Collapsed Dome

Vikings game postponed at Dome; TCF Bank stadium a possibility


The Metrodome roof collapsed early Sunday morning and the Vikings-Giants game that had been rescheduled for Monday night at the Dome now has been postponed.

The NFL, Vikings and Giants have been conferring this morning on when and where to play the game, but no decision had been made as of 9 a.m.

An NFL spokesman said that the league is exploring playing the game outdoors at TCF Bank Stadium on the University of Minnesota campus, or in an NFL domed stadium.

The roof tore in three places shortly after 5 a.m., said Roy Terwilliger, head of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission.

With the storm dumping nearly two feet on parts of the Twin Cities, the snow was accumulating on the Metrodome roof Saturday night.

Comment: Hope they play at TCF Stadium. But I understand that the Giants did not pack outdoor uniforms. Kind of looks like a collapsed souffle.
