    Ziggy seems to have no patience about the stadium issue to go straight to Anoka instead of keeping the team near, I don't know, most of the State's population. There's no mass transit to Blaine, and why should the 700,000 taxpayers of THE CITIES have to drive way the hell out to Blaine? Personally, I think they should get the Twins a stadium and renovate the HHH.
    blaine will be a much better travel from the tc then to minneapolis. the parking the tailgating and the atmopsphere will be much better, and the drive is about the samr it takes 25 min if that to go from st paul to blaine.
    i love the idea...

    Re: Inching closer to a new stadium???

    I hope that they get it....as we all know the Vikes need a new stadium like crazy. Personally, I think it would pay for itself, because you know within 5 years the Super Bowl would be in the new dome, just like it's in Detroit this year 3 years after they opened their new stadium.

    Its cool that we are inching towards a new stadium, but for some reason I would like the stadium to be right here in Minneapolis =/ .

    Re: Inching closer to a new stadium???

    This issue has been on the MN gov't for over a decade now. I understand if they have bigger issues to deal with than a new stadium however at the same time the citizens of the twin cities have turned down ever opportunity to throw their suport to a new stadium and they've always said the same thing, don't use taxpayer money. Again I don't blame them for that, yet i can see why Ziggy is moving forward on his own despite the govt or the folks who live in the metro area. He doesn't want to wait and I would do the same thing if I were him. If i took over an investment that I wanted to make better and both the locals and the govt were always fighting about it I would find another suitor. He did, albeit a bit farther away but as fast as the city is growing, its a great move.

    Ok all you Twin Cities folks, I was talking with my brother who used to live in St. Paul. He said Blaine is kinda known as "hickville". Guys wear matching Polaris jackets and they all have guns racks in their trucks.

    Not that I care, but is that a true stereotype of Blaine?
