Algore must be in town...
God is a Packers fan.
“Minn. Metrodome collapses in Midwest blizzard”
Global Warming is ruining football.
I tell you, much more of this Global Warming and we’re all going to find ourselves in a new ice age!
this has happened before....the roof is basically a soft tent and the dome is pressurized to keep it inflated.
no being a football fan, I thought it was scrapped after the Twins moved out a little over a year ago after the 09 division series.
Yep. We haven't had a lot of snow here in North-Central IL, but the blowing is causing white-out conditions. Wife didn't drive in to Rockford today for work. Another employee for the same business in DeKalb tried to get there from Rochelle, but stopped in Creston, 6 miles away, in a panic. She's back home now. Anyone trying to drive outside of residential areas should think again.
Symbolic of the Vikings’ year.
Intentionally deflated. From this article:
Officials at the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, which operates the dome, said two triangle panels on the north end of the stadium are damaged. Officials intentionally deflated the dome.
“You deflate it so you don’t lose the entire roof,” said Bill Lester, executive director of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission. “But that’s all we’re going to talk about until we get some more detail.”
First, “Global Warming” crashes the Metrodome roof....then later this week....Disney World will be hit by temps in the mid-20’s and possible wind chills near zero.
Where is Al Gore when you need him....
So, now I won’t find out if I am in my Fantasy Football playoffs until later in the week? AP has been causing me problems all year.
Sure hope the NFL suffer a similar fate for scheduling the 2014 Super Bowl at the New Giants stadium.
just get a bunch of extension cords and a couple hundred hair dryers then......
No, this is catastrophic global climate change.
It’s caused by rich people who don’t share with the poor people, and can be stopped instantly by men in suits signing a piece of paper.
So... where will they play?
Back in New York maybe??
We have seen the Metrodish here at least three other times in the early 80s.
Maybe a vicious conspiracy to force us to build a new stadium at taxpayer expense because the entertainment industry called football needs our support in the form of corporate welfare. Of maybe 17 inches of snow and 40 MPH winds. One or the other.
Wonder what this will do to the push for a new stadium at taxpayer expense, eh, Zigy?
Part of the plan to get a new stadium at taxpayer’s expense.
I was watching the NFL Network this morning while cooking breakfast (eggs, brats, bacon & bagel) and they had 5 guys shoveling snow off of the metrodome roof. Clearly this is God’s message to the Vikings to play in an outdoor stadium.
