Beasts, Babes, and Brutes: Football Tailgating Art

These photos were taken a few blocks from the metrodome in Minneapolis, the home of the Minnesota Vikings. Minnesotans treat tailgating like Mardi Gras, except that tailgating happens before every home game. The game against the Green Bay packers is the big one, and the theme of the Packers is Cheese. The Viking team colors are purple and Gold -- note the earrings, facial paint, underwear, and even one fan's contact lenses. If you like a gallery or pic vote for it in the lower left corner of your screen.


Consider a new book about Viking's fans that features some of the images in this gallery.

Here is a photo of some of the Viking Football Cheerleaders! They were riding through the tailgating lots hawking some photos of themselves.  Shameless self-promotion; can you blame them?

This fan is carrying a dead animal carcus on his shoulder.  I wonder where he found a conch shell in Minneapolis?

This NY Giants Football fan kicked a mini football through a goalpost and was given a shot of something for his effort.  This shows the hospitality of a Vking fan --- they will even feed a Giant.
