Royalty is heading back to Minnesota and Winnipeg to see hockey and football!
It's going to be December in a few weeks, Royalty will be spending the first weekend of the month in the Upper Midwest.
The game plan is as follows:
The King and I are going to the Twin Cities and North of the Border.The main purpose is to see MTS Centre, home of the new Winnipeg Jets who in the off season relocated there from Atlanta. The King and I were there once before in March 1996 when we saw the original Winnipeg Jets play at the old Winnipeg Arena. This time we're going there so we can say we've been to every NHL arena again.
Friday, December 2nd we have a flight booked on American Airlines that departs NY LaGuardia Airport at 11:50AM Eastern Time and it's scheduled to land in Minneapolis, Minnesota at 1:45PM Central Time.
Upon arrival, I'll be renting a car and we're going to drive to St. Paul to see the Minnesota Wild play the New Jersey Devils in a hockey game that starts at 7PM local time.
After the game, we'll be driving halfway to Fargo, North Dakota to get some sleep before we continue North to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada Saturday morning.
Saturday, December 3rd Devils at Jets 6PM Local Time
After the game we're driving back to Fargo to spend the night.
Sunday, December 5th, we'll be at Mall of America Field formerly the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis to see the Minnesota Vikings take on the Denver Broncos. Kickoff is now scheduled for 12 Noon local time thanks to the flex scheduling. Less sleep for the weary.
After the game, I'll be spending the night in the Twin Cities before we head back East to go home.
We'll be flying back home on Monday, December 5th. Our flight on American Airlines departs Minneapolis at 8:50AM Central Time and lands at LaGuardia at 12:30PM Eastern Time.
Please feel free to check back for all the details of how this adventure played out. As long as mother cooperates, this will be an instant classic roadie royalty style.
If you want to join us, please let me know so I can arrange to make it happen.
Thank you for reading and following along.
