When the Minnesota Vikings unveiled their new stadium plans last week, some Green Bay Packers fans had a bit of fun with the design.

Lester Bagley, the Vikings' vice president of public affairs and stadium development, chuckled at the comparisons to a certain "Star Wars" vehicle.

Bagley said in a recent interview with KARE-TV that he couldn't wait to play their rivals in the new stadium in 2016.

"The way the league is structured ... our very first regular-season game likely will be against the Green Bay Packers," Bagley said. "So it will be good to see Adrian Peterson break loose and score the first touchdown in the new stadium and run over Clay Matthews on his way to the end zone. We'll see. Hopefully we'll have the last word when we get to opening day in (September) 2016."

Bagley is assuming that the opening-game opponent will be the Packers. The Vikings expect a high-profile foe, and, as Bagley said, "there is no higher-profile opponent than the Packers for the Vikings."

Bagley also pointed out that when renovations were done at Lambeau Field in 2003, the Vikings beat the Packers 30-25 to spoil the reopening.

I very much dislike the Vikings. It is just hard to get amped up over them talking. It is like Keiana talking tough to me. I put my hand on her forehead, a little shove and poof, she's down. That's pretty much all the resistance the Vikings are to the Packers.

It is sad indeed when the only thing going for the vickie franchise is for them to say, "Oh yeah? Just you wait 3 more years. THEN we will show you."

I wonder who their quarterback will be in 2016, and if Peterson's ligaments will hold up from all the growth hormone he needed to take for his "miraculous" recovery? I fully expect Matt Cassell to be quarterbacking the Vikings by mid-season this year. And without a strong running game, neither of these guys is anything to write home about.

As for the Packer/Viking thing; it's fun and all, but at the end of the day - the Vikings really are more or less like an unaccomplished, weakling little brother than a rival. All you really have to do is compare trophy cases. They are the equivalent of the Cincinnati Bengals to the Steelers, the Bears would equal the Ravens, and Lions would be the Browns.

"Lester Bagley, the Vikings' vice president of public affairs and stadium development, chuckled at the comparisons to a certain "Star Wars" vehicle"

Haha I was the first to point this out on cbssports.com. I am glad they are saving money by going with an indoor plan with natural light, but the exterior DOES look as hideous as their chances in the NFC North this year. And while I don't worry too much about a team exec talking a little trash, before he goes too far he should remember that his boy AP got to run on the Packers D only after half the team was out with injury. No doubt he had the best year of any RB and he is great, great player, but when he is your only real threat, he can be countered and you can be made to look really stupid talking him up like that.

Kudos to the bar in GB that had the 27-foot sign that read "Hey AP this is what 9 yards looks like"
