Not a done deal

If you found yourself watching the local newscasts last night, you likely heard about the deal reached for the Vikings stadium, with the state picking up their fair share. Funny, I don’t remember a special session in which the legislature passed a bill granting the Vikes their money, and I sure as hell don’t remember Gov. Pawlenty signing any such legislation.

As I stated yesterday, I don’ think the Vikes, with a 0-2 record, deserve a brand new, multi-millions dollar (subsidized heavily by you and me) stadium. Hell, right now they don’t even deserve to play in the ‘Dome. As far as I’m concerned, until they win, they can play all home games at the North High athletic field.

Zigy and Anoka County must be out of their mind asking for road infrastructure priority. What legislator going into 2006 will vote to delay a construction plan in their district in favor of moving up a road project for a Vikings stadium?

Only the one's who have the stadium in their district, that's who.

This happens in every major league city (and most minor league one too). The rich owners get the public to pay for their "office building" but they do create great jobs in concessions.
