If you scroll through this slide show displaying statues of Leif Erickson (or Ericsson, there seem to be many spellings of this name), you notice that Duluth’s statue has something most of the other statues don’t have. Go ahead, I’ll wait…
…so, did you notice? If you read the headline you already know what it is: horns. What’s more, if you read this article on LakeVoice written by UMD journalist Madiha Mirza, you will learn that Duluthian Stefan Guttormsson, president-elect of the Icelandic American Association of Minnesota, believes that our statue should not have horns.
Of course, if that’s true, does it also mean the Minnesota Vikings’ logo is, um, wrong?
