First I'm going to bribe, pressure and trick your corrupt, weak and stupid politicians into giving me your money.

Then I'm going to take the land I want next to a church so it can't have masses on Sunday.

Then I'm going to sell the team and leave taking all the profits.

My God, you Minnesotans are stupid, gullible fools.

As long as they can get fat, drunk, wear purple spandex, and humiliate themselves with the other 65,000 queens fans at a home game they are a happy lot.

Zigi Wilf is giving serious thought to rebuilding the old Nicollet Park site and get it ready for some smashmouth Vikings football.

He doesn't care where it's built.

He wants an infusion of Taxpayer money to increase the value of his property and then he'll sell it a big profit.

[b][i]The Red Wings have removed Jan Mursak from IR[/i][/b]

The terms of the CBA allow the Detroit Red Wings? to send Mursak down to play with the Griffins for no more than 14 days without forcing him to clear waivers. Mursak, 23, has been on Detroitís Injured Reserve List since late-September after fracturing his ankle during a pre-season game versus the Chicago Blackhawks at Joe Louis Arena.

Mursak has been skating with the[b][url=http://www.urbestje rseys.com/Detroit_Red_Wings_NH L_Jerseys--pc-532-1] Detroit Red Wings[/url][/b] when he could, but this will give him some game experience to get back up to speed. Counting tonight's game at the Lake Erie Monsters, Grand Rapids will play six games during the two-week stretch in which Mursak is eligible to remain with them: Two home games this Friday and Saturday, then two back-to-back road games at Abbotsford next week before a final home game against the Houston Aeros on his last day of eligibility.

Mursak's return from the conditioning stint will likely run very close to the return of Patrick Eaves from the broken jaw he suffered on November 26th agains[b]t [url=http://www.urbestjerseys. com/Nashville_Predators_NHL_Je rseys--pc-548-1]Nashville Predators.[/url][/b]

It will be very interesting to see how the roster shakes out when both of them return. If Mursak can pick up where he left off in camp, he very well could find himself in a rotation for a regular roster spot and push Cory Emmerton off the roster.

[b][i]Alexander Semin tallies twice[/i][/b]
Alexander Semin scored twice, Troy Brouwer tallied the tiebreaking goal midway through the second period, and Washington halted the [b][url=http://www.urbestjerse ys.com/Olympic_Jerseys--pc-618 -1]New York Rangers[/url][/b]' five-game winning streak with a 4-1 victory on Wednesday night.

"All through the lineup, guys were just playing tough," Brouwer said. "Not letting guys get free passes, even in front of our net, playing hard on the cycle, stuff like that. When you play tough, when you play hard, it makes it tough for the other team to create anything."

Marcus Johansson also scored for the Capitals, who snapped a two-game skid by beating the top team in the Eastern Conference. Alex Ovechkin had two assists.

Brandon Dubinsky scored for the Rangers, 7-3 in their last 10 games. Marian Gaborik, tied for the [b][url=http://www.urbestjerse ys.com/NHL_Jerseys--pc-483-1]N HL[/url][/b] lead with 22 goals, had his run of five straight games with a goal stopped.

Tomas Vokoun, making his first start in six games, made 31 saves for the victory.

The [b][url=http://www.urbestjerse ys.com/New_York_Rangers_NHL_Je rseys--pc-535-1]New York Rangers[/url][/b] dropped one point behind Boston in the Eastern Conference race.

[b][i]Bills Place Dave Rayner On IR[/i][/b]

The Buffalo Bills placed Dave Rayner on injured reserve Wednesday with a groin injury. The Bills signed the journeyman kicker to fill in for Rian Lindell after he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in a 27-11 loss to the [b][url=http://www.urbestjerse ys.com/New_York_Jets_Nfl_Jerse ys--pc-491-1]New York Jets[/url][/b] in Week 9.

This moves were made Wednesday as the Buffalo Bills (6-9) prepare to close their season at New England (12-3) on Sunday.

Rayner, who made 10-of-15 field goal in seven games for [b][url=http://www.urbestjerse ys.com/Buffalo_Bills_NFL_Jerse ys--pc-518-1]Buffalo Bills[/url][/b]-- his eighth team since breaking into the NFL in 2005, was replaced on the roster by Brandon Coutu.

Rayner, as you all are aware, was signed earlier this season to replace Rian Lindell, who is himself on IR with a shoulder injury. A sore pelvis has hampered Rayner's accuracy of late; he missed two short field goals in last week's win over [b][url=http://www.urbestjerse ys.com/Denver_Broncos_Nfl_Jers eys--pc-502-1]Denver Broncos[/url][/b] before converting on his last four kicks of the day.

Some stadium supporters are using their stupidity to derail this thread.

Unfortunately they have an endless supply.

The pro-stadium dolts are showing their true colors.

They are like the idiot college students who chant and disrupt speeches because they are afraid of the words being said.

It never dawns on their pathetic tiny brains that the reason they can't make a salient argument is because they are flat out wrong!

The anti-sports nincompoops can't get enough of themselves, as they think everyone should fall in line with their holier than thou mentality.
Do some research on the metrodump, and you will find out in its relatively short life span, it was WILDLY successful and Profitable.
But don't let the truth cloud your judgement.
