From Minnesota To Los Angeles?

The title of this blog entry surely grabbed your attention because of the possibility that the long-standing stadium impasse in Minnesota will result in the Vikings making like the Lakers and moving from Minnesota to Los Angeles.

And now that we have your attention, we’ll let you know the real story behind this headline. (Hint: it doesn’t have anything to do with the stadium issue)

For now, the only member of the Vikings contemplating a move from Minnesota to Los Angeles is safety Jarrad Page. The LA Times’ Dylan Hernandez reports that Page was one of a record 125 players who attended the Los Angeles Dodgers open tryout on March 1.

Hernandez also noted that Page, who played college football at UCLA, also played baseball at the school and was actually drafted three times in baseball, most recently by the Angels in the 7th round in 2006.

Page is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent on March 13.
