Twins Stadium Deal Off

The Strib says so:

Hennepin County's top negotiators for a new Minnesota Twins stadium said they have begun considering the need to find another location for it because of a stalemate over land negotiations and other problems.

Though Thursday's announcement was viewed by some as a negotiating tactic, county officials also postponed actions related to the $522 million stadium in downtown Minneapolis.

That would make it unlikely that construction crews will begin work on the site in March as scheduled.

Not surprised. Rapid Park was a lousy site.

So, what happens to the stadium tax?

I'd like a refund of the stadium tax, but I'm sure it has been spent on patronage expenses for the ballpark commission.....
