The Vikings are still hoping to come together with law makers for a new stadium, and that may have just happened at a parking lot near the Metrodome.

Sure, it’ s not ideal (it’s not Arden Hills), but it sure beats tearing down the dome and playing at TCF Bank stadium for a few years.  This proposal would allow them to play almost all of their games in the Dome until the new stadium is built.  The Vikings won’t lose money, the city won’t lose the Vikings, it seems like a win win.

In the Washington Times (I’m not sure why their paper, but whatever) Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission Chairman Ted Mondale said the plan could have a new stadium as much as three-fourths done before the Dome would have to be demolished.

This would be great news for Vikings fans and the Vikings organization, but we still have lots of time for the politicians to screw something up (we are after all the state that elected Jesse Ventura).
