Minnesota Vikings 9 @ New Orleans Saints 14: The View from Section 140 in Pictures

Unless you're extremely observant you probably didn't notice that I haven't been around the past three days. That is all credit to the other hardworking front page contributors - Andrew, Dave and Hans - because they all have one of the most important traits needed for a job like this: reliability. Much thanks to them for everything. 

I was in the lovely city of Chicago to attend the nuptials of two good friends and was without internet access for the weekend. Because I left early Friday morning, I only had time Thursday night to do my usual writeup and never posted the requisite pictures to accompany it. So to continue the reliability theme of this introduction, I give to you my photos from the Saints victory over the Vikings on Thursday night. During the game it felt like I didn't take many pictures but as it turns out, there's a bunch. 

Make the jump to see them.

This picture makes it look like Roger Goodell and Mrs. Benson are about to start a heavy duty make out session.

I believe that is Roger Goodell's wife and daughters.

Fortunately, I didn't have to look at this all night.

The unveiling. I wonder how cool it is to sit right underneath and to be so close. 

 

Img_7854_medium

No player introductions. Probably didn't have enough time.
