As I've been telling my Viking fan co-workers today.. This is our equivalent to a Super Bowl win. I've never felt this 'high' after any sort of Viking win, to be honest. I think I was flying high because I was 99% certain we were going to loss the team.

That said, I'm still trying to reel myself in and wait until at least the ground breaking ceremony before getting too excited.

Says the guy who's team barely has a winning record against the 'semi-professional' team. BTW, said 'semi-professional' team has a record of 165-133-5 against the rest of the NFC North. That's a winning percentage of 0.552

65,000 seats, expandable to 72,000. Naming rights haven't been sold yet (and won't for a while). The site is the Metrodome site. The Vikings will play in TCF Bank Stadium for somewhere around 1.5 seasons. It will either be an indoor stadium (Ford Field/Lucas Oil Stadium) or retractable roof. If retractable roof, the Vikings will have to pay for any extra costs that would require.

Don't be surprised to hear Target being interested in the naming rights, although they may only have been interested in if the site was on the other end of town (next to Target Field/Target Center). If I had to guess.. General Mills, Target, Best Buy, Mall of America are the names that pop up in my head. We'll see, though.

TCF Bank Stadium occupiers won't be seeing any drop off in play of what they are accustomed to. Another dome? God still doesn't want to see the Vikings play. Packers and Bears got it right, what's wrong with the Lions and Vikings? Figure this, how many NFL Championships between the Bears and Packers vs Lions and Vikings ... hmmm

Vikings, University of Minnesota deal says TCF Bank Stadium could be used for up to four years. Four years in an open stadium would destroy the Vikings. They are not men, they are boys whom cannot handle the ... cooooold. Man up!

you can't destroy that which is already destroyed. It will retard their rebuilding back to mediocrity.

Congrats, Jeremy and Nick. Told you it would happen.

Of course this means that Minnesota roads, like the Bears, will still suck.

But then again, that probably would have been true anyway.

Yeah. Considering no general funds are to be used, I don't see how it would effect roads other then the legislation time spent on the Vikings bill.

Indoor stadium =/= a dome. Not that I should expect your retarded rear to know the difference. =P
