Metrodome Roof Collapse Video

Kind of like the Vikings’ 2010 season collapsed, right?.

The inflatable roof of the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome gave way this morning after a snowstorm dumped 17 inches on Minneapolis. No one was hurt. It’s the fifth time the Teflon and fiberglass fabric dome roof has collapsed.

The Vikings game with the New York Giants will be played in Detroit on Monday.

Hey! I think if the Vikings win the rest of their games, and the Packers, Buccaneers and either the Giants or Eagles lose all the rest of their games, the Vikings could still make the playoffs. I mean, that's only like ten games that have to work out perfectly in order for it to happen. There's still hope, right?

That will happen on the day it's announced that the moon is made of cheese. I've followed the Vikings since their inception only to be disappointed in the end. But, I continue to follow them in hope that one day before I reach room temperature they will win a Super Bowl. I'm a Vikings fan and don't bother watching anything but a Vikings game.

I blame Big Government.  For both the roof collapse and the Vikings collapse.  Thank you.

Is this proof that the Vikings don't even need to take the field to disappoint?

The roof has deflated in the past, but I'm not sure if panels have been torn before. Anyone one have a better memory than me?

We could go back in time and bitch-slap Dennis Green when they went, what was it, 18 and 1 in regular season, and took a knee at halftime in that playoff game, sort of causing them to lose. Or at least offer to tar and feather Denny if he did, which might've minimized his ugliness, as they clearly should've at least won the stupid bowl then. So long ago, but seems like yesterday.  How come the footage doesn't continue all the way to total collapse? That's the best part. Somehow reminds me of the Titanic. All disaster footage has this eerie feel to it, it could be Ronald about to punch Grimas in the tummy and it would still be eerie. Is this going to cost taxpayers?

There's also this video of a "man" or black horse, or ghost-like blur, escaping the collapse.

Wait a second.  What football stadium is a good 150 miles closer to Mishappolis than Detroit and wasn't busy tonight?  I've got it! Its called Lambrau.  Reminds me of the cover of this Life magazine I saw in the Antique Depot downtown dated Nov 1967. It was a shot somewhere maybe the 30 yard line, some grizzly looking dudes in plain jerseys and thin helmets, the Browns, the Colts, but it was like there was mud raining from the sky.  No sky cams, no instant reviews, just raw football. You'd maybe see the players out in your favorite bar after the game. Queens must think some of yesterday's Lionesse good luck charm will rub off on them tonight, plus it's warm in there, like a den. Detroit needs the money more, don't we know?  What about Favrau? Will he make 300 starts?

Don't you love it when the cheeseheads post their complaints here? Probably a souptown resident.

I've really no interest in comparing dicks about the relative worth of any particular sports team, however I will state unequivocally that Green Bay has the correct funding model for its football team.

This just in: Favre is not playing tonight. The consecutive game record ends at 297.

Change is the only thing constant.
