Vikings looking to build a ‘magnet’

Are we the only ones who find it ironic that the Minnesota Vikings, who coaxed state taxpayers into building them a new stadium, are now looking to build a “destination development” in Eagan?
It was recently announced that the Vikings have a purchase agreement on 194 acres in Eagan, on which they intend to build a new Winter Park practice facility. It also was announced that the Vikings want to build a “magnet” around that facility, including a 10,000-seat stadium, a hotel, and a conference and event center.

I’m an elite runner, if the weather is ideal

I’m an elite runner.
And by elite, I don’t mean that I’m outstanding runner. It means I only run when conditions are perfect: no rain, low humidity, low dew point, a whisper of a breeze and temperatures preferrably in the mid to upper 50s.
The last week of August and the first week of September were less than ideal. In fact, they came no where close to meeting my standards. It was hot and humid.
