OMG Let's have Ziggy and Dayton dig that hole. I bet neither of them have even used a shovel in their whole entire life. What a couple of dingbats. Look at that picture of those two!

"“Awesome,” Keech said afterward, sporting a broad grin." Birth of a child - awesome. Grand Canyon - awesome. Grand Tetons - awesome. Watching a few mindless political hacks and Joisey fraudsters toss dirt - NOT awesome.

When I first saw the headline, I thought they meant getting areal Vikings team to play there.

Well Mr. Dayton, you may have put your political career on the line with this stadium project.

I don't say this lightly or often, but this IS a case of government out of control. IF this had been a statewide referendum, do you know how it would have turned out? And finally, the writing on the wall. For the average fan to attend this games the prices will now go from outrageous to unreachable. And if the games do not sell out, guess what happens next? Be careful what you wish for.

It's often said, "A picture is worth a thousand words". How ironic! The photo looks like Dayton has mud on his face and Zigi is shoveling mud at every Minnesotan. You can't make this stuff up!

It just seems these days that government at all levels is inept and digging deep holes for the citizens. Oh how our children and grandchildren will pay from our being so irresponsible.

Dayton regards his position as the point of a Minnesota dictatorship. He dismisses criticism of his terrible performance by flippantly claiming he would do it again if he needed to.

I thought it is supposed to be the people's stadium.

The only significant work that needs doing is privatizing it and disbanding the MSFA. Don't worry, a future legislature will do that for Minnesota, or perhaps a governor with some sense of responsibility.
