Stadium Arcadium

The proposed Vikings' stadium in Blaine is dead for the year, after negotiators for the team, the legislature, and Anoka County couldn't come together on whether there would be a roof, and if so, who would pay for it. This is probably a good thing- waiting another year, and putting last year's scandals in the past, and not having to compete with the Twins and Gophers is probably the best outcome for everyone.

However, better news is in the same story:

"To listen to [State Sen. Steve] Kelley, it sounded as if a Twins' stadium was nearly a done deal. "We are going to build a Twins ballpark in Minneapolis," he said."
Finally! Woo hoo!
