Minnesota Vikings Stadium: Deal Reportedly Very Close To Reality

The moment of truth might be getting closer concerning a deal for a new Minnesota Vikings stadium adjacent to the Metrodome, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Vikings' owner Zygi Wilf met with Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton yesterday, and after the meeting was over, both sides sounded optimistic that things would get worked out.

"There are still matters to be negotiated, particularly with the city of Minneapolis," Dayton said after meeting with Wilf at the Capitol. "The number of issues that remain are limited and can be overcome if all parties are willing."

By "all parties," Dayton is likely (more or less) referring to the Minneapolis City Council, who has to come to a decision to bypass a potential referendum for the stadium, much like they did for Target Field, the new home of the Minnesota Twins. There was much weeping and gnashing of teeth about that as well. . .you know, until after it got built and everybody realized that Target Field is really pretty awesome. Hopefully the same thing will happen with the new home of the Minnesota Vikings and we can stop all this speculating about it.
