Minnesota Gets its Superbowl

This political cartoon/ editorial cartoon shows Minnesota winning its bid to host the Superbowl in 2018.  The man with the red shirt is Zigy Wilf, the owner (well, part owner) of the Minnesota Vikings.  It is funny because he is pictured in shorts which would never be worn in Minnesota in February when the average high temperature is the 20’s F.  This cartoon combines the news about global warming and the Superbowl bid.

Thank you for the suggestion to explain an editorial cartoon, on occasion.
