Minneapolis also owns one of the finest collections of $50k each drinking fountains in the US. Thank you Mayor R(aise) T(axes) Ryback.

Sure, you bought artistic drinking faucets, but the real cost is whiners spending their lives here, blathering about it, like one act defines a man. Oddly enough, you'll NEVER GET IT !

Minneapolis is also the home to more publicly financed football stadiums than any other major city in America.

Let's see...help me out with the numbers folks, please.

Humpty Dome -$250 million.
U of M -$500 million.
New Taj Ma Wilks Stadium -$1 Billion

Almost $2 Billion in football stadiums alone.

Isn't it wonderful that you can find pot holes in Minneapolis that will swallow a truck whole, but you can't go more than 1/4 mile without finding another publicly funded sports facility.

Go Mayor Archie Go! Really...Go! Please go away.

It would be nice to have a stadium in Des Moines, we don't have a Minneapolis size city because of the Republican party.

And you can't tell the difference between the word city and the word state, unless you are claiming the city of California for your comparison.

It was a stupid statement, comparing/contrasting a city with publicly funded stadiums, like only the city pays.... LMAOROTFU~!

Ps- We have more in Seattle, but keep your knee-pads on, he'll lie again...

Liars will say anything when then think they can get away with it.

Memorial Staduium was built for soccer and is home only to high school football games. That does not count uness you want to include all the football fields in the Mpls area too.

I am pretty sure the Kingdome was torn down years ago. If so, you sure as hell can't count that one.

So the Low Integrity Poster is stuck with 2 football stadiums.

You would think someone living in Seattle would know the King Dome was demolished in 2000. The King Dome isn't even paid for yet, according to Wikipedia:

Seattle and King County will pay off the bonds used to build and repair the Kingdome in 2016, sixteen years after its demolition

This was your criterion

"publicly financed football stadiums"

As for counting the King dome, we sure paid for it...

Of course, you're wrong again, now pretend your words have a different reality, DUMB*SS ~!

Did I call IT OR WHAT !!???

Ps- We have more in Seattle, but keep your knee-pads on, he'll lie again...

So, which is it, King Dome or Kingdome, because you're clearly no expert and only a moron nut-so spells the same words differently.

I get it, you're hurrying to try to save your "puffer pal", from her own criterion...

STADIUMS PAID FOR BY THE PUBLIC !!!!
