The last leg of my European trip this summer was a little north, to Iceland. As our plane landed in Reykjavik, you could look out and see no signs of life for miles. Lava fields covered the landscape and the drive out of the airport was in the valley of an active volcano. Our first day there we went...

As the Minnesota Vikings almost finish the construction of their new stadium, let’s have a closer look at the stadium of “Titletown.” Being a Green Bay Packers fan myself, there might be some biased associated with this hallowed place.
