Attention baffles camp suitors
"This is either really fascinating to a lot of people, or there's nothing else going on in the news," said Cole Carley, director of the Fargo Moorhead Convention and Visitors Bureau.
"I think there's some people out there mentally counting Mankato out of this, which is ridiculous. I mean, you've had them for 40 years."
Minnesota State University, which has hosted the camp for four decades, will presumably get the camp this summer. MSU officials expect to begin talks with the Vikings in the next couple of weeks. But the future of camp after that is a question mark.
All the attention comes in spite of the fact the only Nike Air Max 2015 Pink And Orange people who can make any decision Vikings officials say they haven't even begun to think about the future of training camp.
Meanwhile, Duluth Mayor Herb Bergson's secretary just sighs when she hears another reporter is calling, quickly sending him to a voice mail system.

Lester Bagley, the Vikings' vice president for public affairs, said the team probably wouldn't decide on a future training camp until this summer. He said the Vikings have made no decision to leave Mankato or to even consider leaving.
Unlike that effort, in which local tax money and big fund raising efforts were part of the Sioux Falls bid, Krabbenhoft has said his city won't be getting into a bidding war this time. A Sioux Falls camp would be held at Howard Wood Field, owned by the school district.
