Never mind that as noon approached it was 11 degrees in Minneapolis and snow flurries were falling.

A fan named Josh was undaunted, telling a reporter that “it feels like 95 and sunny.”

Josh and friends were set up a half block from the stadium, WCCO reported, complete with a bloody mary bar and plenty of food to stay warm.

Josh, from Bay Lake, Minnesota, capped his tailgating experience by wearing flip-flops, with his toenails painted in Vikings purple and gold.

“It’s my self-expression,” he told WCCO.

Skol, Vikings.
