Great news. The Vikings will have a place to play in case there's an NFL season. Plus the Gopher baseball team will have a place to play and all the other events held in the dome will now have a place.

So...I have to ask...the Dome now has a new roof and the building is good-to-go for another 30 years. What's the plan? Tear it down in five years when the Vikings leave?

spring appears to be a bit late in Mpls this year as I see the remains of snow still laying around up there according to the most recent picture they used with this article. Was the last ice fishing tournament held last week on Lake Wabagone ?

I wonder if they found that baseball Dave Kingman hit that stuck in the roof?

There is no way that building a stadium on a toxic waste dump in Arden Hills makes sense for taxpayers. Build in downtown Minneapolis. Halt the Heist!

106 Teflon-coated fabric panels, each weighing 2.5 to 3 tons. That's around 300 tons! I would never have guessed.
