Being a Vikings fan is in my blood, in fact, it is a dominant genetic tendency in my family passed down from my mother and grandmother. I spend the whole summer counting down the days until training camp starts. Then I spend my evenings shouting at the sports guys on the news who persist in talking about baseball when all I want to hear about is football. I'm not patient.

Stadium Likely, Now Settle Down

18

It seems that every other day Minnesota Vikings fans have a new reason to wonder and doubt whether it is possible for the Vikings to get a new stadium built in Minnesota. For every hurdle the team clears there seems to be a new one just waiting for them. That sort of thing has a tendency to make me despondent, but, according to my favorite writer at the St. Paul Pioneer Press, we all need to settle down and take a deep breath. Tom Powers believes that the Vikings are very close to getting a new stadium and that getting huffy and obnoxious at each delay is not going to endear the team to Minnesota legislators. It's an interesting read because this is one of the first things I've read that suggests a Vikings stadium is highly likely. It makes for a nice change from the doom and gloom we usually hear.

This is one of three sites that the Vikings are looking into and seems to be a positive sign that the Vikings will get a stadium deal done so the team will stay in Minnesota.
