The Metrodome has been deflated

| Monday, January 20, 2014

It happened Saturday morning and this time it was intentional. The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis -- once the home of the Minnesota Twins, Minnesota Golden Gophers football and the current home of the Minnesota Vikings -- had the power shut off and the doors opened, allowing the giant Teflon roof to deflate and demolition crews to begin slicing off huge squares of the fabric.

Check out the photos below of the sad, utilitarian stadium and how out of place it looks -- especially now -- with its days numbered.
