Vikings-Giants game postponed until Monday Night

With a gusty storm Saturday night accumulating snow on the Metrodome's roof, the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission recommended the Vikings-New York Giants NFL game be moved to Monday night.

The postponed game will air at 7 p.m. on KSMP, Channel 9 by Fox's affiliate in Rochester, Minn.; and in New York reported The Pioneer Press.

Seven workers have been blasting hot water with fire hoses to melt the snow.
"I would say so far in my career this is probably at the top as weirdest thing that has happened," Vikings defensive end Brian Robison said.

The Star Tribune reported that not only does this ensure everyone's safety, but it gives Vikings quarterback Brett Favre more than 31 hours to nurse his sprained sternoclavicular joint.
