Well, Viking and I will both be at the VWL the first week of December. Anyone else going to be at WDW during that time? Let me know and maybe a few of us can get together. I know I'll be looking for a good spot to catch my Jets on MNF..........and I'd welcome anyone who wants to cheer the Jets on with me as they get back to .500 against the Titans (you see, the Jets are going to run the table, finish 10-6, and make the playoffs :crazy: ).

If not MNF perhaps something else. If anyone will be there and is intersted let me know and we'll see what we can work out.

..are you planning on camping out in front of the ESPN Club to be sure you get a decent place to sit and watch the game. Couple years ago I tried to watch the Vikes and Packers on MNF but I only arrived two hours early and the place was already at capacity.

I'm sure well find some place to hook up. And you're right, at Christmas time, there is no better place to be then WL-VWL.

Yes, I've heard that ESPN can be a mad house for MNF...................and no, I have no desire to invest significant time before the game securing a seat. Last year the Territory Lounge right at the WL worked just fine for me. I heard that they do a big screen thing at POR? When/if the search function works I can locate one of my threads from last year where people provided suggestions. I'm into easy.

Would love to see you and your family again, DK, as well as meet Mr. Viking, but unfortunately am unable to make it this time.

Hope your Jets pull it off, but since the Raiders are going run the table and go 9-7, the Jets will have to take one loss...:teeth:

I'll pencil that in as we'll be there also. Of course Thanksgiving is earlier next year so we'll only be there thru the 4th. Hopefully there will be another Monday night Jets game to be watched on Nov 29.

Another time then. Next up for us after this trip is the end of May.

Ahhh.....classic denial. Didn't we just beat you? We can both win out without dealing one another a loss. Unfortunately for you 9-7 isn't going to make the playoffs this year.

Sorry KNW......................your Vikes are way too streaky and they are going in the wrong direction. I do agree that the Raiders are just what you need right now..............but it isn't going to be an easy win. Me thinks you are destined for 9-7 (or worse) following an end of year collapse (which you are already in the midst of). You do realize you've only beaten one team with a winning record (Denver at 5-4) don't you?

Shhh...............it doesn't matter that the Jets have yet to beat a team with a winning record, we are talking about the Vikings ;).

Well it sounds like a party since that will probably be the week the HBK family heads south.

And with all of this talk about football...it doesn't really matter since my Patriots are going to tuck the raiders to sleep and crush the JETS!

Come on....you have to admit that the Pats have been playing beyond their abilities all year. It's gonna end sometime. Since the Jets have been playing below their abilities it will end at the Jets, if not before.

...but how about this, just for old times sake?


The Autumn Wind is a pirate
blustering in from sea
With a rollicking song he sweeps along
swaggering boisterously

His face is weather beaten
He wears a hooded sash
With his silver hat about his head
And a bristly black moustache.

He growls as he storms the country
A villain big and bold
And the trees all shake and quiver and quake
As he robs them of their gold.

The Autumn wind is a Raider
Pillaging just for fun
He'll knock you 'round and upside down
And laugh when he's conquered and won

Let's take a look at who they beat. Four of their 6 wins were against last years play off teams, two of their loses were against play off teams. The only anomally was the Chargers game- couldn't they find someway of getting Flutie deported back to Canada ? The Vikes have a couple get well games coming against the Oakland Geriatrics and Detroit with Chicago and Arizona waiting in the wings. I see a very easy 10-6, possibly 12-4 because I'm not convinced St Louis or Seattle are for real.

Ahhh............a year in today's NFL is an eternity. I can't give too much credit to this stat.

Sorry, but your guys are going to lose (at least) two of these games. First round of drinks is on me if they haven't already lost one of them by the time we get together.

I watched (surrounded by a bunch of lousy stinkin Yankees fans - who are probably all lousy stinkin Jets fans, and Rangers and Knicks for that matter) 2 ALCS and 1 World Series game on the big screen next to the Polynesian bar. That wokred out well. The bartender said it was as loud as the place had ever been.

the big screen next to the Polynesian bar.
Is that big screen a regular fixture? If so, does anyone second the Poly for drinks, discussion, and (are you ready for some) football at 9:00 on Monday night December 1? I think we are doing the Cinderella dinner at the GF at 7:30 that night so I might be a few minutes late...........but I'm game.

***"Is that big screen a regular fixture? If so, does anyone second the Poly for drinks, discussion, and (are you ready for some) football at 9:00 on Monday night December 1?"***

Sounds like a plan. We have MVMCP on Tuesday and Candlelight package on Thursday so MNF at the Poly sounds great.

..and Monday nite at the Poly works perfectly. We have 5:50 PS at Cal Grill so we can watch the 7:00 Wishes fireworks from the observation deck. From there we'll just hop the monorail over to Poly.

Wish I could join you (to root against the Jets, of course!) but I am flying out to California at 7:00a on that Monday - so I have to leave WDW Sunday afternoon.

DisneyKidds

After that pitiful display of defense yesterday I just may root against the Jets. Their season is now over anyway :(.

Vike.................looks like the first round is on you. Maybe we should take bets on whether the Jets or Vikes end up with a better record. It is feasible that the Vikings could finish the season without another win.

As I said earlier, I may be a few minutes late since we are eating dinner at the GF at 7:30...................but I'll be there.

Greg..............not sure if we will cross paths, but we'll be at MK Fri (3:00 to close, after lunch at WCC), Epcot Sat eve, and at MVMCP on Sunday.

I don't know what I dreaded worse...watching Sports Center or reading this thread. Can I get Culpepper moved into Car 4 ? Oh well, Matt, take your best shot, I deserve it.

Mind if I crash the party? I've got MVMCP tix for Sunday, and I could try and hop over to the Poly for MNF the next day.

Oh, and can I have some karma from Prof Scoop and all of the L.A. people for Michigan and UCLA to win this weekend?

No particular reason. ;)

I thought posting the poem at 2-7 was a stretch (read: took a lot of nerve :tongue: ). You'd have been no better off posting it at 3-7 ;). Good showing against the Chiefs though.

11-26-2003, 05:21 PM
I guess... One of those years were I say if we'd played the Bears, Lions and Browns like we played the Chiefs (twice) and Jets, we'd still be in this thing.

So, we're 3-8, and are wondering if perhaps the last five years were a temporary blip brought on by one move, hiring Jon Gruden, which covered up the fact (?) that Al really has lost his touch.

We'll see...

You mean his business model for the Raiders isn't relavent in todays World ? ( insert winks,smileys,jokers,etc)
