Too true. I remember the WI game in '09. The rain and cold ruined the Solid Gold Saturday plan (understandable). But I saw the most stupifying thing ever. There was a guy in a red jacket. I just assumed Badger fan. Until I noticed his Gophers hat and how he said Go Gophers! to someone else. That means the guy planned ahead for the weather and though "if things go bad I'll be ok b/c I can wear my red jacket"...to a game where the Gophers are playing the Badgers. He couldn't be bothered to beg, borrow, or steal (much less buy) any other coat to handle the weather. Just shook my head and though "only in Minnesota".The real problem we will have for years will be jackets. As long as the weather is nice, we'll have a maroon and gold stadium. But it will be years -- if ever -- before a majority buys maroon or gold warm jackets (not just sweatshirts). People just don't do that much in Minnesota. You don't even see a lot of Vikings winter jackets.
