If you had Vikings tickets for the Vikings Giants game originally scheduled for Sunday, December 12th at noon at the Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome Minneapolis, you are out of luck! Well, unless you can drive or fly to Ford Field in Detroit for the game at 6:20 tonight.
The Metrodome roof collapsed early Sunday morning forcing the Vikings to move the game to a new location. Can you believe it? Well, I guess 20 inches of record setting snowfall can be hard on an almost 30 year old teflon roof. The videos and pictures online are pretty amazing. I posted a great picture of the Metrdome inside after the collapse on my Metrodome blog. Check it out!
Vikings fans are definitely disappointed that this home game is no longer at home, but we will remain hopeful that they can repair the roof in time for the Vikings vs Bears Monday night football game one week from today!
