So after several days of fretting over a roofless stadium proposal and allegations of stalling and talks of secret meetings and Mark Dayton having a cow…after all of that, the stadium saga has done another 180 and we’re back to the original plan as agreed upon by the team, city and state. And now there’s going to be a vote in the House on that. On Monday.
That’s right, an actual vote. Up or down. Yea or nay. Stadium or no stadium. The politicians will finally just vote on the dang thing. Stadium supporters aren’t sure they have enough votes to pass it but at this point I’m not sure anyone cares. Just vote one way or the other. That’s what everyone keeps saying.
There’s a very real possibility the bill could get voted down of course. And if it does? I don’t know what happens. I guess it’s back to the drawing board. The Vikings won’t be very happy if that happens. They’ve already said they have no desire to put this off another year. I guess that means, if the stadium doesn’t pass this session, the moving vans will be backing up to the Metrodome. Well that might be a tad melodramatic.
Or is it?
