MINNESOTA FINISHES JOB IOWA STARTED, BLOWS UP METRODOME

New, 12 comments

Parting is such sweet sorrow.

The Minneapolis skyline looks a little bit different these days.

The familiar bump of the Hump Dump Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome is gone baby gone.  The dome itself went away last month, in a low-key, controlled deflation process (quite different than the sudden, extremely uncontrolled deflation that occurred back in 2010).

Now the stadium itself is turning to rubble, in preparation for the construction of the Vikings' new monolithic downtown stadium.

(another angle here)

It's nice to see the city of Minneapolis and the construction workers toiling away on this project finishing the job that Iowa started in destroying the Dome:

You can tear down the Dome, Minnesota, but all your goalpost are STILL belong to us.

Ah, memories.

Goodbye, Metrodome Kinnick North.
