    METRoDUMP roof Collapses, makes it easier for the VIKINGS...doesn't it?

    All this weather is effecting so many teams, but none more then this Vikings Giants matchup...this delay is going to let Favre probably continue his CHERISHED-star-streak...Allows Percy Harvin to be healthier....Giants are now wasting time & have got to be effected by this unusual turn of events...How good can a team be just sitting around in a hotel all day without the means to practice or watch film for a whole day???

    I mean we do kinda need the Giants to lose this one don't we? Giants lose, Eagles Lose, Bears Lose...We become tied for the division and reclaim the 6th playoff seed

    Do we owe this to the 5th largest snowfall in Minnesota history? Or the poor craftsmanship of the Metro Dump?

    Just saw it on my local news (6abc Philly), they think the game is jinxed! LOL! First the Giants were supposed too leave early because of the snow storm and didn't, got rerouted to Kansas City..... game got rescheduled until Monday... now the dome collapses! All I can say is thank God it didn't collapse during the game!

    Hopefully because they can't show the Giants/ Vikes game on Fox Philly they will show the Packers game instead!!!

    They can come play in Green Bay, but they need to bring their own shovels. Packer fans only shovel Lambeau for the Packers!

    No team in our division should be playing in a dome...poetic justice. You think it more likely they move to L.A. now?

    The Humpty Dome is down. It collapsed from the weight of the snow on top. The game is rescheduled for Monday night.
    Will the Packer game be shown on FOX here in Mpls. since the Vikes game is rescheduled????

    Yes, anything that hurts the Giants right now helps us. It ticks me off how lucky the Bears keep getting as this weather serves them more than the Patriots who are coming off a short week and traveling.

    A little from Column A and a little from Column B :D

    This is fun stuff to work with. I have several die hard vikings fans at work (a contradiction its true). I routinely refer to them as the LA Kings in conversations and then correct myself shortly after.

    Anytime one of the gets testy i toss that in their face and it immediately ends any attitude or pride they think they are putting forward!

    They've got a brand new stadium at the U of Minnesota where the game should be played, but the Yikes are an indoor team and it would not surprise anyone for them to move the game to Detroit or St. Louis--or maybe to L.A. as a preview of the NFL's return??

    My guess would be to move it to the new meadowlands stadium in jersey as its more ready for a game. Offer $25 tickets or something.

    First their Quarterback collapses, then their team, then their stadium :)

    The day the vikings host a home game at lambeau is the day I bring my rifle to the game.

    ESPN said a little while ago itll either be in Detroit or New Orleans. Cant be outdoors cause the Giants didnt bring any foul weather gear, uniforms or sideline. Only thing that sucks out of all of this is it might give the old man a chance to play

    Not surprising, since the NFL takes home games away to play in Canada and Europe. I hope The Interceptor plays, as it makes it that much easier for the Giants d-line to get to him.
