Yesterday’s NESN broadcast of the Red Sox-Twins game featured a mid-game interlude of the announcers discussing their memories of the dear, departed Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. It also featured video of the Metrodome being imploded—something that never happened.
Are you a memorabilia collector who would like to own a little piece of Vikings football history? Are you also a disgusting person? Then you should head on over to this here auction website and place a bid on one of the many Metrodome bathroom troughs that are currently up for sale.
Portions of the Metrodome were safely demolished in controlled explosions this morning in Minneapolis. Let's watch!
The home of the Minnesota Vikings has been deflated for the final time. This is time lapse video of the roughly 35-minute process. Once home to the Twins, Vikings and Timberwolves, the Metrodome slowly lost all its major tenants but the Vikings. Now that the Vikings have a new billion-dollar facility planned, the…
