A few weeks ago the Minnesota Vikings played the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. This rivalry has always been a BFD, but never more so than now, with ex-packer star Brett Favre playing quarterback for the Vikes!!
In honor of this big game, my brother Jeff decided to a throw a football party termed "Farvapalooza". (He loves to name his parties...remember Porkapalooza from last summer?) What a hit both the game and party were! Jeff made 28 lbs of pork shoulder, which he smoked and then pulled to make sandwiches. Great stuff! There were around 30 people at the party and every last bite of the pork disappeared before the end of the evening!
One of the coolest new things that Jeff has bought this past summer (and this boy loves toys and gadgets!) is an outdoor movie theater. Giant Blow-up screen, hi-def mounted projector (removable) and mounted outdoor speakers! This photo was taken before it got dark out, so you can't see the images on the screen as clearly, but you can see the giant screen itself.
Here is a better view of the screen when it started to get dark out. Gotta love how the broadcasters always use Madden Football game to do their pre-game predictions, etc!
And apparently this hat makes me look younger because a few of Jeff's friends (pictured below) mistakenly thought I was Jeff's YOUNGER sister!! That made me feel great because I am actually 4 years older than Jeff! They are now my new best friends! lol. I thought they were so cute, she is a Vikings fan and he is a Packers fan. They wore their respective jerseys and also brought along their Vikings/Packers reversible blanket!!
Jeff was jealous of my cool new hat and decided to steal it from me for a minute.... (notice he is wearing Twins gear instead of Vikings??!! The following day was the Twins best game of the year!) Another classic Jeff pose.....
Vikings are now 6-0 baby!!!
