'Skol, Vikings' heard 'round the Capitol as stadium deal sealed
ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Vikings and their fans have something to cheer about.
And they did cheer and sang "Skol, Vikings," the team's fight song, during a Thursday evening news conference celebrating legislative passage earlier in the day of a plan to build a new stadium for the Vikings and other events. It is to be open in 2016.
Fans must wait for two final steps to be completed: a governor's signature and the Minneapolis City Council's approval.
