So I guess it's a kick-ass offense, after all.

The Vikings, it appears, are for real, winning their third game in a row by routing Detroit Sunday and bringing their record to 6-6. Tarvaris Jackson, almost unimaginably, looked good on the field, Aundre Allison returned a kick more than 100 yards for a touchdown, and Sidney Rice looks, again, like a find at wide receiver.

Also, in what can only be called a "good move," the Vikings and state legislative allieswill not pursue a new stadium until 2009. After the bridge collapse, approval was practically impossible anyway.

Here's what's crazy: When the Twins' new park opens in 2010, the Twin Cities will have seven venues for seven teams: The Dome for the Vikings, the new stadium for the Twins, Target Center for the Wolves, Xcel Energy Center for the Wild, TCF Bank Stadium for Gopher football, Williams Arena for Gopher basketball and Mariucci Arena for Gopher hockey. For a mid-level market, that's a lot of damn arenas.
