Even if Minneapolis temperatures four years from now don't climb above zero - like they haven't for much of this month - the Vikings' new indoor stadium would be the ideal venue for the 2018 Super Bowl, political and business leaders said Monday.
The Minnesota Vikings and Wells Fargo have reached a preliminary agreement to resolve a conflict surrounding a development near the team's new stadium.
Construction isn't even underway on a new Minnesota Vikings football stadium, but a hard push is on by the team and its landlord to lure a Super Bowl, college football championship game and Final Four basketball tournament.
The 2018 Super Bowl could be headed back to a recent host city. Or to one that hasn't staged the game in more than two decades.
Those three cities were selected from a pool of six at the owners' meetings Tuesday. Should Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy get the game, it would be the first cold-weather stadium to host two Super Bowls.
A judge in New Jersey on Monday ordered Minnesota Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf and their cousin Leonard Wilf to pay $84.5 million to two former business partners who she previously ruled they had defrauded in a 1980s real estate deal.
Minnesota Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf should have to pay a large portion of the team's share of a new football stadium from their own pockets instead of using money made from fees charged to season ticket holders, Gov. Mark Dayton wrote Monday in a letter to the government authority supervising its construction.
The Minnesota Vikings say a civil lawsuit against some members of their ownership group will not affect the team's finances or plans for a new stadium.
Next season will be the Minnesota Vikings' last in the 31-year-old Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, and fans of the purple and gold can look forward to blue lips and red cheeks as they shiver through two seasons of old-school, outdoor football.

Whoa, that was a close one.
Now that the Minnesota Vikings will get their new stadium, the worrying can begin over a gambling expansion designed to pay the state's share of the $975 million project.
After a plan to build the Minnesota Vikings a new home cleared its final hurdle Thursday in the state Senate, the team executive who spent much of the past decade lobbying for the nearly $1 billion stadium could hardly contain himself.
The Minnesota Vikings' pursuit of a $975 million stadium went to the floor of the state Senate on Thursday and even opponents predicted it would clear its final hurdle.
The Minnesota Vikings' hopes of a new stadium are one affirmative vote away from becoming reality.
"The NFL now awards and rewards communities for stepping up on stadiums," Bagley said.
Bagley noted that NFL owners awarded the 2016 Super Bowl to the San Francisco 49ers' new Levi's Stadium in suburban Santa Clara, which is set to open for the 2014 season.
