The L.A. Vikings?


Could the Minnesota Vikings pack up and head to Los Angeles? Well according to the answer is yes.

Vikings owner Zygmunt Wilf's biggest asset is the termination of his lease at the Metrodome, which expires after the 2011 season. If Wilf does not have an agreement for a new stadium in Minnesota he will probably move the franchise to Los Angeles, where two separate groups want to build new stadiums.

Wilf has done everything possible to squeeze a few more bucks out of the Metrodome from naming rights to a high end sports bar which costs $2,500 in addition to the cost of a ticket.

The Viking horns in L.A. just doesn't match. Come on give Zyggy his multi billion dollar play pin for the Viks and make sure it's open air.

Let's go back to win the Vikings played in the elements. Take a trip down memory lane as The NFL Today opens their broadcast from the old Metropolitan Stadium and the frigid Viking fans from 1975. (Thanks CBS Sports/

If by some chance the Vikings move to L.A. then this is a memory from that town Vikings fans might remember, defeating the then Los Angeles Rams in a mud bowl at the L.A. Coliseum in 1977. Vin Scully and Alex Hawkins are your CBS announcers. Who says the weather can't effect a game in L.A.
