No apologies: 5 things that need to be said about the death of Daunte Wright
Everyone agrees that Daunte Wright's death was tragic, but we can't ignore the facts and stick to a stubborn narrative about race.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune recently reported that Governor Tim Walz will be the one making the decision whether to allow limited in-person attendance of Vikings games this season. The question remains, will he spare them the humiliation?
Unlike the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings are not having a good season. Last Sunday saw the team walloped by the Atlanta Falcons, who had not won a game yet this season. The loss brought the Vikings record to 1-5 on the year, prompting many Vikings fans to switch from being excited about the current season, to dreaming of not screwing up the draft, for a change.
According to the Strib:
“In a statement to the Star Tribune, Walz spokesman Teddy Tschann said: “As a high school football coach of 20 years, Gov. Walz is eager to get back in the stands. But as COVID-19 cases are on the rise in Minnesota, we know that large gatherings continue to pose a threat to Minnesotans.”
Who knows if it will ever be safe enough to go to U.S. Bank Stadium ever again? Will anyone even want to go?
