Is Wilf wearing some kind of mink coat or something? That would be appropriate anyway.

Let's hope MR Wilf figures out with a new stadium comes the responsibility of a winning Vikings team to enter it. That means a good house cleaning!! Starting with firing Frazier and he's staff, Getting a quality head coach and I do stress Top notch!! Sending Ponder on his merry way and drafting a franchise QB!!That means a franchise QB not just anyone that may fall to you. They should take Manzel if he's there, someone with a brain and strong throwing arm not a noodle arm like Ponders. Getting rid of players that don't produce on this team and what you don't draft get thru free agency. You want to fill this Stadium Mr Wilf then build a winner!!!

"It captured a gleeful team owner Zygi Wilf as he hoisted a golden shovel next to a more subdued Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton." --------"Gleeful?" "Subdued?" More like: "Devious and Dumber."

Their respective manicurists are furious with them for dabbling in manual labor. This could wreak havoc with their cuticles. The horror!
