Viking men depart O’Hare without a hitch

Well here we are, sitting in the airport about to board the plane. Everyone drove in safely and on time, coming from around Chicago and the Quad Cities. Well everyone except Jake Norcia. He ended up at the wrong terminal, but eventually he found his way through the airport and met up with us.

We made it through security without issue thankfully and now we’re listening to music, eating at the food court, and riding the moving sidewalks trying to pass the time. Nervous and excited with butterflies in all of our stomachs, we all want to touch down in São Paulo as soon as possible and get this trip started!

As excited and amped up as we are, we will need to sleep on the plane because we will start this trip with games on three consecutive nights. While talking with former Viking Bryant Voiles this weekend, he told us that it would be tough to sleep with all the movies, shows and games. He said enjoy fun times with everyone on the plane and eventually we would fall asleep.

We’re about to leave from Gate C16! By Mark Roth’s next blog, we will have a full day in Brazil and a game under our belts.
