A Minnesota state legislator wants to build the Viking football stadium in Duluth. His financing is shaky at best, but he has land and he has chutzpah. He is envisioning a Green Bay Packer situation where this small city is a 2 hour drive from the biggest city in the state. Difference being, Green Bay is a rabid sports town, Duluth/Superior is not.
I’m all in favor of bringing back the Duluth Eskimos. But it should be a throwback jersey game played in the twin cities. In case you were wondering, the Duluth Eskimos have a 1-3-1 record against their hated rival, the Green Bay Packers. Don’t let this rivalry die.
