Go ahead. Make my day.

So the Twins are suing to get out of their Metrodome lease. However, this isn't the first step in moving the team, according to Twins attorney Roger Magnuson. Right. Just like pulling a gun out of a holster isn't the first step in blowing you away. It's just, uh, "precautionary."

I like the Twins. I wish they played outside. However, I am not willing to put public money up for a stadium with no return. If the Twins want the state, Hennepin County, Minneapolis, a local sewer and water district, or any other level of government to pay for half or two-thirds of the stadium, then the government should get half or two-thirds of the revenue. We're not suckers, even if we like the Twins.

They are just mad because when the Hump was built, Mike Lynn (former Viqueens GM) managed to get a side deal where HE (personally) gets a sizable chunk of the suite revenues because neither the Vikes nor the Twins (at the time) had the brains to do the deal themselves.

That's why he is called "Remarkable" Mike Lynn.
