Artwork by Clea FelienIt’s THE BIRD!  Thanks to all our readers for their wonderful suggestions for names for our new football stadium.  After careful consideration, we think Gayle Bonneville’s suggestion sums up what Zygi Wilf and the last Mayor and the last City Council gave to the Minneapolis taxpayers.  They flipped us The Bird.  The least we can do is return the favor.  And, if anyone asks what kind of bird it is, we should say it is an albatross, Wizard Marks’ suggestion: “The Albatross about my neck was hung” from Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.  So, from now on, when we talk about the stadium in Southside Pride we will call it The Bird.
