Bringing my son to his first game Fri.Where's the best place to park nowdays? All my favorite spots near Wash. Ave are gone. This may sound stupid but I'm looking for something half ways affordable Thanks!

Light Rail from somewhere. I rode it with my 6 yr old last year from near the mall and it was great and cheap. He had a ball riding it too.

Just don't be in too much of a hurry to leave unless you enjoy being up-close-and-personal with people suffering from a bad case of flatulence after downing several beers and dome dogs. sick

Light-rail is a great option. You can always park somewhere near the Dome, but you pay more the closer you want to be and you wait longer to leave because of the traffic. Park in a distant lot (far away from Washington Avenue) and you'll be in better shape.

I usually try to find an after-game diversion if I drove instead of taking the light rail. I'd rather go to a restaurant afterwards or walk around the river instead of head straight to my car and be frustrated at stop-and-go traffic for an hour or so.

Don't forget that there are lots of buses that go right near the metrodome. These are also great options.

If the weather is nice I will park on the street for free by St. Anthony Main. Then take the peaceful walk across the Stone Arch Bridge, looking for fish on the way over of course. Afterwards, traffic isn't too bad getting back on either 35W or 94N.

    • I have nothing good to say about his presidency
    • So they called Reilly back up, but part of me is kind of hoping that Prosser plays. Earlier this year he was very solid. You never get elite level from him, but I think he was dependable out there and I have been a big critic of his for a long time. The ceiling is obviously higher for Reilly and I want him to be a regular at some point, but if he isn't going to get 10 mins a night he is better off in Iowa and play Prosser. What impresses me are these numbers: 141 goals for (Tied 4th), 96 goals against (tied #2), +45 differential (#2). When was the last time a Wild team was in the top 5 in goals scored? We have a very balanced team and it is fun to watch, which this balance is also why slumps by Parise and Pominville don't kill this team or at least haven't until this point. I will say it again, I was a huge proponent of signing Staal. NO, I didn't think he was going to be leading our team in scoring, but what I was excited about was that it would mean that Coyle/Granlund could play wing where they should be. Those two are playing great overall and both have been playing wing pretty much entire season thus far. We can also thank Gravovac for his role too because without him, one of the two would be playing center most likely.
    • I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted, but I was able to take my new fish house out on the ice last weekend.  Fishing was slow for most of the weekend, but we had a good time otherwise.   I have some of the lights and tv mounted up temporarily till I start putting up the carsiding.  I'm just a little nervous about starting on the carsiding until I know exactly how to do my lift bunks.  I'd hate to put all that up and realize I don't have my furring in the right spot.   Furnace ducts are also ran temporarily, they'll be covered by cabinets when it's all said and done.  Most of the day saturday we didn't need the furnace anyways.  The sun kept it 10 degrees higher than what we set the furnace at!   Right now she's nothing pretty, but she got the job done without any problems on her initial trip.
    • Cooter ol' pal,  I think maybe you tend to skip over your inherent decency when you refer to President Obama as " a POS" My guess is you actually have a little more respect than that for a man to did the heavy lifting for the US for eight years and,  on more than one occasion,   has proven he is a decent man who really cares about the issues we face. You can disagree of course with some things-or all things for that matter-the man has done but he DOES deserve your respect. He is definitely not,  as you put it "a POS" and I'd guess you really have more class than that.
