If hiring Favre didn't turn diehard fans away, this green move surely will: the Minnesota Vikings plan to buy wind power from Xcel Energy to power the Metrodome. Alas, there are no plans for windmills atop the dome (though wouldn't that be a great way to help motorists find the Dome?). The Vikings will join 200 other businesses and over 21,000 residential customers in Xcel's Windsource program, in which participants pay a monthly premium to support Xcel's development of wind power, like the muni-juice they'll start buying from Winona County next year.
What's next—Gardenburgers and salad at the concession stands? Oh, wait... already there.
Alas, you Vikings fans who find environmentalism unmanly will have to turn in your horns and purple jerseys. Maybe you can find a team more representative of your support for unsustainable extractive industries... but dang! The Oilers aren't around any more. Maybe the 49ers?
