I'm sure you can honor the flood victims in another way. Don't dishoner Mr. Doubek and his family.

The U of M's Memorial Stadium was to be a permanent memorial to those who had give their lives in World War I.
The Metrodome was a memorail to Hubert H. Humphrey.
If TCF Banks had any class, it would have donated the money to the U for the new stadium and insisted it be named Memorial Stadium in honor of its predecesor.
What happens when TCF is bought out in a year or so and has a new name?
The only thing that matters anymore is money, but then hasn't that been true for a long time?
What happens if FDS Feminine Spray or Viagra donate millions for the naming rights for a new Vikings stadium?
Or, how about "Vikings Stadium--Brought to you by the Kingdom of Saudia Arabia"?

"All Political, Religious, Sexual and Racial Profiles Stadium"? Kinda of catchy, ain't it?
