Continued: Reusse: In the Viking World Order, these pro-stadium knights will never say 'Nay'

Bill Keech said work obligations prevented him from joining other Purple zealots at the State Capitol. His knighthood was earned, Bill said, by sending “thousands of e-mails” through Minnesota Momentum, the “grass roots” pro-stadium organization created and backed by the Vikings.

“The Vikings recognized me after the stadium was voted in,” Keech said. “They invited some of us to Winter Park. We watched practice.”

Working on behalf of a new Vikings stadium was a requirement for VWO knighthood, before passage of the bill in the Legislature on May 10, 2012.

On Friday, only a hint of the Metrodome’s roof was visible from the parking lot, since there’s an apartment building in the way. When the new dome, the Taj Ma Zygi, opens in 2016, it will rise 100 feet higher in the sky and overwhelm its surroundings.

Keech was asked if he had any second thoughts over his ardent work in behalf of a stadium for Zygi Wilf, what with last week’s decision against the Wilfs in a long-running lawsuit in New Jersey.

The judge in her ruling said Zygi operated with “bad faith and evil motive” — and those were only a couple of the shortcomings Her Honor found in the Wilfs’ treatment of partners in Rachel Gardens, a 764-unit apartment complex in Montville, N.J.

“I read about it,” Keech said. “I don’t know. It doesn’t bother me so much.”

Good answer, Sir Keech.

Anything else, Syd Davy, the VWO’s self-appointed five-star general, might order a court martial.


Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500.
