Default Terrible News!

Now that the Metrodome has been vacated by the Vikings and their new football stadium will be built in its place, I'm sure many of you, like me, were anxiously waiting to hear when the Metrodome would meet its maker in an awesome implosion, but unfortunately, as I learned today, the state of Minnesota is going to be slowly dismantling the Metrodome in pieces.

Too bad. I'll settle for an awesome implosion of Nick Punto, Lew Ford and Denny Hocking.

There's still time for an impromptu explosive dismantling.

Looks like they dug a grave.

However, there may be a great youtube opportunity on Jan. 18, when the lights will be turned off and the roof deflated.

I thought they were going to fill it with helium and let the teflon roof float it away?

OK I admit I'm a Vikings fan (oh no!) and really havent kept up on this, but arent the Vikes going to play where the Gophers play for at least one season while new staduim is built? Where will the new one be? Is it outdoor? I hope so....I remember the Black & Blue division many yrs ago, with Bears, Pack, Lions and Vikings all outside. Great games

But as usual, greed may prevail, I'm sure the number crunchers have determined that indoor football attracts more FA's, and that a warm fan buys more concessions and team items. Now if they only had a QB
