You live for your team, bleed their colors, ride the roller coaster of winning and losing seasons, but sometimes, despite being loyal to the core, enough is enough. For one disgruntled Minnesota Vikings fan, that time is now.
The clever fan sent a message to the team via Craigslist ad, asking for $1,000,000,000 for the sale of their stadium, US Bank Field. For those of you that aren’t too good with numbers, that’s a cool billion dollars.
The full listing reads:
“For Sale: Lightly used $1,000,000,000 stadium. Occupant has been a team that only has success in breaking the hearts of the fans. Long history of collecting talent with no ideas on how to use them.
Included: $84 million QB who can’t win against teams with winning records, and is 0-7 on MNF. A league record!
All reasonable offers considered. Will even entertain ideas to convert to a homeless shelter, as there is a greater chance of one of those folk becoming a success.”
Of course, the ad has since been flagged and taken down, but you gotta love the spirit. Anyone who’s ever watched their team shit the bed (cough, Blackhawks, cough) totally gets it.
