    I’m going to guess that the draft will keep me free of the “sad old man with face paint pictures” today. But just for fun: Syd Davies is not a tax paying citizen of Minnesota. Or America.

    Yeah racksie,

    The new stadium in Minneapolis is going to be crowded with non-tax paying Canadians watching a Vikings game.

    Why don’t you overcome being a hater and become a football fan or leave it to someone else to enjoy while you pay the tax.

    Either way, win-win for me and Syd.
