    PP.O needs a new place to tailgate. Goodbye Rapid Park!

    When they announced the location where the new Twins stadium would be built, I knew they were talking about Rapid Park.

    For those of you not in the know, Rapid Park was the place many of us PP.Oers tailgated.

    Where will we tailgate now?

    The parking lots for tailgating for Vikings games is rapidly becoming an endangered species.

    That's sad. I wonder if the Vikings will make an official lot somewhere for tailgating again? It doesn't have to be real close, as long as they use shuttles or light rail.

    Gezzzz, Cajun and I were just talking about what a neat area that was to tailgate when I was visiting with him. Too bad.
    Take a look at this qute from the article:
    "It takes time, it's Minnesota," said St. Peter. "We have winter and that slows down the construction process, but needless to say, April 2010 can't get here soon enough."
    If the Viking's stadium takes that long to build and the lease at the Metrodome runs out in 2011 construction WILL HAVE TO START next year.

    Even if they would approve it in 2008 instead of 2011 the Vikes could play in the dome an extra year if they new that they had a stadium underway. But if it is 2010 and they still do not have a new stadium approved then I think Ziggy will move the team and it will be the LA Vikes or the Las Vegas Vikes.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Never tailgated in Minnesota before.. I was looking forward to it someday, but when that day will arrive I have no idea.. Hopefully by then, the new stadium will be built.
