It’s a bittersweet day for Minnesota Vikings fans as we say goodbye to the Metrodome for good. It was deflation day for the Metrodome’s Teflon roof, and until early Saturday morning there was doubt weather conditions would allow construction crews to get it done.
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority called their final meeting Friday before the Metrodome’s roof comes down. The MSFA says it all depends on Saturday’s weather. If the wind is too strong, they won’t be able to deflate the roof. But if things go as scheduled, the massive dome will come down. Cameras will be placed inside the stadium and on buildings surrounding it.
