It's Arden Hills

So the Vikings have chosen Arden Hills, a suburban spot sort of between Minneapolis and St. Paul, as their ideal stadium location. Sure, lots of hurdles remain- and I can't see this legislature passing a bill this year- but a location is better than no location- and Arden Hills is better than L.A.

Minneapolis would've been better, of course, but the WIlfs really seem to want to have a location where they can build real estate around it, plus have a parking lot for tailgating. Fair enough.

But a retractable roof? I want the Vikings playing outside in December, in a position where opposing teams are afraid to come there. And they want to host Super Bowls? If you thought the sportswriters bitched about Dallas, wait until they're in Minnesota, in February, having to get to a suburban stadium.
