The headline is funny because it’s -5 degree right now in Minneapolis. “Heated up” is also what the Vikings describe their talks with MLS. Ives has that story covered here: http://www.soccerbyives.net/2013/12/minnesota-vikings-mls-aspirations-heat-up-with-stadium-plan.html
SI’s Brian Straus went deeper in an article later that day about expansion in Minnesota and have dropped this bomb on soccer fans: “According to multiple sources, however, MLS officials have spent more time with United than the Vikings over the past several weeks.”
These developments could lead to a very interesting 2014 for Minnesota soccer fans.
