The Viking & Giants were due to play today @1p. The game was postponed till Monday @8p due to travel for the Giants whom are stuck in Kansas City. But now, the roof has collapsed. This game will likely be moved to a college stadium, University of MN? And be played outdoors tomorrow night. This is going be very interesting. The Giants have the Eagles next week at the Meadowlands.
Go Eagles! Must beat the Cowboys tonight.

Thankfully it wasn't full of 60,000 cheering soles. Wonder what the safety factor was on that engineering masterpiece?

Damn that Al Gore and the global warming!! :shock: :roll: :x :? :idea:

Its only held up with air, and with 18" of snow load.....you know kind of pressure would be required to keep it inflated... :(
It has happened previously.

Here's the specs on the dome...interesting...

The game will be moved to Ford Field in Detroit. I wonder how will that work out in regards to tickets?

Note that Fox as a time listed for the game as 7:20pm.


The owner of the Vikings has been trying to get a new stadium for awhile now. Maybe this is just what he needed to help make it happen?
