How to get Vikings single-game tickets right now -- for a price

Dates haven't been set yet, but if you want to make sure that you can get to a Vikings game in the new US Bank Stadium (without spending for season tickets), the first wave of tickets is available on eBay. Don't look for them on StubHub or Ticket King yet because, for one thing, only the Vikings opponents -- and not the dates of the games -- are known.

But ...

If you want to sit 12 rows up in the stadium's top level for the Vikings-Green Bay next season, you can find a pair on eBay right now between the 10 and 20 yard lines for $299 each.

Here's what we know. Single-game ticket prices haven't been set yet for seats outside of the "Stadium Builder's License" sections, but the cheapest seats that required those licenses are currently set at $50 per game on top of the $500 license. Those Vikings-Packers tickets are located one section outside of the top level's licensed seats. So you can assume a bit of a mark-up.

Here's a seat map of the new stadium:

The cheapest tickets on eBay right now are for the Vikings-Houston game next season. $150 gets you a seat on the 20 yard line, with the seller promising a refund if the game is played on Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's weekend and you can't attend.

Want more of a selection? Here's what is currently available on eBay.

And here's a link to ticket prices if you buy through the Vikings.

Konopka's firing tweet draws Yeo's response: 'I really don't care what he thinks'

Former Minnesota Wild forward Zenon Konopka went on Twitter Tuesday night  after the slumping team lost to Dallas and wrote that coach Mike Yeo needs to be replaced.

In the first of two tweets on his verified account, the veteran center said:

Then, a few minutes later, Konopka added:

Konopka played in 73 games for the Wild over parts of two seasons before being placed on waivers and claimed by Buffalo in January 2014, the last of the five teams for which he played in his six-year NHL career. He had 30 points and 1,082 penalty minutes.

The rabbit in the photo, by the way, is Konopka's pet Hoppy.

Yeo responded this morning during the Wild practice, dismissal. He told Star Tribune hockey writer Michael Russo:

Known more for physical play than hockey skills, Konopka had one goal, one assist and 172 minutes in penalties for the Wild. He ended his career with a 20-game suspension for violating the league's drug program after taking an over-the-counter supplement.

In his postgame blog, Russo wrote: "All I can tell you is that Konopka and Yeo had a lot of issues behind the scenes and that's why he ended up on waivers two Januarys ago right before it erupted in the second half. So, there's a lot of history there."

Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said over the weekend that Yeo's job is safe.

As you'd expect, Konopka's tweet received lots of overnight reaction, pro and con.
