Today marked the grand re-opening of the Target Center after an extensive, beautiful, state-of-the-art renovation project. Here are the remarks I delivered at the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Minneapolis, this is a great day!
Almost exactly two years ago, we all met here in the ticket lobby of the Target Center… Wait. I mean, not here, but in the old, dark, low-ceilinged, not-terribly-welcoming ticket lobby… I mean, holy smokes, what happened to the ticket lobby? This is amazing!
Anyhow, two years ago, we met in that ticket lobby to celebrate the 25th birthday of the Target Center—and at the same time, to say goodbye to the Target Center as we knew it.
Two years later, here we are, as the Target Center turns 27 tomorrow. Happy 27th, Target Center!
And like any 27-year-old, Target Center’s best days still lie ahead, starting today.
