The road from Fargo to Frisco has been a long one for the team.
And their faithful fans are preparing to hit the road themselves to show their support at the big game.
Jeni and Mike Strand are among the herd headed to Texas Thursday after work for the playoffs. They're among the many fans who say they think this year's Bison fan contingent will be even bigger than last year's was.
To the crowd, the Strands are contributing several of their friends and their friends' children, courtesy of a rented a thirty-five foot camper they're driving to Frisco, Texas.
And among the necessities they're packing are Bugles.
No, not the musical instruments -- but other items they consider equally effective in cheering their team on.
"They were losing -- this was two years ago -- and someone said, open the bugles, that'll help," says Jeni Strand, displaying a bag of the snack items, ready to be stashed in a plastic bin and loaded onto the camper Thursday morning. "And it did. You have to always have bugles. For some reason it's worked for two years."
The Strands decided to rent the camper because they said flights into Frisco just weren't reasonably priced.
They estimate they and their ten or so friends will be spending eight to nine hundred dollars in gas to get there, alone.
