31 years of Vikings football deflate in 35 minutes

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.

Other times, the Vikings collapsed inside of it.

Other times, they found other domes to collapse in.

Farewell, Metrodome. May the Vikings find more luck in a Gopher Hole.
