Your morning cup of links….
1 — Vikings Stadium. “Dayton rejects stadium sales tax”. Alot of people were alarmed yesterday and are assuming the Vikings are gone to L.A. I hold the opposite opinion. I think this was a great thing for the Vikings to stay in Minnesota. I will break this down later today, but this sets up the Block E Casino and Farmers Market location.
2 — Gophers. Basketball. Opener. “Tubby’s Gophers prove to be a work in progress“. A rough game, with some bright spots, but the holes in this team are glaring. Struggle to shoot outside and at the free throw line, and need a third guy to step up and join Mbakwe and Sampson.
3 — Twins. Free Agency. “Twins should focus their efforts on pitching“. The Twins have many holes. They need to shore up their pitching, and this article is right, it is most important.
4 — Twins. Free Agency. An even better article by Phil Mackey of ESPN1500.com, “What to watch for”.
