    Been there for a Twins game so I'm not sure how it is during the football season. What exactly are you looking for .. Information wise?

    I've looked at a few sites for tailgating just doing some research. Apparently there is a large area for tailgating but it is where they are planning on building the new Twins stadium. So, there is a chance that tailgate area won't be there .. Tailgating is addressed a little on Wikipedia.

    I'm not sure about good seats vs bad seats during a football game. But, it does seem like most would be pretty good. For baseball especially, it seemed like you were very close to the action so I think the same would be true for football.

    I live in here in Minneapolis but have only been to one football game in the 4 years I've been here. My seats were up in the rafters but I don't recall the view of the game being that bad. I'll see what I can dig up on tailgating, etc. I definitely plan on going to the game.

    Here is some helpful info i researched...

    1. Tickets as of now are as cheap as 25 bux ea. Ima wait until the season starts to see if they go cheaper. Minn isnt going to do much so Im assuming they will.

    2. Flights from San Diego to Minn are roughly about 250 RT.

    3. Hotels are running around 100 bux a nite.

    Im planning to make this trip with a bud of mine. Hopefully we can all get together. Not sure about tailgating. It will be hard getting a grill and cooler there.

    4. Maybe we can all purchase tickets at the same time off the same website to guarentee same section seating.

    from link - The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, usually simply called The Metrodome or The Dome, and often nicknamed the Homerdome [​IMG] (even though in reality it is no friendlier to the long ball than average[2]), is a domed sports stadium in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. It replaced Metropolitan Stadium, which was on the current site of the Mall of America in Bloomington, and Memorial Stadium on the University of Minnesota campus.

    That was posted at Chargers.com. Hopefully it will help any of you looking for tickets to the Viqueens game.

    Definitely will. It should be fun. I think there will be a good amount of charger fans. Anything over a 100 in Minnesota should be cool. Gunna be nothing like SF last year.
