Looking for the Vikings’ fabled training camp dormitory building Gage Hall? Don’t bother. It’s not there anymore. The dorm building was imploded over the weekend and from now on the Vikings will be staying at sharp new digs on the campus of Minnesota State-Mankato. RIP Gage Hall.
Judging by all the stories over the years, there won’t be too many players shedding a tear over the destruction of Gage Hall. Apparently that place was a dump. But it was the Vikings’ training camp home for a lot of years. So it has earned a special place in Vikings lore. And now it’s rubble.
This would be a good time to remind every one that we are only weeks away from training camp. And that means we are only weeks away from preseason. And now less than ten weeks away from actual honest-to-goodness Vikings football. And once the season finally gets over with, we can get back to what really matters. MOCK DRAFTS!
