Just saw this come across the Twitter from Tom Hauser, KSTP's chief political reporter, concerning the Minnesota Vikings stadium bill:
Governor Dayton will sign the Vikings stadium bill into law on Monday in the State Capitol Rotunda...High Noon.— Tom Hauser (@5hauser) May 13, 2012
So, what became semi-official on Thursday afternoon will become officially official on Monday at noon. I don't know if the signing will be streamed anywhere, but if it is, we'll effort to have it here for you and/or let you know where you can see it.
There's a portion of this that still hasn't completely sunk in yet. . .maybe that's because the cynical Minnesota sports fan part of me can't wrap himself around the fact that something positive has actually happened to this team after the past couple of years.
Of course, my inner WWE fan is expecting that Mark Dayton will get up to the podium, get the pen in his hand, start to sign the bill. . .and then rip off his jacket to reveal a Green Bay Packers shirt just before he tears the bill in half. But I'm sure that won't happen.
Relatively sure, anyway.
