I know, I know!!!
I know that there stadium articles coming out the wazoo today! What, do you think I'm blind? I've read them all drooling and bug-eyed and I found all of them very interesting. I've also got some things to say. The trouble is that I'm swamped here at work. I know what you are thinking, "How can a librarian be swamped at work? All they do is sit around and read all day." Blah! I wish.
So, anyway, I'm going to try to have something up around lunch time, probably close to 1:00. I've got some comments concerning all the stadium news and also some Viking sale rumors I've heard recently. So, if you are interested, stay tuned.

Wow! Finally somebody from Pawlenty's staff has told the public why we can't get a stadium built.
"If it's a four-burner range, this [issue] isn't on there," said Pawlenty's chief of staff, Dan McElroy. "If it's six burners, this might be on the back ones."
Who wants to go in with me and buy this jerk another grill?

If the governor was really so "serious" about getting a stadium built, he would consider the hotel and rental car taxes to be extended and moved towards the stadium. All he is doing is for show, so that he can say that he tried when the Twins and/or the Vikings leave. I'm starting to think that I never should have voted for Jesse all those years ago. Coleman would have had a Twins stadium built by now. He willed the NHL back and got the XCEL built.

Anything would have been better than Jesse followed by Pawlenty. Either Coleman or Roger Moe would have been better. Can Arne come out of retirement??

You are such a tease! Maybe this is Blogs Sweeps Week and you are leading off teaser to draw in new readers!?!?
I'm swamped also and won't be able to get to my blog until tonight or even Tuesday. I hope to start addressing the RB situation.
