    Proposed L.A. Football Stadium

    Notice anything about the color of the seats? Coincidence? How does the Los Angeles Vikings sound to you?

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year oldís life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    I liked one of the quotes in the ensuing thread:

    "That's not Viking purple - that's Laker blue..."


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    I would be very PO'd and would have to find a new team, looks like I would jump on the Jacksonville wagon since they have an old Viking as coach, I loved Jack Del Rio.

    From the thread that follows the article:

    RandomThoughtsGuy says:

    Ö Kevin, itís NOT purple. Itís Laker Blue Ö
    (meant as a sarcastic jab towards Los Angeles as this would be the second team that they have "stolen" from Minneapolis. And coincidentally, when the Lakers were still in Minneapolis, they wore blue)

    L.A. Vikings makes about as much sense as L.A. Lakers or Utah Jazz.

    Well, they might as well move there and change their name. Just start fresh since the Vikings have ever done anything worthwhile.

    Making sense doesn't play into the equation. Dollars do.

    It's not like the Vikings don't have a fan base. They seem to draw a pretty nice crowd for the majority of their games. I think Minnesota should keep a football team. Otherwise, there would be no NFL team in Idaho, Montana, North/South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming, Nevada, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota. That is just too big of an area without a team. It's already too big as it is.

    Big area, but not a lot of dollars.

    It's nice that they want to name a stadium that nice after our new freshman L.A. Pomlee. They must expect big things from him.
