how something like this would play out in the tailgating arena. Certainly a lot of the problems reside there, in that less controlled environment.

I'm torn.

If Eagles win, maybe they have SB hangover and we can surpass them next year.

If Pats win, Eagles will be getting Wentz back plus the hunger of getting back to SB. They could be tougher to beat than this year.

Also, Misery loves company. Nice to see another team get close to our SB loss record.

Is this the SB gameday thread?

Go Eagles! They've never won a SB. I hope this is the year! Sick of the Pats and their mostly bandwagon fans. The last thing I want to see is another SB win for moody and miserable Belichick.

No SB festivities for me today. Still on the fence on whether or not I'll tune into the game at KO. Haven't watched one second of sports anything in 2 weeks.

Whichever way I lean **** the Eagles and their fans. Hope it's the most embarrassing loss in SB history.

If i was betting I would take the Eagles and the points. I think they are the most balanced and physical of the two teams.
I'm a bit bitter about how our fans were treated so I do hope the Patriots win.

Let me tell you a little story about the way some Vikings fans treated Eagles fans at the Dome in a playoff game about 8 or 9 years ago. We were sitting behind one of the endzones, about 15 rows up. Sat right next to a really nice married couple...Eagles fans. They had their little newborn baby with them wearing a little Eagles outfit. There was a group of drunk Vikings fans right behind us that yelled at the parents "we're gonna punt your baby right onto the field!!!" Vikings fans are no better or worse than any other team's fans when it comes to being assholes. Thanks to that experience, my wife said we are never going to another Vikings or any NFL game ever again. And I don't blame her one bit.

No question there are fans everywhere where many would not want their children exposed. Some are worse than others. Some are known for being more hostile. Philadelphia appears to be a bit more on the hostile side and I would not take my children there wearing the Vikings colors. Would you?
