Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Mid-day talker: The quote that will haunt the Vikings for a while

Posted by: Michael Rand under Vikings Updated: October 10, 2013 - 1:48 PM

From today's story about the Vikings trimming things from their stadium wish list:

“We only have $975 million in the budget, and there’s only so many things you can get under that number,” said Vikings Vice President Lester Bagley.

Commenters picked up on it. Deadspin picked up on it.

How can you not pick up on it?
