Mid-day talker: So what is the Vikings stadium going to look like?

It's been more than a year since Clarence Swamptown boldly laid out his vision for a Vikings stadium in rural Goodhue County (rendering below).

The big question as the Vikings inch toward the unveiling tonight -- at the Guthrie -- of the actual stadium design in downtown Minneapolis is this: How much of the Swamptown architecture and surrounding accompaniments will be included?

Forget about glass end vs. fixed roof vs. retractable roof ... will it have paintball? How much tailgating will there be? How accessible will it be from the Canon River Bike Trail?

These are the questions that demand answers.

OK, and seriously: What are your best guesses as to what this new stadium will look like?
