31 years of Vikings football deflate in 35 minutes

The Vikings' new home will be that of the University of Minnesota's football team, TCF Bank Stadium, aka "The Bank," or "The Gopher Hole." Before all this "12th man" nonsense in Seattle, the Metrodome was sports' loudest venue. It is the only place to host the World Series, MLB All-Star Game, Super Bowl, and NCAA March Madness.

One time, it collapsed on itself.
