Irritated Vikings fan puts US Bank Stadium for sale on Craigslist

All reasonable offers considered.

Minnesotans are without a doubt as hearty as football fans come, but everyone has a breaking point, and one fan snapped following the Vikings' lousy performance in a 21-7 loss to the Seahawks on Monday night. 

Matt B. couldn't take it anymore so he decided to put his beloved team's home on Craigslist, offering it to anyone who could reach into their pockets and pull out a billion dollars. 

The ad, which has since been removed from Craigslist, reads: 

"For sale: Lightly used $1,000,000,000 stadium. Occupant has been team that only has success in breaking the hearts of fans. Long history of collecting talent with no ideas on how to use them. 

Included: $84 million QB who can't win against teams with winning records And is 0-7 on MNF. A league record!

All reasonable offers considered. Will even consider ideas to convert to homeless shelter, as there is a greater chance of one of those folk becoming a success."

Matt B. tweeted a screen shot of the actual ad before it was removed. 

Let's all be honest: The likely truth is that Zygi Wilf uses "Matt B." as an alias and he really was trying to dump his purple palace on Craigslist.
