Favre Has Vikes By The (Foot)Balls

This is an age in which a majority of American’s consider the term “large corporation” to be synonymous with the term “evil.”  If you are on that side of the political spectrum, then perhaps the NFL’s ultimate Everyman, Brett Favre, should be regarded as a hero to the commoners for the manner in which he has […]

I’m Here For Ya

So, I don’t really know what it is about this week but there is freaking nothing going on.  All the big publications are trying to pretend that no news is somehow news when it comes to issues like Favre, the stadium, pro day visits, and the StarCaps trial so that they can fill up some […]

Lobbyists Hired To Help

Here is an interesting note from City Pages about the Vikings recently resurgent stadium efforts:   The Minnesota Vikings’ lobbying team is showing a seven-man blitz.
