Minneapolis wins the Super Bowl (sort of): Top tweets

SBMpls.jpg
It's official!
You could feel the tension through your computer monitor as the NFL owners convened in Atlanta today to decide which city gets Super Bowl 52.

The smart money coming into today was that New Orleans was the front runner. After all, the city was 10 for 10 in Super Bowl bids, and 2018 represents the 300th anniversary of N'awlins's founding. But in a refreshing change of pace, a Minnesota sports entity actually pulled off an upset, and in the second round of voting, Minneapolis was awarded the big game.

As you'd imagine, Twitter was blowing up before, during, and after each of the three cities in the mix made its pitch (Indianapolis was the third) and the owners voted. So in tried-and-true fashion, below are the 20 most entertaining tweets we saw.

20. This argument apparently didn't hold water with the NFL owners 19. Where would you rather take a trip to in February -- Minneapolis or New Orleans? 18. 17. 16. Naturally (For more, click to page two.)

At least the gasoline tax goes to repairing all the 63,000 bridges that are ready to fail at any time, across the USA, & the the jobs to fix them...Oops, I guess that's not happening. Got to have a few more bridges fail, maybe at rush hour, killing a few hundreds or thousands before Congress will actually act to fix them with all that gas tax money they use to build golf courses for themselves. Oops sorry, got sidetracked what was that, Half a million in taxpayer money for Corporate welfare to Billionaire Land developer Pro sports franchise owners first. OK. I'm done whining about the Wilfs for now. Love the Vikings!

I saw this comment about Marilyn Carlson Nelson in Minnpost and it got me thinking. She is on the Board of the  MN Orchestra and was willing to let that crash and burn but is behind the Super Bowl all the way. Ick.

As I recall, my taxes didn't go down all those years before Target Field and the decision to build the Vikings Stadium. Where was the money going back then?

Reading these comments, I think my father was right when he always said, "Some people would whine even if they got hung with a new rope."

Too bad they won't be playing in their own stadium for that game. The only way they will be at that game is as spectators

Hooray, another 100000 people to whine about the cold in January 2018. It should be fun sharing the road with throngs of newb ice drivers..... At least we can show our hometown pride by showcasing the great new stadium the taxpayers bought a billionaire! Unless you own a hotel, restaurant, a cab, or an NFL franchise - this is 'meh' news.
