Buccaneers @ Vikings 9/18/2011   Buccaneers 24   Vikings 20 

Another lead with a 17 point half time lead that my Vikings blow in 2 consecutive weeks!

Enjoyed the first half and then things fell apart for Head Coach Frazier and Co.

Then we headed to Sandstone MN for some Rock Climbing Sandstone Quarry / Robinson Park. We were the only Climbers there for the entire week!

Then back to St Paul to meet the GREAT Hall of Famer John Randle at Billy's on Grand.
