Metrodome Roof Collapses

The Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis collapsed Sunday after Saturday's record blizzard.
The Metrodome's roof caved in as a result of pressure from more than a foot of snow that Minneapolis recieved Saturday, the Star Tribune said.
The Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants football game that was supposed to happen Sunday has been postponed to Monday night in Detroit's Ford Field instead, the Pioneer Press said.
The University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium would not have worked out for the Vikings game, officials said, because it is not able to be used during the winter, according to the Pioneer Press.
Authorities have said that they are hopeful that the Metrodome will be repaired by the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears game on Dec. 20. The Teflon roof will have to be re-inflated and several damaged panels fixed first, the Star Tribune said.
It is unknown yet if this will affect the Viking's recent push for a new stadium in Minneapolis, the Star Tribune said.
