If the stadium is 22 years old, then I need to return to grade school... 2014-1982=? (32)

I think there is a typo in the article - the Dome is not 22 years old, but 32?

I wonder if anyone remembers that it was called the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome.

Piss poor planning. Tell those contractors to do it right otherwise someone will be killed. My late husband worked on this job. I think they all need a raise.

A premature collapse? It's just mimicking what it's primary tenants did almost every year.

This requires an investigation? Ridiculous. They're tearing the thing down. What's there to investigate? Why on earth didn't they just load the stupid thing with dynamite and push down the plunger?
