Vikings VP: "We will play in Minneapolis in front of our fans"

The Minnesota Vikings still don't know which stadium they will play next Monday night's game against the Bears.

But one Vikings vice president insisted he knows where the game will be.

"We will play in Minneapolis, in front of our fans," said Lester Bagley, the Vikings vice president of public affairs and stadium development.

Bagley said team officials last night talked with representatives from the NFL and University of Minnesota to prepare a backup plan, in case the Metrodome can't be fixed by Monday.

Today, they had a more serious conversation with the university's facilities operation, as well as security.

"We began the discussion and are moving forward, to determine what needs to be done," Bagley said.

Like everyone else, Bagley is awaiting a timetable from the Sports Facilities Commission, which owns and operates the Metrodome. They are expected to have a determination later today.

I would suggest you play the game in Detroit so the Mn fans do not have to watch the Vikings get beat
