Do you remember the Vikings so-called "Love Boat" scandal? Deadspin doesn't want you to ever forget it.

The freewheeling website purchased and dedicated a Legacy Brick at U.S. Bank Stadium to the Loveboat scandal. It reads: "To my beloved, the Minnetonka Queen." Minnetonka Queen was the name of the boat the Vikings were on that infamous day.

Deadspin challenged its readers to find the brick and one Viking fan did just that on Sunday.

So now that it's found, should it stay or should it go?
