Video: Minneapolis Metrodome Roof Caves In
The Minnesota Vikings have been pushing for a new stadium for a while now. This video shows why they need one ASAP. Their stadium, The Metrodome had its roof torn to shreds due to heavy snow.
The Vikings were previously scheduled to play a game against the New York Giants on the same day, this past Sunday, December 12. Luckily the date and location had already been moved before this happened. It could have been a really tragic situation had the stadium been filled at this moment.
17 inches of snow came down in Minneapolis, which was the 5th heaviest in history. It has yet to be determined whether or not repairs will be made in time for the next game this Sunday. If not, they will play at University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.
