Mall of America Field Effectively Inspires Shopping at the Metrodome


The Minnesota Vikings announced a naming deal for the Metrodome today as the Bloomington based Mall of America has bought the rights to call the field within the Metrodome – wait for it – Mall of America Field. How delightful. While not necessarily mind blowing – the Vikings and the Mall of America do have several partnerships – it does grate me to no end that stadiums continue to provide naming rights to their structure, their field, the seats, the entrances and anything else that you could whore out for an extra buck. Only low life’s do that type of stuff.

But it got us thinking, if the vaunted Field Turf at the Metrodome could be sold off, what else Vikings related in the Metrodome or metro area could be sold for an extra buck? Following is our list of potential naming right opportunities that the Vikings should continue to explore. Make sure to add your own ideas in the comments:
