Begnals-Jets Game At Giants Stadium
CLOSING IN ON A DEAL: Dolphins CEO Mike Dee yesterday said that he "expects a new name" for Land Shark Stadium to be "announced before the Jan. 31 Pro Bowl." Dee said the stadium "will be Land Shark Stadium through" Tuesday's Georgia Tech-Iowa FedEx Orange Bowl, and there "will be an announcement between the Orange Bowl and the Pro Bowl." In West Palm Beach, Brian Biggane notes the NFL "currently is referring to the stadium by its former name, Dolphin Stadium, when publicizing the Pro Bowl and the Feb. 7 Super Bowl" (PALM BEACH POST, 1/4).
TIME RUNNING OUT: In St. Paul, Charley Walters wrote there is "virtually no chance of the faltering Vikings getting public approval for a new stadium in the coming" Minnesota state legislative session. If Vikings ownership "can't persuade QB Brett Favre to return next year, there would seem to be little chance in 2011, too, despite the expiration of their Metrodome lease after that season" (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, 12/31).
